Electronic Grading & Moderation by NUI Galway

Electronic Grading & Moderation by NUI Galway

Each participant choosing to formally accredit for the Foundation Certificate in Youth Leadership and Community Action must have an assigned Mentor. Ideally the mentor will be the facilitator of Module 1 & 2 if possible. This mentor will provide guidance and support to the participant during their module 3 project. The mentor must also grade the participants project work. 

Participants are encouraged to contact their Facilitator/Mentor if they have any questions, or contact leadership@foroige.ie if they need further support.

What follows is a brief outline of the process for Facilitators.Mentors. More detailed information will be sent via email at certain points in the process.

Step 1: Grading

17th May: Module 1 & 2 Deadline      *       21st June: Module 3 Deadline

Here is a full list of important dates 

  • Module 1 & 2 Grades are due by Friday17th May 2019. If a young person completed the Module at the Foróige Leadership Conference, the Foróige Leadership Team is already in possession of those grades.
  • The Module 3 grade submission deadline – 21st June 2019 – is extremely tight, in respect of NUIG’s assessment deadlines. If you have concerns about this deadline, please let us know immediately by contacting leadership@foroige.ie
  • While Module 3 is largely a self-directed community project, the assigned mentor will provide support and encouragement regularly throughout the process, and will be responsible for submitting electronic grades for Module 3 work before the 21st June deadline. 
  • All grading is now submitted electronically, via an online form which will be sent to all registered mentors. Alternatively, you can access them here: Module 1 Grading Form / Module 2 Grading Form / Module 3 Grading Form

If you need any additional support with the grading process, please email leadership@foroige.ie.

 Step 2: Moderation

Tuesday 12th July: STRICT Moderation Deadline

All requested hard-copy samples of work are due at Foróige Parkwest Office (address below)

  • By Monday 1st July (or earlier if the electronic grades are submitted), we will be in touch to request that a specific sample of work is sent by each Mentor to the Foróige Leadership Team. These samples will be selected by Foróige Leadership, as a cross-section of grading, and will be moderated officially by NUI Galway.  
  • Once you have received notice of the sample requested, please post the sample to Foróige Leadership for Life, Foróige , Block 12D, Joyce Way, Parkwest D12 Y0A6 
  • For each individual sample requested, we will need the following:
  • Module 1 Workbook
  • Module 2 Workbook AND evidence of their Team Research Project
  • Module 3 Learning Journal AND Portfolio
  • IMPORTANT: In order to pass the course, all elements listed above must be submitted for grading. If any of the above are missing, please get in touch with leadership@foroige.ie as soon as possible, so that we can assist the participant
  • We are conscious that the deadline for postage and receipt of hard copies of participants’ work is very tight; unfortunately, this is necessary, and helps us accommodate the workload of NUIG. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding with this.

If you need additional support with the hard-copy moderation process, or have concerns regarding the deadlines, please get in touch with us leadership@foroige.ie

Further Steps

Once all grades and samples are processed, participants will receive confirmation, results and additional information (regarding Graduation, etc.) directly from NUI Galway. Please be advised that it may take a number of months for NUIG to process all submissions. 

Thank you for all your hard work!
