We successfully used Workshop in our large course last quarter, but we're experiencing something new this quarter.
When we allocate the assessments, we set it so that we assign 6 assessments to every reviewer. We don't allow non-submitters to do assessments.
Last quarter every time I did this it worked out evenly, so that everyone both gave and received 6 assessments. This time, it keeps coming out skewed, so some texts are given 5 assessments and others are given 7. It is correctly allocating 6 assessments per reviewer (which is more critical for us, and I guess means it is working technically) but I don't understand why it wouldn't just assign them evenly to the texts as well.
I can manually go through and fix it by moving a few of the reviews around after doing the random allocation, but it's strange to me that we didn't experience this at all last quarter and suddenly it's an issue every time I do the allocations.
Any ideas? Is this just expected and I got lucky last quarter?
