Help for Instructors


Getting Started


  1. Create a course
    Go to the ‘Courses’ page and create a course.
    Some of the elements in the user interface (e.g., text boxes) have hover over tips to tell you what the element does.

    Time zone is auto-detected based on your device settings.

    Adding more instructors
    More instructors (e.g. tutors) can be added to a course by going to the ‘edit’ link of the course.
    Note that you can set the access control levels for these instructors.

  2. Enroll students
    Enroll students by doing one of the following options:
    • Go to the ‘Home’ page, click on the ‘Students‘ button on the corresponding course, and choose ‘Enroll’
    • Go to the ‘Courses’ page and click the ‘Enroll‘ button of the corresponding course


  3. Create a session
    Go to the ‘Sessions’ page and create a session (there are different session types to choose from).

    Create new

    Or:


    Please answer all the given questions.

    Session is visible at submission opening time, responses are only visible when you publish the results. [Change]
    Emails are sent when session opens (within 15 mins), 24 hrs before session closes and when results are published. [Change]

    • Session with your own questions
      • Creates an empty feedback session
      • Allows you to craft custom questions that fit your needs
    • Team peer evaluation session
      • Provides 5 standard questions for team peer evaluations
      • Allows you to modify/remove the given questions and add your own questions as required

    • You can set custom feedback paths for each question:
      i.e. specify who is giving feedback to whom. e.g. the question 'What is the estimated contribution of team member?' can be set the following feedback path:
      Feedback giver: students in the course
      Feedback recipient: giver's team members

    • You can set the visibility options for each question:
      Allows you to set who can see the answers, giver name and recipient name for each question.

      See here for more info about session types.

  4. When sessions open
    When it is time to open the session (based on the ‘opening time’ you specified), TEAMMATES automatically emails students instructions for accessing the session. A copy of that email will be sent to you as well.

    If you would like students to access TEAMMATES sooner (e.g. you would like them to fill in their profile page in advance), you can go to the 'View' link of the course and click the 'Remind Students to Join' button, which will send them 'access instructions' immediately.

  5. While the session is open
    You can view responses any time after the session is open, even when the session is still ongoing. Just go to the ‘Sessions’ page and click the corresponding ‘View results/responses’ link. Session Types section has more information about the reports available for different session types.

    Students will be sent a reminder 24 hours before the closing time of a session. In addition, you can send further reminders to students any time while a session is open using the ‘remind’ link.

  6. After the session is closed
    You can publish results (i.e. make it visible to students) using the ‘publish’ link in the ‘Sessions’ page.

    Results of sessions can be downloaded in spreadsheet format.

  7. Any time
    You can use the ‘Students’ page any time to do these things:
    • Email a group of students: Filter out students in certain teams/courses and email them. Also handy for locating the email of any past student.
    • Comment on students: Add a comments about any student. Handy for saving and retrieving comments about a student quickly. You can make these comments visible to others or keep them private.
    • View profile and all past records of a student : View profile of a student and see in one place all submissions given/received by a student. Handy for examining how a student progressed through a course. (Students > All Records)
    • View all comments: View all comments from one page.
    • Search: Search for students, teams, sections.
    • Archive old courses: Archive old courses that you no longer need actively.

Tips for conducting 'team peer evaluation' sessions


Any evaluation system has both positive and negative effects on those being evaluated. As teachers, you are probably keen to maximize the positive effect of this system on your course while minimizing any negative effects. Here are some of the things you could do:



  • Have frequent peer evaluations.
    Rather than have only one peer evaluation at the end of the course, have several peer evaluations at different points of the course. This way, students get frequent peer-feedback about their contribution, giving them plenty of chances to correct their conduct as necessary.

  • Ignore early peer evaluations.
    Consider not using initial peer evaluations for grading. Let students know that in advance. This gives students time to get used to the system and be more relaxed in giving early feedback to peers.

