Grading

(Aug 7, 2013)

Evaluation

The posts and comments will be evaluated based on criteria including the following:

  • Does the post contribute to or advance the class understanding of  the topic?
  • Does the post build on a situation presented in class or on the analytic skills of the course?
  • Does the post present a thesis and an argument?
  • Does the post stimulate further comment and discussion?
  • Is the premise clearly conveyed?
  • Is there original financial or other analysis?

Thought provoking, well argued posts will be looked upon more favorably than the re-hashing of old arguments or the simple re-telling of stories and facts about other situations or experiences lacking the connection and “so what?” link.

Paraphrasing news accounts or other third party commentary is not a good idea; this venue is not a clipping service.

Obviously you should be wary of self-plagiarizing and not re-use your own work from another course.
