For three decades I’ve beeen facilitating and researching teams, while teaching IT with student teams at Boise State. I strongly believe that collaborative learning is one of the most powerful pedagogies available for college students.
Too frequently, however, team dynamics poison the experience. Peer Assessments could overcome the problems if students could learn from the feedback, but manually reassembling that data into individual reports takes too much time. That experience led me to design PeerAssessment.Com, helping students to grow their team skills while it cut my workload.
PeerAssessment.Com improves student team success in three ways by supporting:
- Individual Accountability for team members (i.e. grading individual contribution)
- Team Dynamics Monitoring by the instructor, who can intervene when necessary
- Rich Peer Feedback for students to improve their team skills
PeerAssessment.Com is peer assessment done right: it automates the peer assessment process, making it easier to hold more frequent peer assessments that return real feedback to students so they can improve their team skills. Prepare a peer assessment for your entire class in under 5 minutes. Then PeerAssessment.Com takes care of the rest; collecting and distributing the feedback to students, plus preparing a grading sheet for you.
Please give PeerAssessment.Com a try, and unlock the potential of your student learning teams. Simply Sign In and Register an account, and receive a free class trial. Or contact me directly, I look forward to working with you.
