Click here to load your scores in a new window.  Remember that you must enter a metacognitive response to this score and the feedback below — as those instructions indicate, no more than 15-20 minutes, but a focused 15-20 minutes.

You’ll note that I’ve put both classes together in this document to save time and space; note, however, that in an adversarial, you are competing directly against only your immediate classmates.

Use the scores to center yourself around how well you did.  Relatively speaking, a 74 or 78 (the lowest scores, excepting the student who earned the first zero ever awarded) means that you did not answer many questions correctly, either by volunteering or when challenged directly.  Even an 84 or 88 means that you lacked something; perhaps you didn’t augment your scores, and perhaps you simply weren’t keeping up with the assigned work.

Focus your metacognitive journaling especially on how much work you did over your spring break to prepare for the last two days of this adversarial.  Start with this: Did you finish the novel?  Not reading the 30 or so pages given to you is obviously not helping.  On Thursday, how did you do answering questions about the plot?  Look at your copy of the text; if it’s not annotated, you hurt yourself.  On Friday, were you able to contribute to the discussion by continuing to read closely and annotate the Chapter 26?  If you didn’t read or annotate in advance, as you were instructed to do, why was that?

For this adversarial, which ended a few days before your spring break, you spent part of two week discussing two responses to world poverty: Peter Singer’s “The Singer Solution to World Poverty” and Ryan Reynolds’ “Competitive Eating.”  You earned points through class discussion, a set of group responses to questions on rhetoric and style, and individual responses to a second set of QORAS.  The components are listed here:

  1. Singer’s article
  2. QORAS for “The Singer Solution”
  3. Reynolds’ article (with QORAS attached)

As always, you earned points for effectiveness, especially in collaborative work, and you had the option to augment your scores with additional work — limited a bit, yes, but still an option.  Below, you can load spreadsheets that give your scores by student number.  Augment totals are given, too.

Update: Thanks to some sleuthing by one of your peers, the links below have been fixed.
