Your instructor may schedule a calibration activity to align student grading power based on how closely students grade creations to how the instructor grades creations.

How Calibration Works

  • Your instructor will select 3 creations and grade them using the selected rubric.

  • Students will then grade the same 3 creations using the same rubric.

TIP: Make sure you read the rubric carefully when grading the 3 creations. Following the rubric closely will help you score the creations as accurately as possible.

  • Students' grading powers are then calibrated through Kritik’s algorithms on the backend. The closer a student grades to how the instructor grades, the higher that student's grading power will be.

    • The new grading power allocated to each student will apply to any future Kritik activities.

    • Grading power will be adjusted as soon as the Calibration Activity is marked as complete.

NOTE: In a calibration activity, there is only the evaluation stage. Students are only required to grade the three creations.‍ No written evaluations are required.
