In general, it is recommended that the teacher assesses a fair proportion of the work submitted by the students. The assessments are shown to the students and will provide important feedback on their work. The assessments from the teacher are used in two ways in the workshop module. Firstly, they are used in the calculations to determine the "grading grades", the grades given the student assessments. Secondly they are used in the calculation of the submission grades. These assessments can be given extra weight (the "Weight of Teacher Assessments" option), this weighting effects both the grading grade and the submission grade calculations. If it felt that the student assessments are too high (or too low), increasing this weighting factor should be considered as that will help stablise the grades to a degree. |
