The Raw Data

 

Each rubric specifies a list of tasks. For each task instructors describe an exam question or homework problem representative of the task. I will refer to these as task questions. For each task question the instructor records the percentage of passing students (i.e., students who received a C- or higher in the course) who received full or near-full credit.

Notes:
  1. Kim combined the statistics from two sections. I simply reported the same results in two columns.
  2. Kim reported two questions that addressed CS46B.Task3. I averaged the results.
  3. NT = Covered, but not tested.
  4. NC = Not covered.
  5. NA = Not applicable (because the corresponding section didn't exist).
