Asking students to self-assess can have many benefits: self-assessment gives them pause to reflect, which allows them to learn where their strengths and gaps are, and it also leads to deeper learning. It can also help them better understand the expectations of the course and the discipline. Peer-assessment can provide similar learning. Even better, both peer- and self-assessment can lead to helpful feedback for students without increasing your grading load. However, if students aren’t taught how to assess—and give appropriate feedback—then peer- and self-assessment can be detrimental rather than helpful. In this session, we’ll discuss strategies for helping students develop peer- and self-assessment skills, including approaches to teaching students how to give helpful feedback.
