CriteriaExceeds Meets AllExpectationsMeets Most ExpectationsDoes Not Meet Most AnyExpectationsCommentsOnce the Seminar has been implemented, the course instructor(s) will evaluate the seminar based on the Seminar Rubric. Students will receive a copy of the seminarrubric with feedback (comments) and points awarded in each criteria category -- not later than one week following the seminar. After examining the feedback and points,Seminar Team members (either collectively or individually) may request a reconsideration of the points by submitting a Seminar Portfolio. The Seminar Portfolio is acollection of material used in planning, implementing, and evaluating the seminar. It contains information collected and developed by the team and/or by an individualteam member. Thus, it serves as evidence of the planning and preparation that went into the development and implementation of a Socratic-style seminar that met theestablished criteria.Seminar portfolios may be submitted by the entire team or by individuals. They must be submitted no later than the final class meeting. Portfolios may besubmitted in paper or digital formats. The submission of a Seminar Portfolio does not guarantee a change in points. Rather, it is a formal process asking thecourse instructors to re-evaluate the seminar in light of new evidence. Based on new evidence, the course instructor(s) may award additional points in any oneof the established seminar criteria up to a maximum of 4 additional points.Seminar Portfolios submitted must include a table of contents that provides navigation to the following required items:Seminar Portfolio[Optional – Up to 3 additional points]1.2.3.4.5.6.7.8.Seminar Planning SheetSeminar Goals/Objectives with Team Roles/Responsibilities identifiedCopy of all Advanced Material (if applicable)Pre-assessment (must include both the form used to collect data and the forms/data collected during the seminar)Environment (must include diagram of seminar setup)Seminar Materials (must include copies of PowerPoint, handouts, etc.)Seminar Schedule (must include start-stop times for each segment of the seminar)Seminar Strategy (must provide the plan and instruments (handouts, forms, instructions, rubric) for promoting, guiding, and collecting evidence of discussionamong participants)9. Seminar Research (must include) an annotated bibliography of materials read and/or used for planning and implementing the seminar; b) an outline, organizednotes, or PowerPoint script that provides evidence that the team (or team member) selected and synthesized substantive, legitimate research to not onlyestablish the basis for the seminar but also to guide the discussion)10. A list of the questions and/or prompts that promoted and guided discussion in both large and small groups.Also, for individual team members who submit Seminar Portfolios:Copies of the two REQUIRED seminar evaluation documents are required in a portfolio submitted by an individual seminar team member. HOWEVER, in cases where aSeminar Team collectively submits a portfolio, then copies these materials should NOT be included in the Seminar Portfolio. The additional information requiredincludes the following:1.2.Self and Team-member Assessment: Using Team assessment form (See Self/Team assessment form), each member of the seminar team is required toevaluate self and all team members.Seminar Evaluation and Reflection: Each team member must submit a reflection paper that includes discussion ofa.the degree to which the seminar achieved/did not achieve its goals based on data collected during the seminar;b. strengths and weaknesses of the completed seminar; andc.changes that would improve the seminar if it were to be offered again.For this second part of the self-evaluation, each team member must write at least one and no more than three word-processed pages It should be in a narrativeformat (i.e., essay).Students not satisfied with seminar grade can earn up to 3 additional course points by submitting a Seminar Portfolio.
