4.23. Workshop

The workshop activity module enables the collection, review, and peer assessment of learners' work.

Learners can submit any digital content (files), such as word-processed documents or spreadsheets, and can also type text directly into a field using the text editor.

Submissions are assessed using a multi-criteria assessment form defined by the instructor. The process of peer assessment and understanding the assessment form can be practiced in advance with example submissions provided by the instructor, together with a reference assessment. Learners are allowed to assess one or more of their peers' submissions. Submissions and reviewers may be anonymous if required.

Learners obtain two grades in a workshop activity - a grade for their submission and a grade for their assessment of their peers' submissions. Both grades are recorded in the gradebook.
