Fifteen percent of the grade for this class will come from a report that talks about the topics covered in weeks 09 through 12, with a nod to the lessons you drew from the movie we will watch in week 12.
The purpose of this assignment is to demonstrate your awareness of the themes we discussed. Start your thinking with a quote from David Easley and Jon Kleinberg.
... in addition to a language for discussing the structure of networks, we also need a framework for reasoning about behavior and interaction in network contexts. And just as the underlying structure of a network can be complex, so too can the coupled behavior of its inhabitants.
For this assignment, create your network diagram and submit a pathway to it in Sakai assignments, so that the instructor may be able to see it.
This task should be done by your group and your group should turn in a single product that reflects the agreed position of your group.
|Points earned||What it means||A description of what it means|
|14.25 or more||Mastery in displaying an understanding the individual perspective and group information networks in terms of categorization, classification, search behavior, and information design at the highest level of attainment that can reasonably be expected||Evidence of a thought through network diagram in which size, shape, color, and connections are all clear, understandable, robust, and structured|
|14.10 to 14.23||A totally acceptable performance demonstrating an adequate level of understanding of individual perspective and group information networks in terms of categorization, classification, search behavior, and information design||Really, really good, but perhaps not enough to convince one that it is a full illustration of an information network|
|13.65 to 14.09||Really good, but perhaps a bit shallower in terms of either content and/or format|
|12.90 to 13.64||Good, but perhaps even a bit shallower in terms of either content and/or format|
|12.30 to 12.89||Good, but not as good as it could have been|
|11.85 to 12.29||A marginal performance.||OK, in terms of having created a network diagram, but not good in terms of articulating your understanding in a manner that is easy to read and appreciate|
|11.40 to 11.84||You seem to have made an attempt at creating a network diagram, but you did not articulate your understanding well enough to do more than the minimum|
|10.80 to 11.39||It's time to start wondering if you missed something important, if you misunderstood the task, if you did not understand the key elements|
|10.35 to 10.79||This is a warning that you are not currently on the right path; you might need to have a discussion with the instructor about this performance|
|9.00 to 10.34||There are indications that you were present and that you sort of grasped what we had discussed, but missed the key points to such a degree that you really need to re-group and catch up|
|less than 9.00||For whatever reasons, an unacceptable performance||If it's unacceptable, it is unacceptable; it should be as obvious to you as it is to the instructor|
