I agree (@Monica), it is odd that so many people would agree in a complex task. Take the reliability report for “Technical Description.” This was a learning goal with four levels of attainment. For one student, all raters agree that the goal has been attained. This is remarkable in itself, in that the student must be very proficient in this area.

I stop before saying, however, that the criteria for attainment of this learning goal must be well-defined, since looking at the other student’s report we see wide disparity between raters. What does this disparity mean in this case? It seems there was confusion in discerning which words constituted a 0, 1, or 2 according to the comments. How do we interpret this student’s attainment of the learning goals, especially in light of the other student’s unanimous attainment?
