Group Assessment Criteria

Your Group Project will be prepared online and contribute 20% of your final mark. The assessment will be carried out on the completed project page after final submission. An evaluation of some assessment components will be added to the project discussion page after final submission.

The bullet points below each criteria provide additional information on the assessment component.

1. The key points relating to the topic that your group allocated are clearly described

  • The selected embryology topic includes all of the relevant information and is not missing key topic elements.
  • Allocated individual topic areas (sub-headings) to research have made to the final project.

2. The choice of content show a good understanding of the topic area

  • The choice of content, headings and sub-headings, diagrams, tables, graphs show a good understanding of the topic area
  • Project sub-heading structure is appropriate (see also assessment 1)
  • No key topic areas have been missed.

3. Content is correctly cited and referenced

  • Text within the project page is correctly cited.
  • Research articles and reviews can both be used, but are clearly identified.
    • Research articles - contain original research findings.
    • Reviews - are useful summary overviews of a topic but generally within the review do not include original research findings.
  • Images within the project page is correctly cited.
  • Reference list does not contain multiple copies of the same article.
    • Note though that an individual article may appear several times as a cotation.

4. The wiki has an element of teaching at a peer level

  • The wiki has an element of teaching at a peer level using the student's own innovative diagrams, tables or figures and/or using interesting examples or explanations.
  • The content has been designed for an university undergraduate science student level.
  • Acronyms and terms are well explained.
  • Peer feed back process has been completed and has useful criteria and assessment comments.
  • Image summaries include a useful description in the context of the project page and not simply the original legends (though these can be included).

5. Evidence of significant research relating to basic and applied sciences that goes beyond the formal teaching activities

Evidenced on your own student page and the project discussion page.

  • Project work will be completed generally outside formal teaching times.
    • Contributes to the additional component required by the university.
    • Some time will be made available in practical classes for group "face to face" discussions.
  • Maintain a personal weekly project diary on your own student page.
    • My project contribution this week .... Identified the following useful research arcticle, review, link, image, Discussed with group members... etc.
  • Contribute to the discussion between group members on the discussion page.

6. Relates the topic and content of the Wiki entry to learning aims of embryology

  • Well structured project page showing a broad understanding of embryological development.
  • Includes relevant historic and current research.
  • Molecular signaling mechanisms are included within e project page.

7. Clearly reflects on editing/feedback from group peers

Clearly reflects on editing/feedback from group peers and articulates how the Wiki could be improved (or not) based on peer comments/feedback. Demonstrates an ability to review own work when criticised in an open edited wiki format. Reflects on what was learned from the process of editing a peer's wiki.

  • Peer feed back process has been completed and has useful criteria and assessment comments.
  • Project reflects changes based upon group and peer feedback.

8. Evaluates own performance and that of group peers

Evaluates own performance and that of group peers to give a rounded summary of this wiki process in terms of group effort and achievement

  • Project discussion contributions.
  • Maintain a personal weekly project diary on your own student page.
  • Peer feed back process has been completed and has useful criteria and assessment comments.

9. The content of the wiki should demonstrate to the reader that your group has researched adequately on this topic

  • The content of the wiki should demonstrate to the reader that your group has researched adequately on this topic and covered the key areas necessary to inform your peers in their learning.
  • Includes links to other UNSW Embryology related topic/content pages.

10. Develops and edits the wiki entries in accordance with the above guidelines

  • Content, lack of contribution, or online behaviour not complying to the above assessment criteria will result in individual negative assessment marks.
    • Project page edits can be used in assessing ongoing and/or significant contribution to final project page.
    • Contributed images not complying to referencing and copyright conditions.


Peer Assessment

The peer assessment process is carried out later in the semester (TBD) when the projects are in a "close to completion" state. Each student in the class will carry out an individual online written assessment of the other group projects.

  • Your peer assessment (/10) will contribute towards your final individual assessment mark.
  • With the current 6 group project this means 5 assessments will be carried out within a week.
  • Your online assessments will appear in two places:
  1. on your own individual student page
  2. on the discussion page of each project. (added anonymously, do not identify yourself)
