Assessment and FeedbackCoffee Course

Peer assessment and feedback

Three students discuss in a group.Peer assessment and peer 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 investigate the how and why peer assessment can be a powerful learning experience for students, share strategies on how to prepare, evaluate, and motivate students to participate in peer assessment.
