Teaching and learning applications
Peer Feedback Assignments are an opportunity for students to receive and give feedback through the review of artefacts and events, including essays, posters, videos, presentations, performances and professional practices. Instructors create the review structure, providing evaluation criteria with options of ratings and text responses, choosing the number of self and peer reviews to be completed, and timings. Reviews can be based on individual or group submissions. Students can also be assessed on several components of the activity, including participation, scores awarded by reviewers, and the quality of their reviews. The relative weightings of these components are chosen by the instructor.
Group Member Evaluation Assignments are an opportunity to collect feedback about teams or groups and their members. Students can reflect on the group experience and provide confidential feedback to staff, addressing the performance and contributions of individual members, including a self-evaluation. Instructors create the review structure and assign to particular group or all groups within a subject in the LMS.
