There are three components that make up the Overall grade awarded on a Peerceptiv assignment. You’ll see the Overall Grade for each assignment on the Grades page as well as all 3 components of the grade.
- Submission Grade: This is the grade received on your submission. Ratings from your instructor and peers are used to generate this grade.
- Reviewing Grade: The Reviewing Grade measures the quality of your rating and comments on peer documents. This grade is made of 2 components: the Accuracy and Helpfulness grades. Helpfulness Grades are calculated based on the feedback ratings you receive from your peers. Accuracy Grades measure how closely your ratings track with peer ratings on the same document.
- Task Grade: Task Grades are a simple measure of whether you did all the required tasks in the assignment. If you performed all the tasks, you receive 100% of the task grade. The Reviewing Task Grade and Feedback Task Grade are weighted equally.
When you look at your assignment grade, you will see a chart like this.
The top rows display the Submission Grade, Review Grade, and Task Grade, along with any late penalties. These scores are out of 100%, as is the Overall Grade. You can find out the weighting for each part of the grade in the assignment settings.
The Overall Grade is on the bottom row of the chart. This grade is listed in Peerceptiv as a percentage; you may see the equivalent point total appear in your course grade book. For example, if the student above received an overall grade of 91 on this assignment but the assignment was worth 50 points, the instructor would record the grade as 46/50 (rounded up from 45.5), which is the rounded equivalent of 91%.
Sometimes, your instructor will hold grades for manual release, so please check in with your instructor if you do not see grades posted after the Feedback deadline.
