This is professor's comment, I added here to make sure everyone will read it;
A reasonable evaluation system must contain the following properties:
1. Focus: The evaluation system should reward and stimulate the kind of learning activities that are thought to be most valuable in the course. Therefore, the evaluation must be based on the content and learning objectives of the class.
2. Timeliness: In any evaluation system, constant feedback would help influence the activities before everything is too late. Revealing the grade at the end of semester is in general, too late.
3. Fairness: No pre-determined preferences to a particular group or person. One should also consider how to motivate people with less starting skills. For example, if this were an English Speech Class, evaluation can be based on the increment/improvement of skills, not on the starting language skills of students.
These are some perimeters of designing a evaluation system.
This group does not have any discussions yet.
