2. Criteria for Evaluation:
Teaching Assistants will work with a criteria file that includes specific
information required (as necessary or sufficient). Generally, TAs are using
the following criteria:
Terms:
2/2 = A: complete identification; student clearly articulates the term; student
relates the term to other concepts in the course; student provides a concrete
example (if applicable); student contrasts and compares the term
1.5/2 = B: complete identification; student clearly articulates the term;
student makes an attempt to either relate the term to other concepts in the
course or provide a concrete example (if applicable) or an attempt at
contrasting and comparing
1/2 = D: Some identification and attempt at articulation of the term;
unsuccessful attempts at providing additional context; issues with clarity
0.5= F: incorrect/insufficient identification; insufficient significance;
explanation relies too heavily on ideas outside of course content

5/5 = A+: high quality writing; succinct and direct approach to the
question; clearly identifies (without simply copying the question) which
question is being answered; answers completely all components of the
question; demonstrates an advanced comprehension of the readings and
lecture topics; provides an argued response that goes further than discussed
in tutorials/lectures.
To receive a 5/5 response is to be nearly perfect; good enough that we will ask
the student if we can use it as an example in lectures and tutorials to talk
about terms/essays on quizzes. Rare.
4.5/5 = A/A+: All of the above the preferred mark for an excellent
response; 5/5 and 4.5 should both have very few to no technical errors
(spelling, general sentence structure) and no substantial errors. Mastery of
course content.
4/5 = A-: clear writing; complete response; attempts analysis,
comparison, or some big picture/critical thinking; able to repeat our
discussions of the topic, but may not add anything original, analytic, or
evaluative to the discussion. Some mastery of course content.
3.5/5 = B: Good effort; attempts to respond to all aspects of the
question (even if not always successful); does everything well, but does not
demonstrate confidence or any independence in navigating through course
content.
3/5 = C: similar to a B, but less evidence of
familiarity/confidence/independent analysis of material; issues with clarity
and writing; student provides course content, but it is only formulaic (and no
attempt by the student to paraphrase and demonstrate their comprehension
in their own words); student does not address all components of the question
2.5/5 = 50/D: more severe examples of ‘C category issues;
demonstration of not reading the textbook; short and insubstantial responses
(or long-winded and irrelevant responses).
2/5 and lower = F: Students writing is unclear, contains a pattern of
errors, illegibility, etc.; discussion is not grounded in any material resembling
lecture/tutorial/course readings.
