Self Grading Final Exams
For self grading your own exam, you should download all the final rubrics and examples posted (perhaps one of you wants to compile them in one document and post for everyone to be extra nice? :).
Return your hard copy exam and submit your self grade: 17:00 Friday
By 17:00 Friday, you need to:
In correcting your exam, double check your points (that each piece has been added correctly in the total, that none are double counted, that points are written clearly in the left hand margin next to each question).
Remember that in the hard copy, you are grading your exam as you submitted it at noon on Wednesday.
(Therefore it should closely match the peer grading, which Kim will compare. The optional additional answers are done separately, not on the hard copy, as explained below.)
Note that you will not get a copy of the peer grades while you are assessing your own exam. You are assessing your exam against the rubric.
Optional: Half Credit for Missing Answers: also 17:00 Friday
It's optional to make additional corrections to demonstrate that you now understand the material fully, in order to get up to half credit for answers that would now be fully correct. (For example, if you gave yourself a score of 6 based on your in-class answer, but now turn in a full correct answer, you can get half credit for the 4 points you missed, for an additional 2 points (total of 8 points)).
If you want to do this, add your new answers in the appropriate place in the Word version of the exam that's posted on Live, in a different font color.
You need to explain what you did wrong, and how to correct it (e.g., "I only gave one example and two were required. For the second example, I would say that the paraphrase needs to use original sentence structure, for example by moving the subject to the beginning instead of at the end."
Only mention what you would correct (no need to repeat what is already correct).
I've created a private Live folder (not visible to other students) where you can submit your optional exam corrections by 17:00 Friday.
How is the final exam grade determined?
Kim will compare the score you gave yourself with the final score from your peers (determined after peer grading.)
If your scores are within 10% of the peer grades, you will get the score you gave yourself.
If your score is more than 10% different than the grade from your peers, Kim will review your exam and decide on the appropriate exam grade, based on the rubric.
Kim will then consider any optional half credit answers and determine the points earned there, which are added to the exam grade to make the final grade.
