Seeding scripts is a simple benchmarking method and is frequently used to apply grades to a rank order of items produced through Comparative Judgement.
Before starting RM Compare judging the session admin brings together some standardised exemplars for benchmarking purposes. In this case, each piece of work has been assessed and graded by an expert.
The exemplar scripts are added (seeded) into the session along with the other scripts. Judges are unaware if any of the scripts they see are exemplars.
Following the judging, the rank order is produced, including the exemplar scripts.
We are now able to see where the exemplars have been placed, and in turn, can interpret the likely grade for all other scripts on the rank.
