CAMPUS CONNECT Foundation Program 3.

Integrated Project Assessment

1|Page

Objective
This document is written to help Campus Connect partner colleges understand and effectively implement the Integrated Project as a part of Foundation Program (FP) 3.0.

Target Readers
The target readers of this document are Campus Connect College Single Point of Contact (s), College Core Team members and Faculty members associated with FP rollout and hence Integrated Project development.

Background
Campus Connect is an Infosys industryacademia partnership program aimed at enhancing the IT talent in College Campuses. Foundation Program 3.0 is the latest version released under Campus Connect. Integrated Project Development is an essential and integral part of Foundation Program 3.0 Rollout. Campus Connect has introduced usage of Rubrics Methodology for Integrated Project Assessments. Rubrics are a well known tool to set up grading criteria for assignments. A rubric chart is a scoring tool that lists the criteria for the varying levels of performance on a task, or program characteristic where more objective methods of rating are not appropriate. Campus Connect team has used Rubrics to generate a customized evaluation chart for assessing the Integrated Project Development under Foundation Program.

performance in Integrated Project Development. These two aspects are namely, Project Development and Soft Skills. The Project development aspect focuses on the deliverables, quality of development work and the technology features. On the other hand, Soft Skills aspect concentrates on the life skills of the team members and demonstration of the same during Integrated Project development. The rubric methodology has four levels: Excellent, Competent, Scope for Improvement and Needs Efforts. These levels apply to the several evaluation parameters and expected deliverables in the Integrated Project Development. For each parameter there is a brief written description of the different levels of performance based on performance criteria. They are constructed by combining descriptions of different qualities of performance. Each set of descriptions reflects a different level of performance on that evaluation parameter. The Project assessors and / or Faculty members use these descriptions to determine their level of accomplishment on each evaluation parameter. The scale ratings are as Needs Efforts ( No Efforts taken) Scope for Improvement (0-50 percent results achieved) Competent (50-75 percent results achieved) Excellent (75-100 percent results achieved)

Rubrics Methodology for Integrated Project Evaluation


Campus Connect has used two different aspects in evaluating the students 2|Page

ELEVEN evaluation parameters for Project Development and FIVE evaluation parameters for Soft skills aspects have been formulated. These evaluation parameters are categorized in FOUR different buckets - Design Work, Code Development, Project Deployment and Soft Skills. The consolidated list of these parameters with the weight-age associated with each is described in the following section. Integrated Project development carries 100 Marks.

The break up of the same is given in the below table.

Using Rubrics
The Rubrics methodology is used for Integrated Project assessment. 1. Rubrics chart is to be used for three different types of evaluations a. Self Evaluation Each student will self assess the scores as per the evaluation parameters b. Peer Evaluation One student in a project group assesses the performance of other student in the same group. c. Expert Evaluation Faculty members assess the students as per the Rubrics 2. The Self and Peer evaluation is to be done to understand how individuals work has contributed to Integrated Project development. 3. Final Score to be calculated as per the Expert/Faculty Assessment scores.

Student Rating and Student Score. Out of these, Evaluation Parameter, Scale Description, Parameter Description, Parameter Weight-age contain pre-defined values as per the evaluation parameter. The Student Score column is auto calculated and hence is noneditable. The evaluator has to select the rating from the drop down list for the respective evaluation parameter on the basis of the match with Parameter Description. The possible scale ratings are Needs Efforts Scope for Improvement Competent Excellent

The evaluator has to rate each student for all the evaluation parameters as per the above scale. The chart auto-calculates the final score at the bottom of the sheet only after all parameters are rated. Refer to the picture below to understand how the ratings can be recorded.

Rubrics for evaluation

performing

MS Excel 97-2003 version has been used for designing project evaluation template. It has pre-defined evaluation parameters and scale ratings defined as per the tabular representation above. The evaluation contains some calculated cell as per the evaluation parameter weight-ages and student ratings. Below is a snapshot of evaluation sheet for quick understanding. The evaluation sheet has following columns: Evaluation Parameter, Scale Description, Parameter Description, Parameter Weight-age, 4|Page

Steps to record Student ratings 1. Enter the Students roll number in the top cell.

2. Select the rating for each evaluation parameter by selecting the appropriate option using the drop-down. Note: Refer to the evaluation guidelines sheet to understand the expected deliverables and its mapping to ranks.

3. Complete the rating process for all evaluation parameters. This will auto-calculate the total scoring for the student assessed

4. Repeat the steps 1-3 for every student to be assessed.

Extending the chart for large number of students


This can be done by simply adding the additional number of columns after column Q. Please follow the steps below: 1. Select Column D to Column Q 2. Right-Click on selection and Press Ctrl+C 3. Now move cursor to column R and Press Ctrl+V This will create evaluation columns for additional FIVE students. Following the above steps ensures that the auto calculation is enabled for the newly created columns. These steps can be repeated to facilitate evaluation for more number of students in one sheet. Note: Another way of extending the chart for large number of students is to use one sheet per Project Group.

Advantages of using Rubrics for Project Evaluation


There are comprehensive advantages of using Rubric methodology for Integrated Project Evaluation chart. These are as follows: The sheet is designed in such a way that it provides minimum key-presses. Hence provides Ease of Usage. Auto-calculation of score is provided. This reduces the time required to generate final report significantly. The User Interface is clean and extensible. The sheets can be easily extended to accommodate large number of scores. Usage of these sheets ensures appropriate usage of evaluation framework.

Points to Remember
1. The Integrated Project Evaluation is to be carried out by using the pre-defined parameters only. 2. It has to be done in Soft Copy only (NO Prints please). This evaluation sheet is a part of closure report to be submitted at the completion of a batch. 3. The evaluation process includes Self, Peer and Expert/Faculty evaluation. 4. Only Expert/Faculty evaluation is considered for calculating the final scores.
