Feedback is crucial for learning and development. However, students rarely get an opportunity to practice giving constructive feedback and responding constructively to feedback. In our industry-based capstone course, our students provide feedback to their peers through multiple iterations using Peer Assess Pro. A research-based framework embedded in Peer Assess Pro enables students to provide concise and constructive feedback. Timely and iterative feedback loops help students reflect and elevate their performance.
My students use Peer Assess Pro to assess their teammates’ teamwork skills in Team-Based Learning. Timely feedback to team members means that they learn where they are making a positive impact and where they need to improve.
Peer Assess Pro allows me to quickly and efficiently take the pulse of all of my teams and fairly award individual marks based on how well they performed in the team and their overall contribution to the project.
