Self and Peer Assessment

Self and peer assessment are key strategies to enhance the role of the student from passive learner to active leaner and assessor. These strategies can help students develop capabilities and skills such as critical evaluation, constructive feedback, increased awareness of personal sensitivities, and the ability to justify a position. They also provide students with the opportunity to gain an understanding of their own subjectivity and judgement.

This workshop will be focused on designing an assessment task on Blackboard using the Self and Peer Assessment tool. Participants will learn how to:

  1. Set up a self and peer assessment.
  2. Distinguish all the options available in creating self and peer assessment.
  3. Introduce the concept to students.
  4. Monitor and judge performance.

What is Peer Assessment?

Students review and assess the work of fellow students through criteria-based evaluation and provide constructive feedback.

What is Self Assessment?

This is similar to Peer Assessment but students evaluate their own work as well as the work of fellow students through criteria-based evaluation.

When: Wednesday, 30 April 2:00 - 3:00 pm
Where: Arts eLearning Lab, room 322, Brennan MacCallum building.
