Two interesting points in the 2/21 Faculty Focus Blog. She mentions the results of a study where student peer evaluation grades were lower than the faculty’s evaluation grade of the student. I usually see the opposite.
A second interesting point can be found in the final paragraph. It is the idea of the presenter grading the person who critiques them based upon the quality of feedback provided instead of the peer evaluation counting for part of the final grade of the presenter. The basis for this according to the blogger is that students will take providing peer evaluations seriously and provide better feedback. Interesting concept I had never thought of before!
