I'm currently using the Workshop module to allow students to assess each other's work for a simple assignment, for which the deadline for marking is tomorrow. The students have all been asked to review 5 documents, plus their own, out of 88 students who submitted work.
However four students have been to see me today. Three of them have only been allocated their own work to mark. Another has just been asked to mark one other assignment, plus his own.
I've checked a random sample by logging on as different students and at the moment those are the only four like that I can spot, however there may be more. Is there any reason why this is so, or could it be a bug? Also, is there any easy way to find out which submissions each student has been assigned to review? I have stated in the assignment specification that any student who does not complete all their reviews will not receive any marks. I had thought that this would be as simple as to check that they had all completed six reviews, although with this problem this will not be the case. This is quite a concern, so I'd appreciate any thoughts about what is going on. I asked three of the students when they submitted the work - they all said it was the day before the deadline, which could be coincidence or could mean something? I wonder if it could tally with the time when I moved the assignment from stage 2 to stage 3, say the 30 minute editing period, where some assignments are missed?
One unrelated question for next time I run this assignment - can the anonymous marking process be turned off. I need student to know whose work they are marking, since a proportion of the marks are based around students assessing each others contributions to the forums. At present we've been having problems with students who have not put their name in their submission.
Two other questions that would make administration much easier. Is there an easy way for me to upload a revised version of a student document, (say to add their name), other than hunting through the files to work out which it is and doing a manual replace? Also, is there an easy way to allow a student to edit a review after they have submitted it, or to edit it for them (say when a factual error has been found)?
