The Games We Play

Grades as Information: Feedback, Patterns, & Transparency

Posted on: August 16, 2009


gradesLast week in class we evaluated the nudge assignments along 14 different criteria in four themes (concept, design, documentation, and presentation).  The scale ranged from 1-5.  Evaluations were conducted for each person presenting by each of the others in the class.  The scores for each of the 14 criteria were averaged for each theme to create a “theme score” that could be visualized for each person who provided it as well as for its recipient.

We will look at the graphs for each theme in class.  In the meantime, here are two examples showing 1) the range of scores generated by the evaluations, and 2) the scores in close proximity to those who received them.

You can see the visualizations here:

Concept

Design

Documentation

Presentation

Graph of scores sent by evaluators to recipients.  The size of the circles without numbers represents the value of that score.  Circles of the same color originate from the same evaluator.

This graph shows scores in close proximity to their recipients.  The colors of the non-numbered circles indicate the source of the evaluation.  The sizes are the average values of those scores for the theme (in this case "presentation").
