Understand the Grade Display

Each student will receive two (2) grades. The first one is an average of all the assessment marks for their submission. The second one is for how well they assessed their peers.

  • The grade for the individual’s assessment comes first.

  • The grade for how well they assessed others is contained in parentheses ( ).

  • The < tells you who assessed the submission.

  • The > tells you who submitted the assignment.

  • A score that has green and is underlined 95 (- / 90) has been overridden by the instructor.

  • The @ tells you the assessment has been weighted.
