The Peer Assessment Tool allows students to assess each other’s work. Students can give and receive feedback of their peers about a particular learning product in an ILS – hypotheses, questions etc. The feedback is given by rating a product on a number of criteria with a help of smileys and/or comments.
After the Peer Assessment Tool has been added to the Teacher Dashboard of the ILS, Peer Assessment can be activated in the configuration of the app(s) where it should be used. The supported apps have a predefined set of criteria, which can be changed in the app configuration. The students request, give and read the feedback in the supported apps. Assigning feedback requests to students (to give feedback) is done manually in the Peer Assessment Tool.
At the moment Peer Assessment is supported by the Concept Mapper, Hypothesis Scratchpad, Question Scratchpad and Table Tool.
