Home Work Grading
Grade and correct your own home work.

First do the homework and copy just the short answers onto
another paper and turn it in on Mondays.

I will post solutions after class on Monday. The solutions will be in the 2nd
floor study EE area and on reserve at the library.

Look at the solutions and grade it as right or wrong  no partial credit.
Next study the solutions and rework incorrect problems using the solutions. If it doesn't make sense ask
for help. Get a grade sheet off the web or draw one on your paper and record your
grades and total them.

Scoring  Each problem is worth 10 points. To make things easy
and uniform give your self credit only for correct answers. If there
is only one answer the score could be 0 or 10. If there are 4 answers
the score could be 0, 3, 5, 8, 10 (round fractions in your favor).

Wednesday, hand in the grade sheet, your graded homework
(the original set) and the reworked solutions.

I will record the two grades from the grade sheet for each home work set.

The first grade is for answers handed in on Mondays  NO late credit.

The second grade is for the reworked solutions  This one should be perfect.
Late solutions are reduced 10% per period.

I will spot check your original solutions and your grading.

Both grades will be averaged for the final homework grade (along with the pop quizzes and reading summaries).
Here is a sample grade sheet. There should be one on the web for
each homework set, if not make one like this.

If you did the problem correctly the first time and got 10 points, check
'did not redo' and put 10 in for the second score.
If you elect not to redo a problem check 'did not redo' and put the
same score in for the second score.
If you didn't work the problems and just copied the solutions put zero
everywhere.
FAQ: Why do i need to rework homework for this class, I don't
have to for my other classes?
Answer: On a job in the real world when you are given a problem,
you are expected to work on it until it is solved, not just one good try.
It will help you learn the material better.
FAQ: What should I do if I find an error in the your solution?
Answer: This really happens. Send me email explaining the
error. The first one to notify me will receive 20 extra points.
I will let everyone know by email. If there really wasn't an error
there is no penalty.
