Peer Evaluation Grading Sheet Point Value 3 Category (Frequency) Outstanding Rare (0-10%) 2 Significant Frequent (10-30%) 1 Good Common (50-70%) -1 Unsatisfactory Rare (0-10%) Components of in-class contribution The comment adds substantial value to the discussion. Demonstrates willingness to take risks in attempting to answer difficult or unpopular questions. Breaks new ground and raises the flow of discussion to a higher level, often by synthesizing material and applying multiple lenses or techniques. The comment adds value to the discussion, beyond case facts. There is evidence of analysis rather than just the expression of opinion (although some espousal of opinion is acceptable, even desirable in certain circumstances). Comments are linked to those of others, facilitating the flow of the discussion. Demonstrates knowledge of readings and other relevant course material. Incorporate relevant insights from other courses or current affairs. The comment advances the flow of the discussion (including responses to questions from the instructor). Demonstrates clear grasp of case material. Information presented is relevant to the discussion. Lack of preparation for class discussion; failure to listen. Criticisms are directed at others versus towards their ideas. Defensive behavior (e.g., aggression or withdrawal) is exhibited. Drains energy from class goals. October 19, 2013
