December 18, 1999
The following method was used to arrive at the final project grade
for each student:
Thanks to those of you who provided feedback
on your own performance and of your team. The information you provided
turned out to be very useful in computing ICI and deciding on the final
project grades. If anyone has any questions about the project grade, please
contact me via email or in person.
The project grade was computed for each team out of a total of 50. The
distribution of 50 points was as indicated on the CS 406 site under Evaluation.
Each student on a team was assigned the same grade.
Based on the feedback provided by team members and team leaders, and data
on meeting minutes, an Individual Contribution
Index (ICI) was computed. The ICI varied from a high of 1 (highest
contribution) to 0 (no contribution). A total of 25 students were identified
with an ICI of less than 1. The smallest ICI computed was 0.3.
The final project grade of each student was multiplied by her/his ICI to
obtain the effective grade in the project. It is this effective grade that
was used to in the overall course grade out of 100. You will be able to
find your ICI along with your grade on the 406 homepageby clicking at Check
