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.
- Writing Grade: This is the grade received on your submission. Feedback from your instructor and the ratings from your peers are used to create 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 back-evaluations 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 Back-Evaluation Task Grade are weighted equally.
When you look at your assignment grade, you will see a chart like this.
The top row, Grade Detail, shows your score out of 100 for each category. The second row, Weight, lists the weight that your instructor set for each component of the overall grade. Below the percentages are your weighted score for each component.
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 back-evaluation deadline.
