Group exams are designed to be incorporated into all flow types. WISEflow has two types of groups:
- Group paper: each group hands in one paper. Each participant in the group can turn in the final paper for the group.
- Individual paper: each participant has to upload an individual paper as part of the group.
Assessors can access information on the groups of a flow through the participant list. Group exam flows will have an extra column defining the group number for each participant. This number is not equal to the group name (defined by the administrator or by participants, if they can create their own groups), which can be seen in the top right corner of the assessor tool.
Participant list: Group number
Assessor tool: group name
In the assessor tool, you access the groups by pressing the flow name in the top menu.
Note: participants of the group are displayed below the group name. Instead of choosing individual participants you read and assess groups jointly. Assess as normal.
In the assessor tool, you access the participants by pressing the flow name in the top menu. Note: the group number and name are displayed below the group name. Like in a non-group exam flow, you read and assess each participant individually.
Papers in "individual paper"-flows can be assessed for text similarity differently, even though they are the same, depending on the different times the papers were handed in. In these flows, it is especially important to use the individual text similarity reports to determine whether the system has found "legal" or "illegal" text similarity in the assignment.
The report is accessed by pressing the text similarity result (in percent) in the similarity report column.
For URKUND, this is made easy, as you can exclude sources, which URKUND uses to compare the paper with. This is done by removing the tick in the tick box to the right of each source in the top right corner of the screen.
