OBEM Grading Through Avatar

  • Updated

  Avatar

is the grading system developed by the Computer Center of King Mongkut's University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT). It is for the KMUTT teacher to use for OBEM and Course grading administrations. 

Concept of OBEM grading

The assessment result of the learning outcome from each module must identify the level of student's proficiency according to the defined rubric of the ultimate learning outcome. At least "C" must be guaranteed as the expected level for both OBEM and Course grading through the Avatar system (except for any other cases that depend on the teacher's consideration). We do not encourage you to put the letter grade with plus (+) for the OBEMs because it cannot identify the level of student's proficiency preciously or you must determine an additional level (with plus) to reflect the proficiency level.

Course grading (OBEMs to the Courses) can put the letter grade with plus (+) which is calculated by the assessment weighting of each OBEM to Course Learning Outcome (CLO).

Teacher can fill out the assessment result in the Excel sheet for both OBEM and Course gradings. 

Consider these bullets if the score is used as the learning outcome assessment

  • The total score of each module should reflect the proficiency level according to the defined rubric of the ultimate learning outcome.
  • The score of the learning outcome assessment should come from the performance level. Affective score and attendance could bring about an error result.
  • The frequency of proficiency level is encouraged to use as the learning outcome assessment which could give a better and more efficient result than the score.
