Simulation Score, Teamwork Grading Rubric, and Peer Evaluation

GB500: Business Perspectives

Simulation Score, Teamwork Grading Rubric, and Peer Evaluation Instructions

 

Teams in the contemporary business environment need to be effective quickly. Musselwhite (2007) states: “People must work closely together, wear many hats, and work effectively across the organization to get tasks accomplished quickly enough to remain competitive” (para 2). Team performance is a key part of success in the fast paced game play of the Marketplace simulation, as well as when working on your Report to the Board of Directors, and your participation as a team member will be graded in two areas.

1)  Simulation performance: Possible 80 points

·         40 points (maximum) for place in the simulation

o   100% — The team with the high score based on the Cumulative Balanced Scorecard results = 40 points.

o   90% — The second place team based on the Cumulative Balanced Scorecard results = 36 points.

o   80% — The third place team based on the Cumulative Balanced Scorecard results = 32 points.

o   70% — The fourth and fifth place teams based on the Cumulative Balanced Scorecard results = 28 points.

       40 points (maximum) for how you perform as a team member

Team performance is measured by multiple data points.

o   Time Spent in Simulation: Minimum of 150 minutes of active game play per player, with a goal of at least 400 minutes. Active participation can include the view function, but emphasis will be placed on the modify, calculate, and save functions to demonstrate active participation.

o   Peer and Self-Evaluations: Peer and Self-Evaluations are completed in Units 2, 4, and 6. You will receive a maximum of 10 points for each completed evaluation. To receive full points, you must give feedback to peers and evaluate your own performance. For these confidential evaluations, please ensure that you address the total contribution of each team member. This can include information on the simulation as well as any other team activities the team is assigned. This is important information to complete, as it gives your instructor an understanding of how individual team members contributed to the total team success.

Peer and Self-Evaluation Process 

Teams in the contemporary business environment need to be effective quickly. Musselwhite (2007) states: “People must work closely together, wear many hats, and work effectively across the organization to get tasks accomplished quickly enough to remain competitive” (para 2). Factors that aid in this effectiveness are self-assessment and timely and accurate feedback to team members and leaders.  

In the fast-paced game play of the Marketplace simulation, as well as when working on your Team Introduction Paper and Final Team Presentation, each team member must be able to give objective feedback, receive this feedback in a spirit of continuous improvement, and make changes to increase team effectiveness. 

There will be three times when formal feedback is required for all team members: Units 2, 4, and 6. 

Parts:

Feedback Required:

Part I  

How does this person work on the team? 

Part II  

How does this person work with you? 

Part III  

How helpful has this person been to the team? 

Part IV  

Has this person’s behavior weakened the performance of the team? 

Part V  

Please offer comments about teammate’s performance, including his or her strengths as a team member and areas for improvement. 

Note: As part of the comments area information, please include specific information on overall team participation including work on the report to the board.  

 

The evaluation process rarely takes more than 10 minutes to complete and it provides comprehensive and targeted feedback to each team member. The evaluation survey will ask you questions in these areas and will be used to help evaluate team performance in the simulation and the Final Team Presentation. 

Evaluation Process 

1.    Your instructor will create an evaluation, and you will receive an email from your instructor through Marketplace when it is available. You will be able to complete the evaluation the next time you log into the Marketplace simulation. You must complete the evaluation by Tuesday night at 11:59 ET. Please do not complete the evaluation prior to the end of the unit so you can provide complete and comprehensive data.  

2.    The welcome screen will take you through each step of the process, which includes confidentially evaluating all team members and yourself. 

3.    The scores will be tabulated, and you will receive a report that contains the information collected from the evaluation. 

4.    Note: You cannot see your scores until you have completed all of your Peer Evaluations.

 Grading 

You will receive points for completing the online Peer Evaluation during Units 2, 4, and 6. In addition, the three Peer Evaluations that you complete will help the instructor assess the participation grade in the Unit 6 Final Team Presentation.

 

Note: Substandard efforts in team participation can also affect your grade on the Assignment.
