Course Management 
Title and Description can be whatever you like.  
Maximum grade is set to a number from 0 to 100. For all of the following examples, we 
will use a maximum grade of 100.  
Grading strategy has several options   Accumulative, Not Graded, Error Banded,           
Criterion, and Rubric.  
     Accumulative grading: This is the default setting. Accumulative grading breaks each 
project into sections (you determine the number, from 1 20) that can be individually 
graded and commented upon. The grades of each piece determines the final grade                 
(based on the maximum grade you set). This style of review uses yes/no questions, 
grading scales (i.e.,  poor  to  excellent ) and purely numeric grading (1 100). 
     Not Graded:  This setting is used for peer review where the students may comment 
on work, but not grade it. The teacher may assign grades to the comments that are 
made; not assigning grades on the comments means the assignment does not 
count for a grade (it is used for peer comments only). 
     Error Banded: This style of grading sets up multiple yes/no expectations for an         
assignment. If the element is there (a  yes  answer), credit is given; if not               
(a  no  answer), no credit is given for that part of the assignment. Each                
individual part may be weighted if desired. 
     Criterion: For this type of grading scale, you set up criteria for the peers to choose 
from. The students then chose ONE criterion that most closely matches the project. 
Each criterion has a grade assigned to it, so by choosing one criterion, the reviewer 
gives the grade associated with that comment. 
     Rubric: This review setting is very similar to  Criterion,  except that the teacher         
assigns different sections to each project. Then, within each section, the reviewer 
selects one comment that most closely matches the project being reviewed.         
Grades from each section are then combined to give the final grade. 
Number of Comments, Assessment Elements, Grade Bands, Criterion Statements 
or Categories in Rubric field determines how many elements an assignment will have 
evaluated. This is the number of things you wish to have evaluated. You could set this to 
 3,  and have the peers evaluate on style, content, and grammar  (for  example).                    
If  this  field  is  set  to  0,  then  the  group  may  only  make  comments  in  the                            
 General Comments  section of an assignment. 
Allow Resubmissions field allows students to resubmit their assignment at any time. 
This can be useful to encourage students to write several  drafts  incorporating                
suggestions made. The system will then keep the highest grade of all the assignments 
submitted by the student (the highest grade is the largest teacher peer combined score). 
Number of Assessments of Examples from Teacher forces the students to walk 
through one or more example projects that the teacher has put online. The student will 
have to make comments and grade the project, and then these comments can be graded 
by the teacher. Students can NOT submit their own work until they have gone through all 
of the examples the teacher has set up. 
Number of Assessments of Student Submissions field sets how many other projects 
the student can evaluate and comment on.  If  there  are  more  submissions  than  the           
allowed assessments, the reviewer will get a random set to evaluate. 
Self Assessment field, if set to  Yes,  allows students to evaluate and grade their own 
work.  This  is  added  to  the   Number  of  Assessments    (if  the   Number  of                           
Assessments   is set to 5, the student  must  still  evaluate  5  other  students'  work).                 
If the  Number of Assessments   is set to  0  and this field is  set  to   Yes,   then  the                  
project is for self evaluation only. 
If the Assessments must be agreed field is set to  Yes,  then the assessments from 
students are open to review from other students. If other students disagree with the 
evaluation made by the original reviewer, then the evaluation process will continue until
