How to make peer assessment work in Moodle

Content Type: How To's

Target Audience: Teacher / Course Creator 

Language: English

Description of Presentation

The Workshop module in Moodle allows a teacher to set up a peer assessment activity, in which students evaluate their colleagues' work. This activity presents tantalizing prospects, but it can be challenging to use.

The first challenge is in setting up a peer assessment activity with proper instructions and settings for the submission, assessment (including the assessment form), and conclusion phases. The second challenge is in orchestrating the activity in a live course.

Done right, a peer assessment activity can motivate students in an online course to assess their colleagues' works and they may get meaningful feedback on their own work. But this activity can also confuse and disappoint students if it's not handled well.

Last year, I was the sole facilitator in a Moodle course with more than 250 students. I used three peer assessment activities in the course, and the results were encouraging. Most students took part in the peer assessments, enjoyed doing them, and liked the feedback they received from their peers. I simply wouldn't have been able to do the assessments myself given the size of the student group!

During this talk, I will share tips on how to effectively set up and run a peer assessment activity using the Workshop module.
