Marking criteria[edit | edit source]


Marking will reflect two criteria:

  1. Regularity/continuity (33.3%)
  2. Depth/insightfulness (66.6%)

Regularity/continuity[edit | edit source]

  1. Regularity refers to demonstrating a consistent and continuous engagement throughout the unit. The idea is to encourage and reward ongoing, regular participation in, and reflection upon, the unit's learning activities (e.g., lectures, tutorials, readings, and assessment tasks).
  2. Note that regularity isn't necessarily about the date of posting, but rather about providing evidence of engagement (via reflection) across and throughout the unit's learning activities.

Depth/insightfulness[edit | edit source]

  1. Depth refers to the extent of one's engagement (thinking, questioning, reading, researching, etc.) in the unit's learning activities. Length/size of contributions may be an indicator, but more important is the quality and depth of demonstrated engagement.
  2. There isn't a set way you to demonstrate this, but the following might be indicative: length, quality, references, links, ideas, opinions, discussion, images etc.
  3. Note that additional contributions that you make to Wikiversity outside of your user page plus contributions to the discussion list will also be considered as part of your e-portfolio (because it demonstrates engagement), however such participation is optional and an HD-level e-portfolio could be written without such participation.

Rubric[edit | edit source]

This marking rubric offers generic qualitative descriptions of likely reports types for each grade:

Grade Description
HD (High Distinction) A regular, detailed, extensive (indepth), insightful, readable, complete record of one's participation in the learning activities of the unit which demonstrates a strong knowledge of social psychology and makes particularly effective use of the Wikiversity environment.
DI (Distinction) A very good record of engagement with the unit's learning activities, with notable contributions in several areas (e.g., discussion list, notable depth or insightfulness) and makes very effective use of the Wikiversity environment.
CR (Credit) A sufficient and reasonably complete record of engagement with the unit's learning activities, with some evidence of notable additional effort (e.g., notable depth, insightfulness, and makes effective use of the Wikiversity environment.)
P (Pass) A sufficient and satisfactory record of engagement with the unit's learning activities.
F (Fail) Does not provide a sufficient or adequate record/evidence of satisfactory engagement with the unit's learning activities.
