IA04: Project Pitch Vote

Posted: Mon, Sept 5
Due: Monday, Sept 12, 11:59 AM

Assignment Overview
This assignment has three parts:
  1. Read through your assigned project pitches. We randomly selected the titles/abstracts that you were assigned. Each student must review two project pitches (but you are welcome to review more).
  2. Review your assigned project pitches using the Google Doc evaluation form that we created
  3. Read through as many other project pitches as you would like and then rank your top three favorites.

Please read the pitches carefully. Your votes matter. You will be working on one of the following projects throughout the rest of the semester.

Part Two: Project Pitch Evaluation Form

For each of your assigned project pitches, you must fill out this evaluation form. Note: you can also fill out additional review forms for as many project pitches as you would like but you must complete your assigned reviews.

Part Three: Rank Your Top Three Favorite Project Proposals

Finally, read/skim other project proposals and rank your top three by filling out this project ranking form.

This ranking will be used to coordinate group forming. We cannot guarantee that you will be placed into a group that you ranked within your top three but we will try our best. In the cases of ties, we will give priority based on timestamp (earlier is better). If we cannot assign you to one of your top three choices, we will place you on a team that seems closest to your interests. If you have a very compelling reason to be on a team with a particular individual in the class, please email me and CC Matt.
