Limit

The limit is used to highlight groups where there is disagreement between members with the scores allocated to individuals. The deeper the yellow highlighting the greater the disagreement.

The default limit is 15% i.e. groups with Ratios of more than 1.15 and less than 0.85. (Refer below for how Ratios are calculated)

Limit

Example

With the Likert option used with a small scale (i.e. 5 points) most scores of the may be highlighted. In this example to Limit was changed to 30% to highlight the main disagreement in scores.

In the selected group there is disagreement with

1.    The score assigned to Chet from Erin (5), to Afia by Helen (5) and Helen by Afia (5) were highlighted as they were higher than all the other scores assigned to them (3 or 4).

2.    Jana also as a wider range of scores assigned to her 3 or 5.

Moderate results

All results should be moderated before being used for summative assessment.

Results could be check by:

  • Check the comments justify the scores given.
  • Checking if there is common themes with comments from different group members.
  • Feedback from the group’s tutor.
  • Meeting with the group or individual group member to discuss the contribution of different group members to the group assignment.

Scores that are not justified can be removed and the Average Score will be recalculated.

Refer below for how Averages and Ratios are calculated.

Recommendation: It is recommended during the moderation process that all student results are checked.

Tip: The use yellow highlights (based on the Limit) to identify groups where there is disagreement between members with the scores allocated to individuals. You can increase the limit to focus on groups with the most disagreement.

Warning: It is important that you can justify Likert scores if they are contested.

Average Score

The average is calculated to represent an individual student’s contribution to a group assignment. It is the average of all scores awarded from all group members for all criteria. i.e. If the Likert scale is 7 the Average will be out of 7.

Example Average Score calculation

In the below example group members rate the other group members on one criteria out of 5.

Janya’s Average Score = (5 + 5 +3 + 3) /4 = 4

Average score example

Individual v Average ratio

All individual scores assigned to a student are also compared those assigned by the rest of the group.

individual v averge ratio

 

Ratio calculation

1.Total score assigned to student B by student A.

2.Total scores other students besides student A allocated the student B / number of other group members.

3.Divide 1 by 2.

Example Ratio calculation

The score received by Chet Lee (5) from Erin Murphy does not agree with scores assigned to her by other group members. i.e. Individual v Average ratio of 1.50

Ratio calculation

= Score from Erin divided by the average score from Janya, Alfia and Helen

= 5 divided by (4 + 3 + 3) / 3

= 5 divided by 3.33

= 1.50
