Explanation of Scoring

When viewing the comments for your score, there are 2 groups, each with multiple numbers:

Faculty:

  1. Score from faculty member(s) for Slides (scale: 1-5)
  2. Score from faculty member(s) for Speaking (scale: 1-5)
  3. Score from faculty member(s) for Topic (scale: 1-5)
  4. Score from faculty member(s) for Quality (scale: 1-5)
  5. Score from faculty member(s) for Questions (scale: 1-5)
  6. Score from faculty member(s) for Timing (scale: 1-5)
  7. Total score from faculty member(s), i.e. average of above 6 items (scale: 1-5)

Students:

  1. Score from students for Slides (scale: 1-5)
  2. Score from students for Speaking (scale: 1-5)
  3. Score from students for Topic (scale: 1-5)
  4. Score from students for Quality (scale: 1-5)
  5. Score from students for Questions (scale: 1-5)
  6. Score from students for Timing (scale: 1-5)
  7. Total score from students, i.e. average of above 6 items (scale: 1-5)

For each evaluator, a niceness factor is calculated as a ratio of the average score they gave to the average expected score (3). So if on average an evaluator gave scores of 4, then their niceness is 1.33 (since 4 is 1.33 times larger than the expected average of 3).

The niceness factor is used in normalizing all scores. To determine the score, the actual score given by an evaluator is divided by that evaluators niceness factor. So if an evaluator with niceness of 1.33 give a score of 5 to another student, then that students score would be 3.75.

The final score given for your proposal presentation is the normalized score from faculty members. Scores from student evaluations did not count towards your grade.

For some groups there is no evaluation from students (e.g. exchange groups, and session A). But note that student evaluations do not impact your grade.
