1. Critically assess the advantages and disadvantages of implementing such a system.

2. Explain the kinds of systems that are available for you to consider. Choose one approach and provide both a description of how you would implement it in a class of 30 students and an explanation of why this was the best choice of the variety of comparative systems.

Every professor will be required to develop an absolute performance measurement system.

Describe how you will implement an absolute performance measurement system in your classes next year, recognizing that you can devote no more than 10 hours per week to preparing for each class, actually participating in the class, and developing and grading any homework and exams. What will you consider in choosing a system and how will you go about implementing it?
