CON3.07 – How to Turn Group Marks into Individual Grades (Room A339)

This session reports findings related to the use of a new approach for the grading of undergraduate assignments.  The premise of the experiment is that undergraduate students in Political Science benefit greatly from group work, but that there is of yet no effective method to deduce individual course grades from group marks.  The requirement to produce individual grades thus acts as an obstacle to efforts to transform learning groups into a true learning community.  By using a relatively simple mathematical technique, this experiment demonstrates that it is possible to generate individual course grades while assigning only group projects and producing only group marks.  The audience will be asked to participate in the interactive validation of the experimental results.  This will insure that they are appraised of the mechanisms involved in this new approach, in addition to being more aware of the practical usefulness of the theoretical premises that support this approach.
