  • 3 pts for use of git hub

    • 0pts: no repo or a repo with no unique commits
    • 1pts: evidence of at least one commit. read me not updated
    • 2pts: evidence of semiregular commits, read me updated only partially - either missing name of team member or failing to update the read me from the template
    • 3pts: evidence of multiple commits, read me updated to reflect the repos purpose, team member name and handle included
  • 3 pts for Rmarkdown

    • 0pts: no .md or plots commited. no changes evident on the Rmarkdown file or formatting in Rmarkdown incorrect (e.g. code outside code blocks, text inside code blocks, etc)
    • 1pts: evidence of knitting, commiting, and pushing changes to Rmarkdown but knit to an html, pdf, doc, or other not .md output. OR knit only once and .md is totally out of sync with the .Rmd changes.
    • 2pts: Synced .Rmd, .md committed, but not all plots committed and/or displaying properly. Markdown looks clean and nicely formatted OR .Rmd, .md, and plot files all committed but out of sync so newest changes and plots add to Rmd not displaying. Markdown looks otherwise clean and nicely formatted OR Synced .Rmd, .md, and all plots committed and displaying properly. Markdown has extreme errors or formatting issues that should have been caught by a cursory review before submission.
    • 3pts: Synced .Rmd, .md, and plot files all committed, plots displaying properly. Markdown looks clean and nicely formatted
