Submission of Teacher's Examples
If the students are required to assess some example pieces of work before submitting their own work, the teacher uses this link to submit that work. The teacher can submit any number of pieces of work. If the number of pieces of work is greater than the number of example assessments each student must make, then the work is allocated in a random but balanced fashion. The system tries to assure that each of the examples is allocated to the students the same number of times. The allocation is random in that if, say, ten examples are submitted then it is highly unlikely that the first student is allocated submissions 1, 2 and 3 to assess.
If the teacher submits a fewer number of examples than given in the corresponding parameter of the assignment, the students are given just those examples to assess.
After the teacher has submitted the examples it is important for the teacher to assess these examples. The assessments by the teacher are used internally when the students assess these examples. The closer the teacher and the student are the higher the "grading grade" awarded to the student. The assessments made by the teacher are private to the teacher, they are NOT show to the students at any stage during the assignment. The grades awarded to the students for these assessments are, however, displayed to the students. Once graded, the students are given an oportunity to re-assess the example if they to get a better grading grade.
The examples and their assessments can be viewed and revised from the Administration page of the workshop.
