All units specify a set of particular ‘learning outcomes’ and ‘assessment criteria’. These define what a student must demonstrate in their work to be awarded credit for the unit. The unit also defines the ‘grade descriptors’ that are to be used in grading the work for that unit. If the work submitted by the student meets the learning outcomes, a certain number of credits and a grade of Pass, Merit or Distinction is awarded for that unit. The set of all grades achieved by a student across the course is known as the ‘grade profile’.
For the computer-delivered test, each essay receives a score from at least one trained rater, using a six-point holistic scale. In holistic scoring, raters are trained to assign scores on the basis of the overall quality of an essay in response to the assigned task. The essay score is then scored by e-rater ® , a computerized program developed by ETS that is capable of identifying essay features related to writing proficiency. If the human and e-rater scores closely agree, the average of the two scores is used as the final score. If they disagree, a second human score is obtained, and the final score is the average of the two human scores.
If you cannot find your question here, and have had a look in the other pages, go to the about contact section and you will find an email address there. Please be aware that I do this in my spare time - I have a dog to walk, a garden to tend to, a house to run, and a husband to feed. I will try to answer your question. Do include as much information as you can, . location, flowers, size, colour. The more information I have, the better I will be able to answer your question. Please do not send me your homework, or ask me to "prepare a five minute talk on an animal of your choice"! However I will try to help with parts of school projects or essays.
