Grading Wikipedia assignments can be a challenge. Depending on the complexity of your assignment designing a grading rubric for it may be easy or challenging.
Three key tips that will help you when you grade Wikipedia assignments:
- 1. Know all the students' usernames on Wikipedia
- Without knowing the students' usernames on Wikipedia, you won't be able to grade them.
- Create a page for the course on Wikipedia in the beginning of the semester. Then create a participants list and make it mandatory for the students to add their usernames to that list.
- Once all students have signed the list, you can come back later and click on "user contributions" (in the menu bar on the left hand side of your browser screen) to review all of the student's activities on Wikipedia
