Peer Evaluation of Group Process and Function √ §

Panelists share how they hold students accountable in groups



Date & Time

March 9, 2023, 12:00 pm1:00 pm


If you use groups or teams regularly in classes, you know that group function is not always smooth–some students may dominate while others gladly let others do most of the work. These social issues can be especially problematic if students receive a grade for some aspect of the group work. One common way to hold students accountable for their efforts in these situations is peer evaluation. In this session, faculty panelists will share insights from their use of peer evaluation, including ways both to teach students how to work well in groups and to evaluate group function. These techniques can be implemented in various group settings including projects, class work done in groups, or Team-Based Learning. Panelists include Mark Berczynski (ECEP), Mariajosé Castellanos (CBEE), Milvia Hernández (MLLI), Sarah Leupen (BIOL), and Christopher Rakes (EDUC).
