End of project review

This a nice addition to WikiEducator teaching and learning tools.

Some thoughts...

  • title - How to use - just how to add the functionality, not the same as how to use Peer Evaluation in teaching and learning.
  • start with the example and a brief walk-through highlighting the items discussed in detail that follows
  • information is ok
  • code samples are good
  • generally - a little more explanation and/or wordsmithing might be helpful for someone new


rubric functionality

  • needs to include reference to http://wikieducator.org/Extension:PeerEvaluation/RubricFormat - which needs some work, but more helpful
  • very difficult to understand what this is, and what the instructor can / should do
  • suggestions - either hide all the code and just include the whole thing, tell user this is what you get
  • or provide more guidance about constructing the rubric code

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

  • I'll try to add a brief walk-through, perhaps a screencast may be helpful.

rubric functionality

  • I am not sure whether hiding the code would be the write thing to do at this point of time.
  • Rubrics are currently vital to the working of the tool and needs to be specified for every activity.
  • A possible solution to this problem could be to provide some example rubrics which are generic enough for instructors/facilitators to use directly in common types of activities.
  • I am hoping that I can get a interactive rubric generator working soon, which will solve most problems.

Changes to rubric?

What happens if a facilitator modifies a rubric after there have some submissions?

In the current iteration of the tool it is allowed to change the rubric and this displays no errors or warnings. As, currently all of the data is stored as individual evaluations ( as a json ) which also contains the questions from a rubric as we discussed in one of our weekly hangouts , individual evaluation data can be successfully retrieved. Currently, also two separate evaluation tags can be created which reference different rubrics but the same activity, and the viewevaluations tag and the evaluations api will retrieve the data successfully.

Example :

But, in future releases there may be a problem with this approach. Till now we have not figured out the statistics for consolidated marks for the evaluations we obtain. Also, we have not clearly discussed the way to calculate scores. I have a basic version of it that we used in the OCL4Ed prototype but did not add it to the current iteration.

Once, we have scoring and consolidated dashboards there may be limitation of changes to the rubric that would be permitted.
