Grading

November 23rd, 2020

Your grade in Senior Design will be based on the written report and presentation. Grades will be based on a combination of the following factors:

  • Situation / problem difficulty
  • Quality of work
  • Depth of analysis
  • Professionalism of presentation and written report
  • Originality of work

The first three factors operate together, so that lower problem difficulty can be overcome by higher work quality and greater depth of analysis, while a very difficult project need not be considered in as great a depth as a less demanding problem.  Below is a sample evaluation sheet used by your instructor in assessing your project and course grade.
