This article is intended to provide a brief overview of the student results dashboard and student grades.
To access your Peerceptiv assignment results, click into your assignment dashboard and click either “View Grades” or “Results.”
You’ll be taken to your results dashboard. Your grades for the assignment are displayed in the top center card. Your overall grade is listed, and it is broken down into four components: submission, accuracy, helpfulness, and task.
There are four components that can make up the Overall grade awarded on a Peerceptiv assignment. Your assignment may have all four of these components, or it may have less, depending on how your assignment was set up.
- Submission Grade: This is the grade received on your submission. Ratings from your instructor and peers are used to generate this grade.
- Accuracy Grade: This grade measures the quality of your ratings on peer submissions. A very simple explanation of accuracy is that it measures how closely your ratings track with peer and instructor ratings on the same document, but it is more complex than that. The algorithm also looks at how you ranked the submissions you reviewed from high to low and whether that ranking corresponds with other data collected. If you have a very low accuracy score, it is usually because you did not pay careful attention to rating submissions or you gave everything that you rated the same score on all rating prompts.
- Helpfulness Grade: This grade measures the quality of your comments on peer submissions. Helpfulness is calculated based on the feedback ratings your comments received from your peers. Students with high accuracy and helpfulness grades spend careful attention rating and providing thoughtful comments.
- Task Grade: The Task Grade is a simple measure of whether you did all the required tasks in the assignment. If you completed all the tasks, you receive 100% of the task grade.
These scores are combined to produce the overall grade. However, the overall grade is not a simple average of these scores, they are weighted according to settings chosen by your instructor. For example, the default Peerceptiv assignment has a submission grade that is worth 40% of the overall grade, the accuracy grade is worth 20%, the helpfulness grade is worth 20%, and the task grade is worth 20%. Your assignment grades may be weighted differently. You can click the box in the grade card to Show Grade Weight Calculations to see how your grades are combined to produce the overall grade according to the weights your instructor has set up. Multiply each grade by the decimal point and then add them all together to produce the overall grade.
If you are using Peerceptiv through an LMS or course website, such as Canvas, your overall grade will be sent to your grade book as a percentage score and may be converted to a point value. 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.
For more information about your results, please refer to your rubric scores section which details the average score you received on each of the rating prompts in the rubric. Your submission grade is calculated based on these rating scores, your instructor’s input, and the accuracy of the people who reviewed your submission. Click on “More” to see the description of the rating level that your average scores align with most closely.
Your scores on the rubric scores section may trigger specific resources to be sent to your results dashboard. These resources were added by your instructor and are individualized to you and specifically intended to help you improve your work.
Finally, you can also see all of the comments that your work received from peers and/or instructors in the “Peer Comments” section. You can filter these comments by the rubric comment prompt.
