The discussion assignment for this week includes a review of the Key Assignment outline completed by one of your classmates, as well as a substantial response to at least 1 other student.
Primary Task Response: The discussion assignment for this week will be a review of the Key Assignment Draft from other students. Your first task is to post your draft to the discussion area so that other students will be able to review your work. Attach your document to your main discussion post with the subject “Project Rationale,” and include a paragraph of 2–3 sentences describing your rationale for approaching your project problem the way that you did. Include any additional notes that you feel are appropriate in the post. You are not being graded on your Key Assignment draft at this point. The purpose of this assignment is to help improve the quality of your Key Assignment.
Responses to Other Students: Review at least 1 other student’s draft report, and provide 100 words of meaningful feedback. Refrain from generic feedback, such as simply stating “good job.” Your feedback to other students will be most helpful if you not only point out weak areas but also offer suggestions for improvement. The best feedback takes a 3-stage approach to identify the following:
- What was done well
- Areas for improvement
