Moodle Workshop module at iMoot 2010


has to submit their work


body, embedded pictures


is asked to assess some peers' work

using the assessment form

can be asked to assess own work

can be asked to train the assessment procedure on so called example submissions

example submissions provided by teacher

reference assessment available for comparison, reference assessment prepared by teacher in advance

helps to get the common understanding of the assessment form, requirments, levels etc.

can be mandatory, either before own submission, or after it but before peer-assessment


prepares the workshop assignment

chooses the grading strategy



number of errors


defines the assessment form

depends on the strategy

consists of so called "dimensions of assessments", elements, criteria, items of rubric

controls the workflow

distinct phases, submission phase, students submit their work, assessment phase, students assess their peers, grading evaluation phase, the grades are calculated, workshop closed phase, the grades are pushed into the course gradebook

allocates submissions for peer-assessment

randomly, respects group mode of the activity, no groups, every peer can become reviewer of the work, visible groups, reviewers are chosen from all groups in a balanced way, separate groups, reviewers are chosen only from the author's group(s), using either, the fixed number of reviewers per submission, the fixed number of allocated assessments per peer

manually, teacher decides who will assess what, new in 2.0

in a combined way

every assessment can have different weight, this is new - in 1.x, only teacher's assessments can have different weight

controls the final grades

can override the calculated ones

works with grades internally in workshop before they are pushed into gradebook


upgrade from 1.9

if you do not use workshop now, it is recommended to remove the whole module before upgrade

migration procedure

backwards compatibility issues, phases can't overlap, phases must be switched manually, optional adjustment not used any more, negative weight of assessment form elements not supported any more, the grading grade calculation changed, may be still difficult to explain but is explicitly defined in a formula, no assessments are dropped automatically, but can be weighted as zero



grading strategies, how the assessment form looks like, how the grade for submission is calculated

grading evaluators, how the grading grade is calculated

allocators, how submissions are allocated for peer-assessment


assignment-like activity

students submit their work


students assess their peers

advanced grading scheme

assessment forms, criteria, rubric

grades calculation

two grades

grade for submission, how good the submission is, weighted mean of received assessments

grade for assessment (grading grade), how well a student assessed her/his peers

both are calculated automatically, but can be overridden by the teacher

modular architecture

other types of assessment forms (grading strategies) can be plugged-in

other methods of grading grade calculation can be plugged-in


What is workshop

how would such activity look in a physical classroom
