Grading

Grading of Student Achievement

100% coursework

Each student is to complete four editing assignments that focus on different aspects of editing – action continuity, dialogue, music video, and trailer. How competent, effective and imaginative their editing performances are will be evaluated at the end of the semester.  Grading pattern: Standard (A+, A, A-…F)

Grading is based on performance in assessment tasks / activities.

In-Class Critique and Discussions

This assessment task reviews students’ participation and performance in discussions, debates and peer critique during the tutorial sessions. The evidence of ‘negotiation’, the sign of discovery, lies in students’ pre-class preparation and interpersonal sensitivity to his/her peer members.
