Course Management 
the students do agree, or until the assignment passes the closing time. 
Hide Grades before Agreement field allows the teacher to hide the numeric grades 
from other reviewers while they are trying to reach agreement. If this field is set to  Yes,  
then all the numeric parts of the evaluation are hidden   students can only see each 
other's comments. The grades will appear after the reviewers agree with each other. 
Maximum Size limits how big the project can be. In general, we recommend making this 
as big as you can unless space is an issue. 
Deadline field sets when the workgroup assignment closes. After this point, student 
grades will appear (if hidden) and peer evaluation stops. 
Workgroup Evaluation Types 
Getting a workgroup ready for evaluation requires 
setting up each section (evaluation elements).   
These elements vary depending on the type of 
evaluation you select. Once you have added a 
workgroup, it has no evaluation elements in it. To 
Fig. 28 
add the elements, click on your new workgroup. In 
the example (Fig. 28) displayed on the course 
homepage, it is called  Uses of Computers . 
Accumulative Grading Strategy  
This is the default grading strategy. It allows for 
various styles of evaluation, including yes/no 
questions,  scaled  questions,  and  numeric                
evaluations. If you selected this strategy on the setup screen, you will see something like Fig. 29. 
We have elected to have 5 elements on the evaluation (2 are off screen). 5 to 10 elements is fairly 
typical for a Workshop, but you can create from 1 to 20 elements. 
In the blank space next to  Element 1,  fill in your 
evaluation standard. This varies on the type of 
element you are using. For Element 1, we will use 
a  2 point Yes/No scale.  Note that the  2 point  
does not refer to how much the question is worth 
(that is set using the weight). The  2 point  refers 
to the fact that there are 2 options available (yes 
Fig. 29 
or no).  
Since we are using a yes/no answer, we need an 
element that can be answered using yes or no. 
For our example, we will use  Is the paper 2 
pages long or longer?  
Type of Scale allows you to set how you want the element evaluated. The options are: 
     2 point Yes/No scale 
     2 point Present/Absent scale 
     2 point Correct/Incorrect scale 
     3 point Good/Poor scale (a sliding scale with 3 options) 
     4 point Excellent/Very Poor scale (a sliding scale with 4 options) 
     5 point Excellent/Very Poor scale (a sliding scale with 5 options) 
     7 point Excellent/Very Poor scale (a sliding scale with 7 options) 
     Score out of 10 
     Score out of 20 
     Score out of 100 
In all cases, the points are for the element ONLY. A  Score out of 100  is not for the 
whole project, but for the element is it assigned to only. In my  Element 1  example, I will 
use a 2 point Yes/No scale.
