Senior Research Presentation Rubric

From the Geoscience Department, Indiana University of Pennsylvania


It is used to grade students in the senior capstone course.


Every faculty member in the department uses the same rubric to grade the presentations made by seniors on Geoscience Day.

Use of the Data

Rubrics are aggregated and used to determine the Best Paper and Best Research awards as well as student grades. Paper copies are then saved by the course instructor.


It helps us conceptualize what we are looking for but has not been useful for reviewing changes from year to year.
