Team Values and Norms


Team Values

Each team member will be prompt and arrive at the team meetings on time. If an unexpected conflict comes up, the absent team member will notify at least one team-mate prior to the expected absence. An absent team-member should confirm that a team-mate has received their message (in person, voice mail, email, etc).
Each team member will complete their tasks thoroughly and completely, so that the work does not have to be re-done by a peer on the team. If a member does not know how to complete a task, feels overwhelmed, or needs assistance then the member notifies peers, and seeks assistance either from a peer, the faculty guide, a faculty consultant, or another person.
Each team member completes their work accurately and in a way that can be easily checked for accuracy by peers and the faculty guide. All work is fully documented and easy to follow.
Professional and Ethical
Each team member gives credit where credit is due. All work completed includes citations to appropriate literature, or sources of assistance. If a team member has gotten assistance from a publication or individual, then that assistance or guidance is fully documented in the reports prepared. Each team member is honest and trustworthy in their dealings with their peers.
Demonstrates the core RIT values of SPIRIT.
Each team member will contribute an equal share to the success of the project.

Team Norms: Weekly Peer Assessment Rubric

Accepted Norms of Performance: Weekly Peer Assessment Rubric
Value Unsatisfactory Needs Improvement Meets Expectations Exceeds Expectations
Punctual The team member has had one or more unexcused absences or tardy arrivals to a scheduled team activity. The team member is not notifying others of conflicts with meeting times. The team member has had one or more unexcused absences or tardy arrivals. The individual could and should have done a better job at notifying (in advance) a peer of the absence. The team member was prompt and present at every agreed team event this week, or any absences were excused in advance. Not only is the team member always prompt and present, but the member clearly plans ahead for excused absences (such as job trips) and insures that the absence will not adversely affect the team's performance.
Thorough The team member has not completed the task assigned, or has submitted a response that is clearly insufficient. The work will need to be re-done by another team member in order for the team to move forward. The team member is detracting from the performance of the entire team. The team member made some progress towards the task assigned, but not as much progress as should have been accomplished. The team member is getting behind on the tasks that need to be completed. The team member has made solid progress towards the task assigned. The task is complete, and is well done, though it may need some additional work and refinement to be fully complete. The task has been completed fully, and is in essentially finished form. The other team members can readily check the work submitted since the documentation is so clear. Not only is the work done, but everyone on the team recognizes that the task is complete with little or no need for additional effort.
Accurate The work completed by the team member is unacceptable and does not meet the basic standards of engineering work. The work completed must be re-done completely. The work completed by the member contains many errors that must be corrected. While the basic approach to problem solving may be ok, the actual work completed needs to be largely re-done in order to be useful to the team. The work completed by the member contains a few errors that must be corrected. The basic approach to problem solving is good, and the errors are relatively minor and could be readily corrected through normal peer review and checking. The team member completed the task with virtually no errors or omissions. The work was accurate, and can be easily scaled to other applications or tasks that the team may encounter.
Professional and Ethical The team member has committed plagiarism, falsified data, ignored their responsibility as an engineer. The team member may have behaved inappropriately at a team event, or in a manner that reflects adversely on the team. The team member has overlooked some references or consistently fails to cite sources and conduct individual tasks. The team member may have made some off-color remarks or been offensive to a team-mate or other individual. The team member behaves responsibly and fully documents sources and collaborators on all work. The team member is a role model for others, and behaves in a professional and ethical fashion even under very trying and difficult circumstances.
Committed The team member is a burden to the rest of the team. The team member is carrying less than their fair share of the work load. The team member is carrying their fair share of the workload. The team member is carrying more than their fair share of the workload.
