I am in my second year of teaching at a chapter that was neglected for years. I'm finally starting to see some improvements in all areas with the exception of SAE's. Many students didn't have an SAE program when I came, thus I started implementing them. At this year's banquet, I would like to give out proficiency awards. Problem is, my junior class has only two people with an active SAE (my toughest class to get motivated, of course) and I haven't had time to get them started on this year's SAE programs. My other classes, however, have every student having an active SAE. Should I still give proficiencies this year? Also, does anyone have a rubric of how they grade their proficiency candidates at the chapter level?
Another question - does anyone have a rubric for grading Star Greenhand and Chapter Farmer? I want to do these awards as fairly as possible. Thanks for any suggestions or imput!
