1. What is a Calibration Activity?

A Calibration Activity is a way for your professor to see how strong of an evaluator you are by comparing your evaluations to their own. The activity does not count for marks and is strictly done to calibrate your grading power and improve your grading accuracy.

2. How Does it Work?

The students' grading powers are calibrated through the calibration feature. A professor will review and evaluate three creations of a previously finalized activity. Students will then evaluate the same three creations and have their evaluations provided for those creations compared with the evaluations provided by the professor.

Through the calibration activity, only the students' grading power may change depending on how close the grades they gave are to the professor's grade. This will be reflected in the number of stars students have on their icons.

3. Completing Calibration Activities

Unlike normal activities, a Calibration Activity only has the evaluation stage. You will be asked to evaluate three creations selected by your professor. A Calibration Activity is indicated by this icon on the Activity Card.

The evaluations that you complete for a Calibration Activity do not require a written comment like with normal activities. This is because the Calibration Activity is solely meant to adjust your grading power to ensure that it reflects your skills as an evaluator.

Once all students have completed the evaluations, your professor will finalize the activity, and Kritik will compare all student evaluations with the professors and adjust grading powers accordingly. You will see a Calibration Report after the activity has finalized indicating how your grading power changed.