  • Interpret contribution numbers with care.
    If you use ‘Team contribution’ type questions in your peer evaluations, keep in mind the contribution numbers reported by TEAMMATES are based on student perceptions and may not reflect the real contribution of a student. Therefore, use those numbers primarily to identify cases that need further investigation.
    You may ignore minor variations in the contribution numbers reported by TEAMMATES. The difference between [Equal share] and [Equal share - 2%] is not significant and can very well be due to rounding off within the system.
    Keep in mind that it is human nature for one to downplay the value of contributions from others when one’s own contribution is being compared to that of others. As a result, it is common for the ‘perceived contribution’ to be somewhat lower than what the student actually did.
    When taking further actions based on evaluation reports, also pay attention to the team’s consensus level about the contribution of a student. For example, you can take further actions with more confidence if all team members rated a certain student’s contribution low.

  • Tolerate unequal contributions.
    This may be a good policy to adopt (If students know this policy, they will be more honest in reporting contribution values):

    It is OK to do less than an equal share of the work, as long as you are willing to accept a lower grade than your team members. It is your right to decide how much time you allocate to this course. How you prioritize your work is your own business.

  • Announce a 'cooling off' period.
    This may be a good guidelines to give to students:

    If you are unhappy about the peer-feedback received, please allow at least one day to lapse before you fire off a response email. You are likely to respond more rationally when you had some time to think it over. Also keep in mind that we do take note of how well you handle such a situation. You need to act professionally when facing conflicting views, opposition, and even deliberate sabotage.

    2. Select a Course ID for which the session will be created
    3. Give it a nice Session name
    4. Select the Submission opening/closing time
      • This is the time period where a student can submit responses.
    5. Click Create Feedback Session!


    Next step: Setting up questions

    Advanced options:

    • Copy from previous feedback sessions
      • Copy from previously created feedback sessions to save time creating the same questions!
    • Time zone
      • This is auto-detected from your computer and you should not need to change it.
    • Instructions
      • Give more specific instructions to students
    • Grace period
      • A small amount of time where students can still submit responses if the session closes while they are completing the session.
    • Session visible from
      • When the students can see the questions (but cannot submit, until the session is open)
      • Note the options for making the session private (for you to record your feedback about students, only you can see the session)
    • Responses visible from
      • When the students can see results and responses from others.
      • Note the option for publishing the responses automatically at a given time.
    • Send emails for
      • When emails are sent to students
    • Private session
      • A private session is a session that is never visible to others. This is for you to record your feedback about students, only you can see this session. If you want to create a private session then set the "Session visible from" to Never.


    This is the form used to set up sessions.

    Create new

    Or:









  2. 2. Setting up questions

    After setting up a session, you will be brought to the session edit page to setup the questions. (You can also get here by clicking the edit button action for a particular session)

    Depending on the session type that you selected, you might already see some questions.


    At the bottom of the page, you can add questions to the session:

    You can also Copy Question from existing feedback sessions and reuse the questions and their options to quickly set up the session.


    Click Done Editing when you are finished with setting up all questions to return to the home page.



    Here, we set up a particular question after adding it to the session.
    The following can be set:

    • Question text - the question
    • - you can select a common feedback path from the dropdown menu, or choose "Other predefined combinations..." to select the Feedback Giver and Recipient separately.
      • Feedback Giver - who gives the response (If you choose a ‘team’ as the giver, any member can submit the response on behalf of the team.)
      • Feedback Recipient - who the response is meant for/directed towards
    • Visibility options - you can select a common visibility option from the dropdown menu, or choose "Custom visibility options..." to fully customize who can see the feedback response, the giver's identity, and the recipient's identity


    Given the example below, note how we can set the feedback path and visibility level for each question.
    For the feedback path, "Other predefined combinations..." has been selected and further configured to be for instructors (i.e. you, tutors, co-lecturers) to give feedback to the class in general.
    As for visibility options, only the instructors can see all the feedback responses as well as who gave feedback to whom.

    Question   Essay question Cancel



    Visibility (Who can see the responses?)
    This is the visibility hint as seen by the feedback giver:
    • The receiving student can see your response, but not your name.
    • Instructors in this course can see your response, the name of the recipient, and your name.

