for Spring2008, the first semester that the course was offered as a permanently numbered course, saw 50students enrolled in one section of the University Park course.Enrollments in CMPSC 200 have since skyrocketed; eight sections containing a total of roughly480 students are being offered in the Fall 2017 semester at University Park. The course is notoffered at every Penn State campus, so some students who begin their academic journey at anothercampus location wait to take the course until they have transitioned to University Park.

in 3 sections. Only thefirst six rows (A-F) of the middle column of seats (1-13) were evaluated during the study due tothe camera’s limited field of view and maximum image resolution of 1280x720 pixels. Figure 1shows a snapshot from the camera during a regular lecture. The 78 seats in the front (A1-F13)comprise the region of study. The third section of seats is located to the left of those pictured.Teams were randomly seated with their teammates across the rows. This eliminates the self-selecting factor of student engagement in the front row of class. On average, 22.21% of the seatsin the region of study were empty during lecture.

stepsIn this paper, we focus on assessing two courses from two different tracks in our department. Wechose courses from the Networking and Database tracks, namely Networking Fundamentals andDatabase Fundamentals. Two tools that we used across both of the courses were commonassignment and common rubric for evaluation. We attempted to tackle problems associated with:(a) interpretation of scores assigned by different instructors in different but related courses and(b) how to improve mutual common assignment to be more immune to individual graders whilebetter preparing students for a real-life challenges. The detailed methodology of our approach isdescribed in the next section. Fall 2017 Mid-Atlantic ASEE Conference, October 6-7 – Penn
