Your paper should be clearly organized, proofread for grammar and spelling, and all scholarly ideas must be cited using the ASA style manual.This was a lengthy and complex assignment worth a substantial portion of the course grade.In your paper you should also reflect on how your own personal educational opportunities have been influenced by the social factors you identify.

Creating a rubric takes time and requires thought and experimentation.
To complete the assignment, you will use electronic databases to gather data on three different high schools (including your own).
You will use this data to locate each school within the larger social structure and to support your argument about the relationship between social status and public school quality.
Often holistic rubrics are the most efficient, consistent, and fair way to grade a problem set.
When starting to grade a problem, it is important to think about the relevant conceptual ingredients in the solution.Then look at a sample of student work to get a feel for student mistakes.Decide what rubric you will use (e.g., holistic or analytic, and how many points).Here you can see the steps used to create two kinds of rubric: one for problems in a physics exam for a small, upper-division physics course, and another for an essay assignment in a large, lower-division sociology course.In STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), assignments tend to be analytical and problem-based.The drawback to this method is that it can sometimes unfairly penalize a student who has a good understanding of the problem but makes a lot of minor errors.Also, one must assign a point-value to every type of error made by your students, and the variety of mistakes can be staggering.The following is a sample homework problem from a UC Berkeley Physics Department undergraduate course in quantum mechanics.Homework Problem A free electron of mass m 0 is initially at rest until a photon of energy E Compton scatters off of it.Apply the holistic rubric by marking comments and sorting the students’ assignments into stacks (e.g., five stacks if using a five-point scale).Finally, check the stacks for consistency and mark the scores.
