Each student group will submit by email or on paper three (3) possible topics for their web project, ranked in order of preference. Your instructor will provide feedback on the appropriateness of each topic, and the group will then decide which topic to research and publish. Once a topic has been claimed and posted on the Web Project list, no other group can use this same topic.Grading:
Web projects will be evaluated by your peers and instructor. Each student will review and comment on websites from two other groups. These student comments, along with comments from your instructor, will be available to the website authors, who will revise their sites for final grading and publication.
The websites will be primarily assessed by the quality of the physics explanations. Organization, style, and readability are lesser considerations for grading.
A = complete and accurate physics explanations, good organization, style, and readabilityWeb Resources:
B = mostly complete and accurate explanations, good readability
C = many incorrect or incomplete physics explanations or poor readability
F = no project submitted
A sample critique is provided as an example of what is expected for this peer evaluation.
To help promote proper group cooperation, each student will evaluate the contribution of each member of their group. This contribution factor will be multiplied by the final score on the website, so that each student will be rewarded according to the work he or she contributes to the project. If each member contributes equally, the individual contribution factor should be 1 or 100%, a member who contributes half as much as others should receive a factor of 0.5 or 50%, and a member who does not participate at all gets a zero.
