Yes. Our assignment design tool will provide you with a customizable grading rubric for your Wikipedia assignment. You will be able to assign different percentages to each part of the Wikipedia assignment. You do not need to use our grading rubric. To remove the grading rubric, edit your timeline and uncheck the grading checkbox associated with each block. Click save when you're done.

For general information and tips for grading and assessment, check out the following:

The Wiki Education Dashboard does not provide a built in grading system, so you cannot enter grades directly into the Dashboard. However, you can mark individual assignment modules as either graded or ungraded using the check box within the “Edit” function. Checking a module as “graded” includes it in the list of the graded assignments at the end of the page, which your students can see and use to help guide them as they allocate time for the assignment. You can adjust the points awarded to each graded assignment at the bottom of your timeline.

Exactly how you assess and grade these assignments is up to you. Below please find a few of the assignments that are most important for grading, and some tips for checking the completion of the work by the student.

Get started on Wikipedia:

Things you can track: did the student create their account, are they enrolled in the course page, and did they complete all the assigned training modules? You can view all the students enrolled in your course by visiting the Students tab on your course page. You’ll also be able to see how many of the assigned training modules your students have completed at any given time (see below for example). (Tip: you can re-title any module on the timeline to suit your grading needs.)

Evaluate Wikipedia

Things you can track: did the student evaluate the assigned article(s) or pick an appropriate one for evaluation. Can be graded by having students create a section in their sandbox space on Wikipedia OR another preferred off-wiki method. The benefit of the Sandbox is it gets the student comfortable with the Wikipedia formatting. If you make this project due on Wikipedia, you can view your students' recent edits under the Students tab on your timeline.

One method for evaluating completion is as follows: the day after the assignment is due head to the Students tab and drop down each individual students’ recent contributions (see example below). You should be able to see the date and time stamp of the training completions and below that, the students' recent Sandbox or mainspace edits. Just click “+/-” to see a summary of each contribution. (Tip: you can adjust the text within the module to reflect exactly how or when you want this assignment turned in. For example: “Please turn in a 1-page reflection to the TA on Thursday” or “Please create a section in your Sandbox space on Wikipedia where you leave your notes and review”).
