Judges 

The 11th annual SDSU Student Research Symposium (SRS) will be held at the Conrad Prebys Aztec Student Union on March 2 and 3, 2018. Please encourage your students to present their original research and compete for a President, Provost or Dean’s award. 

 
We  encourage all faculty to participate in the event as judges and/or moderators. The success of the SRS is realized when the entire SDSU campus community comes together for two days to demonstrate their commitment, investment, and enthusiasm. We expect over 500 students will participate and, as in the past, we will need at least 300 faculty to judge.


Please don't be concerned about judging a session in which you have a student presenting. If that occurs, you may recuse yourself from rating your own student. We greatly appreciate your important contribution at the Student Research Symposium. As judge, you are helping to identify meritorious student presenters who will be recognized with an award. 
 

Guidelines and Instructions for Judges:

A new online scoring system is going to be used at this year's event!  


ORAL PRESENTATION

 Scoring:

·        Students will be given 10 minutes for their presentation and 5 minutes to respond to questions (15 minutes total).  Presentations are judged on a 5-point scale. Please read the descriptors in each of the categories ahead of time. Available here

·         You will received an email with the link to the online scoring system. Here is an example of what you will be seeing once you have received that link.  Please have this ready to use for scoring prior to getting to your session(s). (If you do not have a smart phone, tablet, or laptop you can bring to use during the session, please contact Ashley Rubio at asrubio@mail.sdsu.edu as soon as possible.) There will be a few laptops available to enter scoring in the judges’ green room. You may also use the paper scoring sheets that the moderator will have available to take notes on and then enter the scores on the laptops in the judges’ green room

·         Select a score (1 through 5) for each of the seven categories.  Select the button next to the number score you wish to record.  It is extremely important that your evaluations are fair, consistent, and that standards/expectations are appropriate for the academic level (i.e., undergraduate, master’s, doctoral).  Be very discriminating with awarding a 5, this score should be reserved for only truly exceptional presentations.

·         Once you have made your selections for each category, click the submit button at the bottom of the page. Note: All fields must be filled out or selected in order to submit. There will be an error message if all fields/scores are not completed. If this is the case, review the form, supply the missing information and submit. After a slight delay you will get a message that your score has been submitted with the options of “Edit your response” or “Submit another response.”

·         You will then select “Submit another response” to continue onto the next presenter in the session.

 

·         If you wanted to “edit your response” this must be done as soon as you have submitted the scores. Once you have moved onto another presenter, past scores cannot be edited.


POSTER PRESENTATION

You are responsible for evaluating only posters to which you have been assigned.  Students presenting posters have been assigned a 1-hour, 30 minute period to stand by their poster and respond to questions.  During this time, you are to evaluate the quality of the poster as well as the ability of the student to respond to questions from you and others. If you happen to be judging a session that includes one of your students, you can judge the other presentations in that session, but abstain from judging your student.

CREATIVE AND PERFORMING ARTS PRESENTATIONS

Review the scoring sheet categories and expectations for each category from the accompanying Instruction for Using Creative Arts Scoring Sheet.  Student presenters were also given access to the scoring sheet, so they should be familiar with it.  

 

Students will be given 10 minutes for their presentation and 5 minutes for a performance element (15 minutes total). For each presentation, fill in your personal Judges Code, Abstract Number and a score for each scoring sheet category using only full-point increments.  Scores of 5 should be reserved but for only the most exceptional presentation!  Furthermore, make your evaluations consistent with expectations of the academic level (i.e., undergraduate, master’s, or doctoral).  Written comments can be added to the bottom of the rubric and these comments will be separated from your individual scores so that your comments will be anonymous and not identifiable.  If you happen to be judging a session that includes one of your students, you can judge the other presentations in that session, but abstain from judging your student. 

 

At the end of your session, the moderator of your session will collect the scoring sheets.
