For good reason, student involvement in peer evaluation has increased in higher education. While the validity and reliability of using grades from peers for assessments are still being explored, it's clear that participating in a well-designed peer evaluation system can improve student learning outcomes in numerous ways. 

Particularly for collaborative learning, peer assessment can: promote reflection on individual and team learning behaviours, offer opportunities to develop professional skills in providing evaluation and feedback, and discourage ‘free riders’ who fail to contribute to the team’s learning.

This presentation will address alternative methods for setting up a peer evaluation system, the pros and cons of each approach, and the importance of providing students with scaffolding in the form of clearly articulated rubrics. It will also demonstrate how Turnitin’s QuickMarks has the potential to be an academic’s most useful and efficient feedback tool, reducing marking time  and helping identify key learning gaps for students.

This session covers:

  • Discuss peer evaluation as a means of formative and/or summative assessment
  • Decide on suitable peer evaluation criteria for your teaching and learning context
  • Demonstrate how QuickMarks can assist a marker using Turnitin to reduce time spent marking
  • Demonstrate how assessing the use of QuickMarks over time can assist in identifying knowledge gaps for a student group that can be resolved through teaching and measured at the conclusion of the semester


Who should watch:

Educators and administrators in further education who are involved in the design and delivery of collaborative learning for students and seeking to learn new rubric design strategies for effective feedback, whilst increasing efficiency.
