Grading student Web Projects
Your student web page projects need to include:
You are welcome to scan your own un-copyrighted images to use on your web page.
- More than one page (to show that you can make links to your additional pages). You are also encouraged to make links to additional places further down on your main page.
- At least one hyperlink to an outside web site. BE SURE THAT ALL OF YOUR LINKS WORK!
- At least one graphic (do not use copyrighted images, and be sure to give FULL CREDIT to any
web source from which you obtain an image. If you use an image from another site, it is common courtesy to
request permission to use the image, even if a copyright is not expressley stated. E-mail to the address listed for the web site,
and request permission. Tell them that it will be posted on the web as a student project. If someone asks you not to use their image,
then do not use it. Include credits if you are given permission.
- Make your image "clickable", or include a hyperlink with it that will take you to the original source of the image.
- Research on an approved geologic topic (an amount equivalent to two standard typed double-spaced pages)
- At least one ordered or unordered list
- Include your name (and the names of all students who worked on the web page)
- Include the date you completed the web page
- Include a section with references to all sources used for your research
- Include a mention of copyright information, or credits for any images you may use. Do not use
copyrighted information unless you have obtained permission to reproduce it on the web. A copy of the permission
must be filed with your instructor.
- Do not plagiarize text by copying it from other web sites.
- Do not use white or yellow text; hard to read and impossible to print
You are encouraged to use tables.
How to submit your project:
Your web project should be uploaded to your e-mail account, following the directions on
the college page for student web pages.
You should obtain a "permanent" student e-mail account, rather than using your class account,
which will expire at the end of the quarter (taking your web page with it). If you have an outside internet account,
please feel free to load your page onto that account.
For either of the cases above, you will need to submit only your http address of your web page. I will make links to it from
the class page. Please try out your address from a computer other than your own to be sure that all of the pictures load properly.
Web projects may also be submitted on disk to the instructor.
Again, please try out your file on disk from a computer other than your own to be sure that all of the pictures load properly. One of the biggest problems I have with projects is
a file that refers to an image stored on your C-drive at home. The web page only works at your house if the address of the image is c:/.
You will get points for your web project as follows:
Extra credit will be given for the effective use of tables (approx. 5 points).
- 10 points - multiple pages with links to them; links up and down the page (such as "Return to top of page")
- 10 points - images, with credits; no copyrighted images
- 10 points - hyperlinks. do they work?
- 5 points - lists used effectively
- 5 points - included names, date, references, etc.
- 10 points - overall appearance (colors, backgrounds, layout)
- 50 points for the quality and quantity of the geologic research material you have written. Includes spelling and grammar.
