Workshop 2.0


Techer decides on grading strategy

No grades, just comments, Several evaluation aspects, each is commented without giving a grade

Error banded, List of aspects that should be present in the submission

Accumulative grading, Replace wording with "Several aspects, each with its own scale"

Criterion grading


Stephan's suggestion, no grading, just written feedback, Criterion with Scale, Criterion with a point scale from 1 to n with n being sent to grade book, teacher to decide on, number of criteria, n, Criterion - Level Description, Criterion with n descriptions of level (in order from worst to best). n should also result in n points being sent to grade book, teacher to decide on, number of criteria, n, level descriptions, David's comments, both Criterion with Scale and Criterion LD are covered by the Criterion rubrics - see the spec, Stephan can you see a case where your types can't be achieved with the one strategy proposed in the specification?, No, what you have written is coerving everything of the above!, excellent!

Teacher uploads sample work and grades it


Students submit their work

attached files

and comment via HTML editor

Teachers assess students' submissions

weighting of teacher assessment in relation to peer-assessment needs to be chosen by teacher

Students can perform self-assessment

weighting of self assessment is the same as that of peers

Peers assess submissions of others


or with user known

option:, grader and gradee need to agree on grade

Final grade for each student is calculated from

Grade for submission, self-assessment, given by teacher, given by peers, aggregations?, depends on weightings entered by teacher

Grade for peer assessments, weighted average, bias and reliability, what is the difference?, make the calculation a little bit mysterious and not very clear for students, replace with "Required level of assessments similarity", Very low, Normal, Low, High, Very high

students grade sample work and get feedback

regarding difference between their grading and sample grading

if automatic this could be deviation from teacher expressed in point-difference

Pedagogical use cases

Simple assignment with advanced grading strategy

Students submit just one file as they do in Assignment module

No peer grading

Several dimensions (criterions) of the assessment, wighted mean aggregation, if only one dimension is used, the Workshop behaves like an ordinary Assignment

Presentations and performance

Students submits their slides and give a presentation in class

Peer feedback on submitted materials and live presentation

Randomly assigning assessments, Motivation to pay attention and take good notes

Peer Assessment gives opportunity to

see other work and learn from it

formulate quality feedback, which will enhance learning

learn from feedback of more than one person (i.e. the teacher)

Activity focused on work quality

no grading, just comments from teacher and peers

resubmissions allowed

manually switching between submission phase, assessment phase, (re)submission phase, (re)assessment phase etc as needed

Backward compatibility issues

Phase "Allow both students submissions and assessments" not supported anymore

problem described in the Chapter 6 of Using Moodle, p.105 (follow the link)

no strong pedagogical use case supporting this phase found yet

this makes the magical setting "Overall allocation" obsolete because nobody can start assessing before the end of submission phase

Project goal

Have the Workshop module in Moodle 2.0



File API

Portfolio API


keep the forms as simple as possible

heavily using "Advanced field" feature and default values

Logical groups of fields in mod_form.php

Move phase-specific settings out of mod_form.php to other forms


Workshop phases

List of phases, Teacher sets up the workshop, Students assess the examples provided by teacher, Students upload their own submissions, Students assess the submissions of their peers, Final grades are calculated and sent to the course Gradebook

Both manual and automatic (by-date) moving from phase to phase, allow manual switching anytime, allow returning to a previous phase (eg. from assessments back to submissions) - manual only

Phases do not overlap, see the backward compatibility issue
