Develop a quality assessment process
Every week during this class, you will be working with a group to complete a group assignment. Each week there will be a different assignment with different requirements.
In order to receive credit for the group project, students must have demonstrated participation in the project. Participation is measured by the group discussion board, group file exchanges, and recorded group collaborate sessions. Individual assignments will not be accepted.
Be sure to review the grading rubric weekly for each group assignment.
