OBJECTIVE

Each scholar will use the EA1 Self Evaluation of WR1 Form provided to self evaluate his/her own WR1 Written Report in accordance with the criteria listed below.

RATIONALE

This EA 1 Self Evaluation assignment is designed to promote basic skills that instructors should use when evaluating WRITTEN WORK that their students have produced. Self evaluation has proven to be a good prerequisite activity to engage in before undertaking the evaluation of other people.

Evaluation is one of the most difficult parts of the instructional process. In order to evaluate written work effectively it is necessary for instructors to be able to do three things. First, instructors must be able to state clearly and specifically what someone should reasonably be expected to be able to do as the result of reading what was written (student performance objective). Second, instructors must be able to recognize and comment upon particular things that students have done well (positive reinforcement). Third, instructors must be able to make specific suggestions that will help students to improve where improvement is needed (constructive criticism).

CRITERIA

Cmplete all three sections of tthe evaluation in the sexact same format as the example. Its OK to copy and paste the text from the example into an e-mail message and then just change whatever needs to be changed so that the evaluation relates to what was in your own WR1 written report.

Please review and emulate the Fred Fudrucker example of the: Pay particular attention to the language that Fred uses and emulate that language as closely as possible when writing your own comments.

All three of the following criteria must be met to earn full credit:
  1. On the "OBJECTIVE" section of the form, indicate clearly and specifically what someone should reasonably be able to do as a result of reading the WR 1 report. Hint: since the report is intended to provide a list of resources that would be appropriate for a particular course, you could say that anyone who reads the report should be able to identify resources that would be appropriate for the course cited in the report!.

  2. On the "POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT" section of the form indicate two things that were done particularly well. Begin your comments in this section by using your own name (see the Fred Fudrucker example). Be sure to use words like "good" and "excellent".

  3. On the "CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM" section of the form indicate one thing that would improve the quality of the report. Begin your comments in this section by using your own name and the words "I suggest..." (see the Fred Fudrucker example). It is essential that comments in this section be made in the form of a SPECIFIC SUGGESTION that indicates how improvement can be made.
EVALUATION - Evaluation

Scholars who use the same format and the same type of language in the example will earn full credit. The OBJECTIVE should be almost exactly the same, with only the words "Underwater Basket Weaving" changed. Be sure to begin both the POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT snf the CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM with the name of the person you are evaluating (in this case that person just happens to be yourself!
