Peer assessment and feedback involves students reviewing and assessing the work of their peers, and can be a very powerful learning experience. Peer assessment and feedback can cover a broad range of practices and be implemented for economic, cultural, self-assessment, and motivational reasons. However, there are some risks to be managed, and we need to properly prepare students to accept and succeed at peer assessment and feedback.
This course will introduce peer assessment and feedback, as well as share strategies on how to prepare, evaluate, and motivate students to participate successfully in peer assessment and feedback.
This course ran from Monday, 4 June to Friday, 8 June 2018 through this blog but is accessible online to anyone interested. There are 5 blog posts, one per day, that will take about 10-15 minutes to work through.
- Day 1 – Why do peer assessment and feedback?
- Day 2 – Preparing students for peer assessment and feedback
