problem with peer reviewed assignments

Hi everyone!

Í have taken the course Music and Social Action and noticed a problem with peer reviewed assignments.

I have completed the course, but had to reset my deadlines because I didn't get enough reviews. I took the time to review more than 100 peer assignments, some even from 2017, and flagged many other because there were technical issues whenever I tried to load them. I wonder if there is someone checking those issues, as I suppose those students are still waiting for their reviews to be able to complete the course.

I posted about this on the course forum 10 days ago, but got no answer. There is still a huge list of pending assignments, so I wonder if this system is really working. Shouldn't there be a moderator to solve that situation? Is it really so that some people have been waiting three years to get their certificate?

If there is such a huge list of pending reviews, I wonder when I will have my assignments reviewed. The university that offers the course doesn't seems to care.

Has anyone had a similar problem? And in that case, what did you do to solve it? Has Coursera helped in any way? Thank you!


Best regards,


Paola

@Paola , many of these people might have already passed! They didn’t get the required 3 reviews so they are still listed, however they have passed with only 1 review. Please don’t spend time grading all of these assignments because they don’t need to be reviewed unless they have 0 reviews. If hundreds of people were still waiting for the assignments to be reviewed, Coursera would have gotten hundreds of complaints about it. The system has been changed so that if by your deadline you only have1 or 2 reviews , you will pass.

Thank you for your answer, Judith! I didn't know that you could pass with only one review. So I will wait a bit longer and see if I can get at least one. Thanks again for your help!
@Paola Adding to what @Judith explained: people cannot be waiting three years for a certificate as the time limit to complete a course after you have paid for the certificate is 180 days or so. Unless you pay, you will not get a certificate of having passed the course, only that you completed it.
@Paola , your course sounds so interesting. We have a music forum here. Perhaps you could start a thread about some aspect of music, or even tell us about this course.It might interest others. Thanks.
