The members of Groups were pre-determined at the start of the class. (Kristopher, Kali, Scott, Nathan, and Samir). Within your team, your professor has selected Kristopher as team leader.
Next, structure your team and come to a consensus as to whom will handle a certain facet of the Project.
Each group will be writing and rewriting its group project paper several times on the Team WIKI until it is truly a literary master piece. Please note that there is one grade for the Team Project paper. More importantly, the grade posted for each member of the respective group is based upon the Team grade and the individual student’s participation on the WIKI. Too often in Group projects, you have only a few who do most of the Work. The Professor is able to evaluate how much work (percentage) each member of the group puts into the Project via a WIKI participation report. As the Professor is able to view who was actually making an effort to edit and/or add to the Wiki; the Professor will Grade the individual member accordingly. In addition, each Group Team Captain will submit an Evaluation Report to the Professor detailing the efforts or lack thereof for each member.
For example, a Team Group Project paper may earn a grade of 85. A team member who well participated in the project may receive a grade of 95. A team member who had average participation in the project may receive a grade of 85. However, if a team member participated very little in the project which is verified by the Team Captain, then that student may receive a grade of 50.
