1 Peer assessment and group work event and practical workshop RSC WM Stimulating and supporting innovation in learning

2 Objectives for the day delegates will have an opportunity to:  Consider the value of peers and group work for feedback and the development of independent learning  gain an understanding or how WebPA and Peerwise work and can be used to set and support peer assessment activities  have an opportunity to try out both WebPA and Peerwise  have access to and opportunity to explore (free, online) resources that help plan, manage and support group work effectively (for staff and students) RSC WM Stimulating and supporting innovation in learning

3 Over to you… What are your main objectives today?  What do you personally hope to gain from this event? RSC WM Stimulating and supporting innovation in learning

4 Peer assessment is… 1.the process of students giving formative or summative feedback to each other 2.it may or may not involve the provision of a grade 3.It can be 1 to 1 but is often a group activity 4.It is suited to many types of activity and any discipline RSC WM Stimulating and supporting innovation in learning

5 What works?  presentations, reports, essay plans, calculations, annotated bibliographies, practical work, poster displays, portfolios and exhibitions.  There is good reason to use highly objective assessments, with straightforward answers (e.g. calculations) rather than assessments with low objectivity, such as essays. Race (1999) RSC WM Stimulating and supporting innovation in learning

6 Over to you…  Are you/your staff using peer assessment?  What do you see as the biggest advantages and challenges of using peer assessment? RSC WM Stimulating and supporting innovation in learning

7  Using peer assessment, where pairs or groups comment constructively on one another's work, enables students to understand assessment criteria and deepens their learning in several ways, including: a) learning from the way others have approached an assessment task (structure, content, analysis) and b)learning through assessing someone else's work, which encourages them to evaluate and benchmark their own performance and to improve it. RSC WM Stimulating and supporting innovation in learning Paving the way to success Code of practice for the assurance of academic quality and standards in higher education

8 Higher level skills The QAA expects programmes to address:  intellectual skills  practical skills  transferable/key skills “The ability to monitor, critically assess and correct one’s own work is a key goal of higher education and of lifelong learning.” RSC WM Stimulating and supporting innovation in learning

9 Skills for learning and life Higher level learning skills:  research skills  analysis and synthesis of knowledge  critical thinking & reflection  Problem solving  Communication skills Life skills  Team work  Evaluation  resourcefulness RSC WM Stimulating and supporting innovation in learning

10 Quality in Assessment  Engages students with the assessment criteria  Supports personalised learning  Ensures feedback leads to improvement  Focuses on student development  Stimulates dialogue  Considers staff and tutor effort ESCAPE Project - quality in learning from assessment practices RSC WM Stimulating and supporting innovation in learning

11 7 principles of good feedback 1.helps clarify what good performance is (goals, criteria, standards) 2.facilitates the development of self-assessment and reflection in learning 3.delivers high quality information to students about their learning 4.encourages teacher and peer dialogue around learning 5.encourages positive motivational beliefs and self esteem 6.provides opportunities to close the gap between current and desired performance 7.provides information to teachers that can be used to help shape teaching.
