How Grades Are Computed

We assume here that you have chosen consensus-based grading

Each student is assigned a submission grade, which summarizes the quality of the student's submission, and a review grade, which summarizes the accuracy of the student's reviews.  The submission and review grades are then combined into a single crowd-grade according to percentages specified by the instructor.  The combination of submission and review grades creates an incentive for students to both do their homework well, and be accurate in their grading.

Submission Grade:

Review Grade: The review grade is a measure of how accurate the grades provided by each student are (see here for the details).

Crowd-Grade:  The crowd-grade combines the submission and review grades according to percentages specified by the instructor.  The default is that the submission grade contributes 80% to the crowd-grade, and the review grade contributes 20%. 

Here you can find the details on grade computation, along with examples

What Students See

For each submission, students are shown:

Note that students are not shown the individual grades present in each review.  This reduces student anxiety  if there are occasional errors or outliers in the individual reviews.
