Prepping Students for Peer Assessment

Series: CTLT Institute

Event Date & Time

  • December 6, 2017
    9:00 am - 10:30 am

Event Description

Students are skeptical about the fairness of grades determined by peer assessment methods. However, this skepticism disappears when students are given the opportunity to learn about and to practice peer assessment skills. In this session, we will show you an online workshop for giving students practice with peer assessing written work. We will discuss the implementation of this workshop, and its adaptation for different courses. We will also review the educational goals that can be achieved by the use of peer assessment methods, report on students’ perception of the workshop, and show how it has affected the quality of their written work.
