*YOU* are Sepp Blatter
[please note that all references to Mr Blatter are in a light-hearted manner in reference to moderately recent media speculation. In the word of Have I Got News For You: "allegedly"]
When running peer assessment, it's common for the class to give a few "bonus" marks to their friends. I recently got a class to criticise each other's computer presentations and give them each a mark out of five. Of course, I also wanted to ensure that the genuinely best pieces of work bubbled to the top.
Using SurveyMonkey I drafted a quick questionnaire which allowed each pupil to give a mark to everyone else in the class after they'd seen all the presentations. The software collates the results and gives an average for each piece of work. There was no surprise to see that the boys dominated the marks as the class is roughly a 25/75 split favouring the male gender.
So I fudged them. A couple of percentiles here, a swapped digit there, a quick re-sort of the Excel spreadsheet and *voila* the top three made their way to the top of the list. Also, the bottom handful who'd not received very good marks at all found themselves far closer to the rest of the pack, although still in positions justified by their efforts.
In other words - it's my class, they're my rules and I'll adjust them so that the team I want to win gets the prize. I *am* Sepp Blatter (allegedly).
