Week 14

1.   Portfolio Submission

You must submit your portfolio by Friday, May 3 @ 9 AM or risk failing the class.

Essay Submission Instructions:

  1. Essays will be submitted through Google Classroom.  You may access Google Classroom from your drive in CIDocs (Click Google Apps>click More>choose Classroom).
  2. The classroom should immediately be visible. If not, check to see that you’re using your MyCI account. You must log out of your regular Gmail account and log into your MyCI account in order to complete this process.
  3. Once inside, you’ll find an assignment, Final Portfolio. Please read the instructions.
  4. Open the Google doc attached to the assignment. You will find a basic template with instructions.
  5. Please follow the instructions on the template exactly to make sure your portfolio meets submission requirements. As explained on the template, you will delete those instructions before submitting your portfolio.
  6. Portfolio #s: Find your section #, then look for your name, and your portfolio # will follow.
  7. Copy your projects and paste them into the document. Place the Making a Difference project first in front of the Thinking About Reading and Writing group project. You can modify the document until you click “TURN IN.”
  8. Do not ADD or CREATE any other files as part of your submission. You must copy and paste your portfolio contents into this template in order for your portfolio to be evaluated by the Composition Faculty.
  9. You must click the “TURN IN” button to submit your portfolio for scoring. DO NOT DO THIS UNTIL YOU’RE FINISHED REVISING YOUR PROJECT.  Once your portfolio is submitted and the deadline has passed, ownership will transfer to your instructor; you will no longer be able to edit the document.
  10. For any questions about this process, contact me or the Composition Director, Dr. Stacey Anderson, at stacey.anderson@csuci.edu.

Essay scoring:

2 composition faculty members separately read and score your essays using the writing criteria as a rubric. The scores are added together for a total. Scores are then translated into letter grades.

11, 12 – A

10 – A/B

8, 9 – B

6, 7 – C

4, 5 – D

3 and below – F

In the event that readers score an essay with a discrepancy of more than one point, a third read takes place. For example, if your portfolio is scored a 3 by one reader and a 5 by another, then a third reader reviews the portfolio. In the event that none of the readers can agree on the score, the classroom instructor makes the final decision.

Grade Protests:

If you feel your portfolio was scored incorrectly, you may protest your grade by contacting me no later than Week 3 of the Fall 19 semester.
