I need a Moodle plugin to be written to add a specific grading method for workshops assessments (not the workshop activity, the assessment by other students of the workshop activity). The grading method will have the following functionality :
1) Have the option for the teacher to choose the weight of the grade depending on the following two variables :
1- Number of words left in the comment (compared against the teacher required word length) IE... student left 10 words, teacher requires 20 words, student receives 50% mark for their assessment.
2- Closeness to the average grade given by all other assessors.
3- Length of time they had spent reading the assigned paper in order to make sure they carefully read the other students paper (if possible... we don't know if this one is doable)
Since the teacher can input these variables and the weights they carry towards the final assessment grade, it will make it easy for us to disable specific portions for different workshops.
Please respond with a couple words describing what Moodle is to prove you know the platform and read this description.