    Remember to Save Changes to the question after editing!

    When the session is open, an instructor can answer the above question. This is how it will look like:

    Question 1:
    Tutor's comments about the team presentation

    Only the following persons can see your responses:

    • The receiving teams can see your response, but not your name.
    • Instructors in this course can see your response, the name of the recipient, and your name.


    Response length: 0 words


    Response length: 0 words



    Here is another example question:

    Question   Multiple-choice (single answer) Cancel



    add more options



    Visibility (Who can see the responses?)
    This is the visibility hint as seen by the feedback giver:
    • You can see your own feedback in the results page later on.
    • Instructors in this course can see your response, the name of the recipient, and your name.
    This question is for students to give feedback to their own team members. The feedback receiver can see the feedback, but not who gave the feedback. Instructors can see who received what feedback, but not who gave the feedback.

    As you can see, these session are very flexible and can cater for a wide variety of feedback scenarios, all within a single session.



  3. 3. Previewing a session

    To see how the session looks like to anyone in the course, we can use the Preview as feature to take a look at how the current session would look like to any student or instructor when they are submitting responses.

    This allows easy and convenient confirmation that the questions and their settings are correct.



  4. 4. Viewing results

    You can view results of sessions by clicking the View Results action of a session
    You can see responses in several different formats using the following controls.

    There are 5 different views available, which indicate the order in which responses are grouped. Additionally, there are also options to group the results by team and show/hide statistics (available in some views), as well as options to view responses from a particular section.
    We can also filter results on the page using the filter function.

    An example is given below:

    Multiple-choice (multiple answers) question

    Multiple-choice (multiple answers) question are similar to the single answer version, except that students are able to select multiple options as their response.

    The setup and result statistics is similar to the single answer version. See above for details.

    Numerical scale question

    Numerical scale questions are questions that allow numerical responses from students.
    To set up the question, provide the question text as well as the minimum, maximum values the student can input, as well as the increment, or precision of the number that is required.
    If this sounds confusing, you can fiddle with the numbers and see what the acceptable responses are.

    Distribute points (among options) question

    Distribute points (among options) question allows you to specify some options, and allow the student to split some points among these options.
    To setup the question, specify the options as well as the number of points to split among the options.

    You can also specify Points to distribute X number of options, which multiplies the points specified by the number of options.
    For example, if there are 5 options and Points to distribute X number of options is set to 100, students will have to split 500 points in total to the 5 options.

    Team contribution question

    Team contribution questions are a specialized question type designed for team contribution evaluations.
    They allow estimation of perceived contribution of a student and prevents a student from inflating his own score. To see more details about the calculation of results and other common questions, see the FAQ here.

    An alternative to this specialized calculation scheme is to use the Distribute Points (among recipients) question, which provides a simple average calculation scheme.

    To setup the question, simply give some question text. The giver and recipient is fixed for this special question type.

    To setup the question, enter the main question text, and add the options for the students to rank. You can configure if students can give the same rank multiple times.

    Visibility (Who can see the responses?)
    This is the visibility hint as seen by the feedback giver:
    • Instructors in this course can see your response, the name of the recipient, and your name.

    Rank Recipients question

    Rank recipients questions are questions where the students are to rank students, teams, or instructors.

    The options to rank are determined by the feedback path selected for the question. You can configure if students can give the same rank multiple times.

    (Who is giving feedback about whom?)

    Visibility (Who can see the responses?)
    This is the visibility hint as seen by the feedback giver:
    • Instructors in this course can see your response, and your name.

    The statistics for both rank questions show the average rank an option/recipient received. Ties are handled during the computation of statistics. If duplicate ranks are allowed to be given, ties are resolved by assigning the best rank to the occurences of tied values. For example, for the data {1, 3, 3, 4}, the ranks will be converted to {1, 2, 2, 4}.

    Response Summary
    Team Recipient Ranks Received Average Rank
    - Team 1 1 , 1 , 2 1.33
    - Team 2 1 , 2 1.5
    - Team 3 1 , 2 1.5
