Grading peer reviews LTI 1.3

If the option Award maximum points on review is not selected in PeerMark assignment creation, instructors can provide a grade within PeerMark.

  1. Select the PeerMark tab and from the dropdown, select PeerMark Reviews.
  2. Locate the row belonging to the student whose review you'd like to grade. Then, select the numbered View submitted reviews badge in the Submitted column to reveal the student's reviews. 
  3. Select the blue checkmark button to open a PeerMark review for grading.
  4. At the top right, enter a grade for the review.


    The Grade field will only display once the due date for the PeerMark assignment has passed. Once it appears, you can set or edit the grade.


    If you have selected the option to Award maximum points on review within the PeerMark assignment settings, then every completed review by a student will be awarded 10 points. A completed review is when all the questions an instructor has added to the review have been answered. Once the due date has passed for the PeerMark assignment, the student’s total grade for the assignment will be available for the instructor to view.

  5. Select Submit to submit your grade.
  6. The assignment grade will update in the Submitted Reviews tab.

    You can edit the grades given to student reviews or to the student’s total score for the assignment once the due date has passed for the assignment.

 

Additional grading information

The total score for all reviews for a reviewer will be normalized to the point value that was selected for the PeerMark assignment during assignment creation. This is true whether the Award full points if review is written option is selected or not.

Example 1 - If Award full points if review is written has NOT been selected

There are a total of three reviews in the review set for the PeerMark assignment and the point value is 100.

  • Review 1 -- The instructor gives the review a 9
  • Review 2 -- The instructor gives the review a 7
  • Review 3 -- The reviewer did not start the review

The total score for all the reviews would be 16 (9+7+0=16) out of the total possible points of 30 (3*10=30). 16 out of 30 = 0.533. Normalizing the 53% to the PeerMark point value of 100 would be: 0.533 * 100 = 53.3, rounded to 53 points out of 100.

Example 2 - If Award full points if review is written HAS been selected

There are five questions to be answered in the review and there are a total of 4 reviews in the review set for the PeerMark assignment. The point value for the PeerMark assignment is 100.

  • Review 1 -- The reviewer entered content for all five questions, but one is considered “unanswered” because it does not meet the minimum length requirement. The score for this review is 0.
  • Review 2 -- The reviewer answered all five questions. The score for this review is 10.
  • Review 3 -- The reviewer did not start the review. The score for this review is 0.
  • Review 4 -- The reviewer started the review but neglected to answer any questions. The score for this review is 0.

The total score for all the reviews would be 10 (0+10+0+0=10) out of the total possible points of 40 (4*10=40). 10 out of 40 = 0.25. Normalizing the 25% to the PeerMark point value of 100 would be: 0.25 * 100 = 25 points out of 100.
