Assessing group work and providing meaningful feedback to individual members of a group can be challenging, since the instructor is not always aware of internal group dynamics. This is why we have developed the Peer Evaluation Tool, which allows students to evaluate and provide feedback based on each group member’s contribution to a group project. In this workshop, we will explore this tool by providing participants with an opportunity to modify the tool settings and personalize the specific criteria and grading scale according to their own needs, then use the tool to obtain feedback based on a sample group of students. A discussion regarding the applications and implications of using the tool will follow.


Learning Objectives:

In this workshop, we will:  

  • Discuss the advantages and challenges associated with peer evaluations and peer-based feedback
  • Demonstrate how the Peer Evaluation Tool can be adapted to reflect the requirements of the group project and the desired grading scheme
  • Use the Peer Evaluation Tool for a sample group of students 


• Please bring a laptop to this workshop.
