+<P ALIGN=CENTER><B>Include Teacher's Grade</B></P>
+<p>This option allows the teacher's assessments of the submissions to be included
+ as though they were peer assessments. If this option is set to YES then the teacher's
+ assessments are in effect counted twice, firstly as the normal teacher's
+ assessment and secondly by including them in the pool of peer assessments.
+ The teacher might want to do this if (a) the number of peer assessments of
+ each submission is low or (b) to try to stablise the peer assessments when
+ they appear to be either biased or unreliable.</p>

+<P ALIGN=CENTER><B>The League Table of Submissions</B></P>
+<p>The League Table lists the best submissions produced in the assignment. The number
+ of entries can set to Zero, a number between 1 and 20, 50 or &quot;All&quot;. If set to
+ Zero then the League Table is <b>not</b> displayed. If it is set to a number between
+ 1 and 20 or 50 then that number of submissions are shown, for example, setting
+ the number to 10 shows the top ten submissions. Setting the number to
+ &quot;All&quot; gives a table that lists all the submissions.</p>
+<p>The second option contols whether the names of the students are included
+ in the Table or not. This option controls the students' view of the Table, the teacher
+ always sees the names of the students.</p>

+<P ALIGN=CENTER><B>The Over Allocation Level</B></P>
+<p>This level determines whether the allocation of peer assessments to the class
+is balanced or not. Here the term &quot;balanced&quot; applies to the number
+of times each student submission is allocated for (peer) assessment. When the
+Over Allocation Level is set to ZERO, all the submissions are allocated the same
+number of times, that is, the allocation is balanced. When the Level is set to ONE
+then some of the submissions may be alocated once more than other allocations
+(and it follows from this that some of the submissions may be allocated once
+less than other allocations), that is the allocation is unbalanced. Similiarly if the
+Level is set to TWO then a greater unbalance is allowed.</p>
+<p>Ideally all peer assessments should be balanced. However, the disadvantage
+is that some students will not have their full quota of submissions to assess
+until AFTER the last student has submitted their work. When the Over Allocation
+Level is set to ONE, then most students will find that they have their full
+&quot;quota&quot; of submissions to assess and they do <b>not</b> have to
+wait for late submissions. Waiting for late submissions should be even rarer
+when the level is set to TWO.</p>
+<p>So in a Workshop assignment where the number of peer assessments is
+set to 5, if there are no problems if some of the submissions will be (peer)
+assessed 4 times, some 5 times and others 6 times, then the assignment
+will &quot;flow&quot; smoother and the the students will not have to wait so
+long (if at all) for others to submit work if the Over Allocation Level is
+changed from its default value of ZERO and set to ONE.</p>
