Stars for reviews

In CrowdGrader, students can give feedback on the quality of the reviews they receive.  The grades assigned by CrowdGrader take into account this feedback, creating an incentive for students to write helpful and insightful reviews.

Students can now leave feedback simply by assigning stars to the reviews, ranging from 1 star (very unhelpful, bogus) to 5 stars (very helpful).  A guide to the meaning of each star rating appears when students hover over the stars.  Here is how the new interface looks like.

A student's submission feedback.  Students can rate
the helpfulness of the reviews via a 1-to-5 star rating.

This change is part of an ongoing effort to streamline and simplify the CrowdGrader UI.  The new start-based feedback replaces an implementation based on forms and links.
