Using PEERRATE: A Computerized System of Student Term Paper Grading.
Lutkus, Anthony D.
The use of a computerized system is described in which students rate each other's term papers via the computer program PEERRATE, which creates a matrix of intervals between ratings received and calculates final ratings incorporating a mean and standard deviation selected by the instructor for the class. As described, the program includes: (1) compensation for the tendency of students to give high or low grades to everyone; (2) computation of a norm-adjusted score for performance by each student on each assignment; and (3) analysis of both the quality of the ratings by raters for that assignment and the consistency of each student as a rater.
