Mid-Term Grade rubric

A full rubric will be posted on the mid-term landing page. In the meantime, please consider the following things as you put your talk together:

  • Presentation structure
    • Introduction,
    • Background,
    • Project importance,
    • Methods,
    • Example results: We know you won’t have results in time for the mid term. But you should know enough about your project to know what type of results you expect to see.
  • Data: clearly present what data you intend to use.
  • Content:
    • A science question that you wish to address or a phenomenon or event that you wish to better understand. It can be related to something we’ve covered in class or to something completely different!
    • An overview of the data types and sources that you intend to use to answer your science question.
    • An overview of the study area you will be working in.
    • An overview of what you think you’ll find working on your project.
  • Everyone in your group needs to present!
