2019-03-12 17:23:27 -0600 commented question Sample rubric for translation assignments?

Additionally, I would be interested in the overall assessment model for a translation assignment. I saw the grading structure available in the Instructor Basics brochure, but that doesn't quite apply for my assignment either. Is there a model available for that?

2019-03-12 17:22:03 -0600 asked a question Can I add a peer review assignment to my translation assignment?

I saw on the help forums that there is a built-in mechanism for students to do peer reviews of each others' work, and it looks like there is a pre-set peer review module that you can use if you are doing a normal article-drafting Wikipedia assignment. I'm doing a translation assignment, but I still think it could be valuable to have my students do a peer review. Can I get access to that pre-set module and add it to my course somehow?

It looks like there is also a training for students on how to do a peer review, but no rubric available. Is that correct?

Is there a sample rubric for translation assignments? I downloaded the example rubric here, but I'm not sure that all the items are appropriate for a translation assignment.

2019-02-27 17:19:13 -0600 asked a question How much time do in-class activities take and how are they prepared?

I am planning a translation assignment, and I see in my timeline that the blocks of content alternate between "In Class" and "Assignment". How much time should I plan to cover those "In Class" items? Are they whole class periods? Are they of differing lengths?

Right now they're just general descriptions, plus some handouts. Is there more material somewhere, or is it up to me to develop this class day?

As an example the third week of the assignment has a module called "Translation" that's marked "In Class". This is what it says:

  • Be ready to discuss your progress translating your article.
  • Carefully note the original citations for facts in your source article.
  • If an original source doesn't seem reliable, feel free to omit it from your translation.
  • Handouts: Citing Sources and Avoid Plagiarism

Should I plan to develop a lesson around those topics using those handouts, or does some lesson already exist? And, either way, how much time should I plan for it?
