During the Grading Evaluation Phase students can no longer modify their submissions or their assessments. The instructor can use the grading evaluation tools to calculate final grades, manually override grades, provide feedback for authors and reviewers and select example submissions to be published for all students to view after the workshop is closed.
Teachers may use the grading evaluation tools to calculate final grades and provide feedback for reviewers.
There are many options in creating a workshop. If you have any questions about the workshop please contact the ITRC for additional assistance.
This guide will help you to:
You will want to see the additional Workshop guides for more information about each phase
In this phase, users cannot modify their submissions or their assessments. You may use the grading evaluation tools to calculate final grades and provide feedback for reviewers.
This process will calculate the grade for how well the students assessed their peers.
Hot Tip: For more details about how the Comparison with the best assessment is calculated see http://docs.moodle.org/22/en/Using_Workshop and scroll down to the Grade for assessment section.
Note: You can adjust the strictness and recalculate the grades.
Hot Tip: At the bottom of page in the Workshop Toolbox you can clear all the aggregated grades or delete all the assessments. If you delete the assessments, you cannot recover the data.
Each student will receive two (2) grades. The first one is an average of all the assessment marks for their submission. The second one is for how well they assessed their peers.
See the chart and the screenshots below for examples and explanations.
- (-) < Abu
Maria’s submission has been allocated to Abu (see screenshot). Abu has not yet assessed the submission.
72 (-) < Gertrude
Maria’s submission has been allocated to Gertrude (see screenshot). Gertrude has assessed the submission, giving the grade of 72. The grade for assessment (grading grade) has not been evaluated yet.
72 (-) > Maria
Maria's submission was assessed by Gertrude, receiving a grade of 72. The grade for this assessment has not been evaluated.
87 (10) < Hypatia
Maria’s submission was assessed by Hypatia with a grade of 87. The grade for this assessment has been evaluated as a 10.
78 (10) @ 3 < Pat Instructor
Pat instructor assessed Maria’s submission, giving the grade for submission 78, the grade for this assessment is 10. The assessment has a weight of 3.
69 (10 / 7) > Euclid
Euclid's submission was assessed by Maria. Euclid's submission received 69 and the grade for this assessment was calculated to 10. The instructor has overridden the grade for assessment to 7, probably with an explanation for Euclid, the reviewer.
You can review all the submissions and assessments. As you review you may override submission grades or assessment grades, weight an assessment and designate submissions for publication after the workshop is closed.
Review and/or Override Author’s Submissions, Grades and Select to be Published
Hot Tip: You can use the up and down arrows to sort the list of submission by author’s first or last name, the title of the submission, the grade for submission or the grade for assessment.
Note: Submissions selected for publishing will be highlighted in the spreadsheet overview of grades and submissions.
Note: The calculated grade appears in the Calculated Grade for Submission area, just above the dropdown menu.
Hot Tip: You can use the title of the text box as a reminder of who you are providing feedback for - either Feedback for the Author or Feedback for the Reviewer.
Review and/or Override Reviewer’s Assessments and Weight Assessments
Note: You can use assessment weighting to balance an even number of reviewers. The grading works better with an odd number of reviewers.
Note: The calculated grade appears in the Calculated Grade for Assessment area, just above the dropdown menu.
Hot Tip: You can use the title of the textbox as a reminder of who you are providing feedback for - either Feedback for the Author or Feedback for the Reviewer.
Once you and all the students have assessed the submissions allocated, you are ready to move to the Closed Phase.
