Workshop: a peer review activity

For staff: help pages on the Moodle Workshop activity.

The Workshop activity enables the collection, review and peer assessment of students' work.

Students can submit any digital content (files), e.g. written documents or spreadsheets, or type text directly into a field using the text editor.

Submissions are assessed using a multi-criteria assessment form defined by the teacher. Students can practice the process of peer assessment and become familiar with the assessment form in advance with example submissions provided by the teacher, together with a reference assessment. Students can assess one or more of their peers' submissions. Submissions and reviewers may be anonymous if required. Regardless of the options, teachers retain control at all times.

Students obtain two grades in a Workshop activity:

  • One grade for their submission
  • One grade for their assessment of their peers' submissions.

Both grades are recorded in the Moodle gradebook.
