Designing a peer review assessment task

Practical pedagogy sessions

Discover learning techniques and strategies for developing successful peer assessment activities for students.

About this session

Peer assessment can be a powerful meta-cognitive tool, allowing students to engage in the learning process as an evaluator of others. This unique perspective gives the students insight into the assessment process, but also allows them to provide rich feedback to their peers on their work.

Using examples from Subjects and Communities within the LMS, this session will share tips for assessment design and grading and feedback guidelines, critical to the success of any peer assessment activity.

In addition, techniques and strategies to ensure that students (who may initially be uncomfortable with giving and receiving feedback from peers) understand the benefits of peer assessment to their own learning will be explored.
