`Element Weight sets the weight of the element. In our example all 5 elements are `
`weighted with a weight of 1. That means each element  is  worth  the  same,  or  20%           `
`(5 elements at 20% each = 100%). If we feel an element should be worth more or less `
`than other elements, we can change the weight (from 0 to 4 times weight   there are `
`negative weights as well, but they are experimental). In our examples, we will leave the `
`weight as 1. `
`Element 2 field, we will choose one of the sliding scales, the 5 point Excellent/Very Poor `
`scale. This creates a scale that has 5 options, from Excellent to Very Poor. The grade of `
`the element is based on the choice. In our  example,  each  element  is  worth  20%.            `
`If someone rates my paper as a 3 on the scale, I will get 3/5 (a rating of 3 out of a               `
`possible 5) of 20, or 12 points for this element. We need to fill in the element description `
`in a way that can be answered by the scale  Excellent  to  Very  Poor.  In  our  example,             `
`we will use  Rate the paper on how well it is written.  `
`Element 3 field, we will use the  Score out of 100  scale. This allows the reviewer to  `
`select a score of 0 to 100 for this element. The grade of this element is based on the `
`score given. If I get a score of 75 on the scale, I will get 75/100 credit, or 15 points             `
`(75% of 20 total points). We need to describe the element in a way that can be evaluated `
`on a 100 point scale. For this example, we will use  On a scale of 100, rate how well the          `
`author did research.  `
`Other elements are filled out in a similar `
`way. When we have filled out the other `
`elements, our example looks like Fig. 30. `

`A Workshop is a peer assessment activity with a huge array of options. `
`It allows participants to assess each other s projects, as well as `
`exemplar projects, in a number of ways. It also coordinates the `
`collection and distribution of these assessments in a variety of ways. `
`Workshop module does have a learning curve, however the effort made `
`can include greater student participation.  `
