Focus Group Discussion FMIPA UNEJ Final Project Rubric

The standard of assessment in the learning process is something that must be done. As is the case with all courses held by the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, University of Jember, the final project as one of the courses requires the same standard of assessment in the four study programs at FMIPA. “In order to be standardized, it is considered necessary to have an assessment rubric for the final assignment exam, both during the proposal seminar and the final project session,” said the Dean of FMIPA UNEJ, Drs. Achmad Sjaifullah, M.Sc., Ph.D. Focus Group Discussion (FGD) Final Project Rubric was held at Kalibaru Cottage Banyuwangi (28-29/5). This event is the Head of the Department and Komisi Bimbingan of each study program at the FMIPA. Furthermore, The Dean said that the rubric can be used as a guide for assessment and also as a reference for students in preparing seminars, either proposals or thesis trials. “It will be easier for the assessment process if we already have a rubric, not only assessors but those who are assessed, namely students will understand aspects or components of the final assignment assessment,” he continued. The existence of this rubric will indirectly speed up the student’s study period, because they can prepare the final project properly by paying attention to the assessment rubric. “What can also be produced through the assessment rubric is a more objective assessment for lecturers and students” he concluded.

The agenda for the first day, Saturday, May 28, 2022, was followed by a presentation on the perception of the final assignment rubric from the komisi bimbingan of each Study Program.
