Currently, most students get peer evaluation within a day on the official Intro to JS projects. This applies to “What’s for Dinner?” and “Ad Design”, which make up the bulk of the delivered projects. Many students also receive speedy feedback on the more advanced projects because they have their own coach or friends to swap evaluations with.
For the less well connected students the situation can be very different. In order to reduce the maximum wait time from 3 weeks to 2 weeks, between Feb. 28th and March 22nd the project queue was reduced from 6665 to 3105 projects. In other words, the evaluators had to take care of about 3560 more evaluations than were delivered - about 257 hours of extra work. Obviously this reduction is the work of many students, teachers, parents and other volunteers. We’d like to thank all the people who have helped reduce the evaluation queue lately by doing more evaluations than they have received!
At the same time we’d like to give particular thanks to a crew of students who came together to do evaluations, learn more about delivering high quality feedback and and identify problem behavior in the evaluation queue, under the guidance of Doing Great Project Evaluations Spring 2020.
Evaluations performed by all DGPE students and leaders during those 23 days: 1352
Plagiarized projects identified: 404
Inappropriate projects identified: 14
Incorrectly passed projects reported: 85 which lead to Guardian intervention
Incorrectly failed projects reported: 32 which led to PI’s and DGPE leaders reaching out with information
You’ve all helped towards a proper spring cleaning!
Thanks from DGPE,
Chris Rennick, Evan Lewis, Inger Hohler, and Janice Holz
