Peer Feedback


Do you wants students to be engaged in more critical reflection? Do you want students to have a deeper understanding of the learned content? With digital peer feedback tools these goals can be achieved without much additional effort. Peer feedback can be used with a wide variety of educational products and processes. Think about essays, shorts texts or portfolios. It is also possible to apply peer feedback in the learning process or let students evaluate group processes.

A few things to consider

Formative or summative assessment?  There are various definitions on formative or summative assessments. To keep things simple: Formative = for learning, Summative = measure learning outcomes. Process or product review? Different tools have a different purposes. Decide upfront if you are using a tool to evaluate group processes or if you want students to review products.

At our university we have several tools available for you to use. The quickest way to start is with the integrated possibilities in Canvas. Otherwise you could use Buddycheck, and also digital portfolio.
