Fixing The Uncategorised Issue

8 Mar

I’ve just had a quick look at the categories (available on the right hand side) and noticed that we currently have 86 posts uncategorised. Will the people with these posts please update them with the right category. This is achieved by going into your posts, and clicking on the right category (available at the bottom right) and unticking “Uncategorised”, and then clicking “Update”.

This will benefit the class as a whole, as currently these posts are in limbo.

Marking Scheme

28 Jan

The deadline for IS2200 Assignment 2 is 10h March, 2012. The Total Marks for the Assignment are 15% of the total marks for the module. Marks will be provided to Students before the end of term.

Marks will be assigned to Students on an **individual basis** and according to the following guidelines:

– Up to 10% for Topic Effort

– Up to 20% for Group Effort

– Up to 70% for Individual Effort

So a Student will be awarded marks for the Topic (for example the work performed by all groups in a given topic), the Group (for example the work performed by their own group in a given topic), and for their Individual (for example work performed by the individual in the group) efforts.

The quality of the effort (at topic, group, and individual levels) will be scored according to the following criteria:

– Quality of entries

– Quantity of entries

– Coverage of topic

– Referencing of external material

– Amount of inter-group feedback/comments received

– Amount of external feedback/comments received

Individuals will also be scored on their efforts to provide constructive feedback/comments on the blog entries of other groups.

Penalties (for late submission of Course/Project Work etc.): Where work is submitted up to and including 7 days late, 10% of the total marks available shall be deducted from the mark achieved. Where work is submitted up to and including 14 days late, 20% of the total marks available shall be deducted from the mark achieved. Work submitted 15 days late or more shall not be accepted.

Some Things To Keep In Mind

28 Jan

Posted below are the categories for the assignment, and the groups that are assigned to each category.

Students are expected to work with their groups in order to create blog entries for their assigned category. This involves students building on their team members previous entries, with their own entries.

Please remember to tick your assigned category before you publish a post.

Students must exercise caution when publishing content and ensure that material is not in breach of copyright or privacy rules.
