[[Image:workshop_icon_logo.gif]]'''Workshop''' is a peer assessment activity with many options. Students submit their work via an on line text tool and attachments.

Students submit their own work and then receive a number of submissions from other students which they must assess according to the teacher's specifications.

Workshop is similar to the [[Assignment module]] and extends its functionality in many ways. However, it is recommended that both course facilitator (teacher) and course participants (students) have at least some experience with the Assignment module before the Workshop is used in the course.

* As in the Assignment, course participants submit their work during the Workshop activity. Every course participant submits their own work. The submission may consist of a text and attachments. Therefore, Workshop submission merges both ''Online text'' and ''Upload file'' types of the Assignment module. Support for team work (in the sense of one submission per group of participants) is out of scope of Workshop module.

* [[Workshop FAQ]]
* The submissions are assessed using a structured assessment form defined by the course facilitator (teacher). Workshop supports several types of assessment forms. All of them allows multi-criteria assessment in comparison to the Assignment module where only one grade is given to a submission.
 
* Workshop supports peer assessment process. Course participants may be asked to assess selected set of their peers' submissions. The module coordinates the collection and distribution of these assessments.
 
* Course participants get actually two grades in a single Workshop activity - grade for their submission (that is how good their submitted work is) and grade for assessment (that is how well they assessed their peers). Workshop activity creates two grade items in the course [[Gradebook]] and they can be aggregated there as needed.
 
* The process of peer assessment and understanding the assessment form can be practised in advance on so called example submissions. These examples are provided by the facilitator together with a reference assessment. Workshop participants can assess these examples and compare their assessment with the reference one.
 
* The course facilitator can select some submissions and publish them so they are available to the others at the end of Workshop activity (in comparison to the Assignment module where submitted work is available only to the author and the facilitator).

Workshop is a powerful peer assessment activity. The documentation on Workshop settings explains the different options available.

Students submit their own work and then receive a number of submissions from other students which they must assess according to the teacher's specifications. (They may also assess their own work if the teacher requests this.) Text may be typed directly into Moodle's editor, or files of any type may be uploaded, as long as others have the software to view them. See Using Workshop for details of the phases involved. The teacher can decide whether to show or hide the identities of the students to each other when assessing is taking place.

Two grades are given and appear in the Gradebook: a grade for the student's own submission and a grade for the quality of their peer assessment skills. See Workshop grading strategies for more information.

Workshop is primarily a student-focused activity; however, the teacher may guide the students by providing example submissions for them to try out before assessing their peers and at the end of the workshop the teacher may publish some good (or less good) examples.

For a working example of a workshop activity, see the Celebrating Cultures course in the School Demonstration site. with the username teacher and password moodle.
