Teaching assistants will contact students via course mail within two weeks of the project due date.TAs will inform students who fail to list URLs to their e-portfolios that their projects will not be scored until the URL appears under the Class tab.  TAs will check project reports for originality using Turnitin.com Project reports that include passages drawn from other sources but are improperly paraphrased and/or cited and referenced will be returned to students for revision. Project reports that appear to be plagiarized will be forwarded to the course instructor for review and possible disciplinary action.  Project critiques should include acknowledgement of successful features of each report, in addition to itemized list of shortcomings.  Students who earn less than 90% of possible points should be encouraged to revise and resubmit project reports within one week. Project 1 is worth 100 points. Evaluation criteria include: Quality: 50 points. Data and metadata should be correct. Map projection properties should be clearly described in students’ own words. Text drawn from other sources should be properly paraphrased and/or cited and referenced. Phrases, sentences, or passages copied from other sources and not paraphrased, quoted, and properly cited and referenced violate Penn State’s academic integrity policy. Citation and reference guidelines are published at https://www.e-education.psu.edu/courses/geog482/policies.shtml#citation Project reports should include at least two in-line citations. Completeness: 35 points. Map projection produced using Interactive Album of Map Projections should appear. All required text elements should be present. Project report should be linked to students’ Penn State e-portfolio home page. Timeliness: 5 points. Project report should be published prior to the assigned due date. Above and beyond: 10 points. At Penn State, the course grade “A” (which corresponds to at least 90 percent of possible points in this course) denotes “exceptional achievement.” In this course, project reports that fulfill minimum requirements earn a score of 90 out of 100 points. Up to 10 additional points are awarded for report elements that exceed minimum requirements. For example, students can earn “above and beyond” points by adding to their e-portfolio home page a short paragraph of reflection on what they learned, and how that learning relates to their personal experience or job responsibilities. Adding and commenting upon distortion ellipses, multiple projections, or other supplemental illustrations also earn “above and beyond” points.P01 Rubric 27Oct06.doc 2 PROJECT REPORT ELEMENTS VALUE Project report available online via link from home page in student’s PSU personal Web space account by project deadline.
