Individual Portfolio: 40 points (20 project/20 writing)
In addition to your group grade based on the preceding items, each individual will submit a portfolio of contributions. This portfolio will determine the quality of your individual additions to the page. For this reason, it is critical that you are logged in as yourself to get credit for changes you make. If you are working with another person in your group in a truly collaborative fashion, I must get signed consent from the user whose name is associated with the change to include you in the credit. We will explore ways that wikispaces can help us do this.
