									               Group Evaluation: Assignment Sheet

The Assignment:
For each essay, you will evaluate yourself and the other members of your group in terms
of group participation. You should undertake this evaluation honestly and thoughtfully to
be sure your assessment is accurate and valid. When you consider the grades you will
give, you should think about a variety of things:
     Have you/group member come to all invention workshops and peer reviews fully
        prepared?
     Have you/group member stayed on track and focused throughout the group time?
     Have you/group member given your full intellectual effort to the group
        workshops and peer review?
     Have you/group member participated fully in helping to flesh out ideas, providing
        different perspectives, asking questions, providing necessary compliments and
        critiques etc.?


Why:
Invention workshops and peer review are an important part of the writing process, and
like many of the other important parts of class I evaluate them and give you a grade for
them. However, though I have been observing the groups throughout the unit, I can’t
have seen and understood all that has taken place. You, as a member of your group, are
the one best qualified to assess how you and your other group members functioned.

How:
Think carefully and honestly about your own performance within the group. Consider all
stages of the writing process—invention, thesis-writing, and drafting. Using the rubric on
the back of this sheet as a guide, give yourself a grade on the Group Evaluation Sheet. In
the space below the grade, explain in two or three sentences why you gave yourself the
grade you did.

Then, think carefully and honestly about your group members’ performance within the
group. Consider all stages of the writing process—invention, thesis-writing, and drafting.
Using the rubric on the back of this sheet as a guide, give each of your group members a
grade on the Group Evaluation Sheet. In the space below each grade, explain in two or
three sentences why you gave your group member the grade you did.

You should fill out this evaluation before coming to class and turn it in with your essay
in your pocket folder. Your group participation grade will be calculated using all of the
grades you receive (from yourself and your group members).
