I am new using Workshop activity Moode. I have tried once and not very happy with the results, manly because I can not understand what type of calculation are made to grade the students work and assessments.
My general question
I tried to find in the web the formula o calculation made by Moodle for final grade, but I could not find it. ¿Can somebody tell me where can I find it?
I chosen a acumulative strategy for grading
- I tried changing the option Weight for Teacher Assessments from 1 to 10,and I found that this is the Weight for Teacher Assessments for grading the assesment of each student, and not for grading the submission.
- I can not understand the effect of the optiiom Comparison of Assessments (lax, fair...). I guess is quite similar to the previous item.
For example. I assessed a submission with 30 points. One student assessed it with 60 and othe student with 30. Using normal option, the first student received an assessment grade of 34/40 and the second 27/40. Using very strict option the first student received an assessment grade of 27/40 and the second 15/30. The second student's assesment is nearer to my evaluation, but received lower grade. Why?
- I found the final grade of a submission is caluclated by the average of the Peer Assessments, but teacher assessment is not included. Is there any way to include the teacher assessment for the submission in the calculation fo the final grade of submission?
