Hi Henry,

How about adding more space to the comment area when giving Kudoz feedback for low grades? I saw this suggestion in a different forum, just posting it here in case you didn\'t see it.

Cheerio,

Dierk

First of all, Dierk, thanks for suggesting the peer grader comment option. It seems to be adding another dimension to KudoZ.


My intent in making the peer grade comment area so short (60 characters) was

(1) To encourage the crystallization of feedback into the most important point or two

(2) To keep the page compact and easy to read


But a number of people have now suggested increasing the length. So I have doubled it to 120 characters. Lets see how this affects things...

Excellent idea. Perhaps reduces the number of replies which in some cases were just comments anyway.

Henry,

120 characters is an excellent idea. In any case, the idea of feedback itself is a good one. Let\'s see how it shapes up.

Would it be possible to have the name of the peer doing the grading appear automatically?


thanks

That topic is being discussed under the heading:

Peer grading should not be anonymous.
