    dominate and the students who grade like the teacher are also listed in the top part of the Error Table The students listed at the bottom part of the table are grading in ways which not match the teacher assessments nor those of the students in the top of the table The more assessments that are available from the teacher the more likely that this option will not have to be used to force the teacher to the top of the table Note that this option does not apply a weighting factor the teacher s assessments when they used in the calculation of final grades In that calculation the teacher assessments have the same weight as the student assessments So for example if a student s submission is graded at 41 by the teacher and 45 and 55 by their peers the final grade given to the submission is 41 45 55 3 that is 47 The Weight for Grading of Assessments is used in the calculation of the Final Grade A simple formula is used to calculate a student s Grading Performance It is the proportion of good assessments that student have done compared to the maximum number of assessments open to them So if for example the assignment asks the students to do 3 assessments of the example submission and 5 peer assessments and the student does 7 assessments and 1 of those is dropped from the analysis see below then their grading performance is 7 1 8 that is 75 The final grade for the assignment a weighted combination of this grading performance and the grade given to their submission or best grade if they made more than one submission The grade for the submission is always given a weight of 1 So setting this option to say 0 5 means that the two grades are added together in the proportion 0 5 1 or 33 of the grading performance and 66 of the grade of the submission The Percentage of Assessments to drop determines the number of the assessments which are to be excluded when calculating the final grades This number can be set in one of two ways Given the way the Grading Performance is calculated each student could if they assessed all the work allocated to them achieve full marks for this element if no assessments are dropped If the teacher wishes to have a more reason average grade then setting this option to 30 would result in the average Grading Performance of about 70 again if all students graded all the assessments open to them Alternatively the number of assessments to drop might be set such that the remaining good assessments result in the Average Errors being constrained to some reasonable value These are the percentages given in the fourth column of the Error Table For example it may be thought that all the student assessments should on average lie within the 20 range Then the analysis is repeated a number of times

    These assessments are private to the teacher they are NOT shown to the students at any stage during the assignment However they are used internally as reference assessments against which the student assessments are compared The closer a student s assessment matches the teacher assessment the higher is their Grading grade The teacher has a degree of control on how the agreement is translated into grades This the Comparison of

    average and poor The SCALE of the assessment element There are a number of predefined scales These range from simple Yes No scales through multipoint scales to a full percentage scale Each element has its own scale which should be chosen to fit the number of possible variations for that element Note that the scale does NOT determine the element s importance when calculating the overall grade a two point scale has the same influence as a 100 point scale if the respective elements have the same weight The WEIGHT of the assessment element By default the elements are given the same importance when calculating the overall grade of the assignment This can be changed by giving the more importance elements a weight greater than one and the less important elements a weight below one Changing the weights does NOT effect the maximum grade that value is fixed by the Maximum Grade parameter of the peer assignment Weights can be assigned negative values this is an experimental feature Error Banded Grading The elements will normally describe certain items or aspects which must be present in the assignment The assessment is made on the present or absence of these items or aspects The teacher must all set of grade table which give the suggested grades when all the items are present when one is absent when two are absent etc If certain items are more important than others then those items can be given a weighting greater than one Minor items can be given a weighting less than one The overall error count is a weighted sum of the missing items The assessor can always make a minor adjustment to these suggested grades Criterion Grading The elements will give a set of level statements which can be used to rank the

    are converted into grades To get some idea on what effect this option has take the fairly simple case of an assessment which has ten Yes No questions For example the assessment might use questions like Is the chart correctly formatted Is the calculated profit 100 66 etc Assume there are ten such questions When the Very Lax setting is chosen prefect agreement between the student s and teacher s assessment gives a grade of 100 if there is only one question which does not match the grade is 90 two disagreements give a grade of 80 three disagreements 70 etc That might seem very reasonable and you might be thinking why is this option called a Very Lax comparison Well consider the case of a student doing a completely random assessment where the answers of the ten questions are simply guessed On average this would result in five of the ten questions being matched So the monkey s assessment would get a grade of around 50 The situation gets a little more sensible with the Lax option then the random assessment gets around 20 When the Fair option is chosen random guessing will result in a zero grade most of the time At this level a grade of 50 is given when the two assessments agree on eight questions of the ten If three questions are in disagreement then the grade given is 25 When the option is set to Strict having two questions out of sync gives a grade of 40 Moving into the Very Strict territory a disagreement in just two questions drops the grade to 35 and having a single question in disagreement gives a grade of 65 This example is sightly artificial as most assessments usually have elements which have a range of values rather
