Assessment Elements

Assessment Elements

  • non-blocking In-class participation
  • non-blocking Assessment: CORE report + presentation (exam)
    Please, be aware that: 1) There are no blocking forms of assessment. 2) If a person missed in-class activity, have not submitted CASE report or networking/newsmaking task, he or she receives a ZERO (0). If you skip the class (unverifiable illness or personal circumstances, participation in university-sponsored events or sports/case activities, or documented chronic illness) you cannot compensate the missed points by any kind of extra activity. 3) Late submissions will only be accepted at the discretion of the instructor and will be subject to penalty. Less than 24 hour delay in submission = -15% of total MAX grade related to a certain task 24 hour – less than 72 hour delay in submission = -30% of total MAX grade related to a certain task More than 72 hour delay (but no more than a week delay) = -50% Submissions with a delay equal to more than a week will only be checked with comments, the ZERO grade will be put. Late submission rules will be used for all kinds of report (CASE, CORE, networking/news making home tasks, etc) Course rules (expectations) At any time in class or in social network of the course or in any kind of communication with instructor/teaching assistant or colleague, student is supposed to follow these rules: 1) Treat all participants in the class with respect. Only 1 microfone is on stage: if someone is doing a presentation, the rest of class is attentively listening. Do not distract others (this is particularly important due to the size and number of students in this classroom). Your cooperation is important for creating an effective learning environment. 2) Arrive on time and avoid early departures and, if possible, exiting the room during the class. These issues bother the class dynamics and distract other students. 3) Use laptops or other technology in the classroom only when appropriate for the activities for that session. Unless you have received permission directly from me, please turn off all phones, tablets, computers and other electronics and ensure they are put away out of sight for the entire duration of class. 4) We are not against of you drinking coffee, tea or water to refresh yourself. However, eating in class is allowed only in case if everyone is given an equal opportunity to join you: basically it means that we are supportive to overall pizza classes (example), but a single person eating a lunch in front of the others will be asked to save it for the break. To compensate the inconvenience, we offer a refillable box of sweets that is available for everyone during the class. Details on this option will be given during the first class. If you are unable to comply with these expectations you may be asked to leave the classroom. 5) Students are expected to come prepared to contribute to every class. Preparation includes reading the assigned chapters and preparing any assignments. Participation requires timely attendance for all classes and contributing to class discussion in a constructive/respectful manner 6) I take a great deal of care to ensure that the TAs use the same templates for grading all assignments, and that some recitations are not graded more strictly or leniently than others. TAs will check several reflection papers, networking and news making activities. TAs will not check CORE report, CASE report. TAs will take part in the assessment of the presentation. We presume that you have read HSE University’s Academic Integrity and Honesty documents. you are responsible for avoiding plagiarism and citing all sources used in this assignment. Your assignment will be checked for originality. Please let your TA know if you have any questions about this. It is the responsibility of each student to read, review and ask questions concerning the syllabus.
