Project looks into self/peer assessment tools

Tami Saj

The 2015-2016 Teaching with Technology projects have been focused on applying technology to team-based learning at Royal Roads. Lois Fearon, School of Business, has led one of the projects, Best practices for Self and Peer Assessment.

The team process and an individual’s contribution within the team are most often not fully considered or assessed. This research project investigates the implementation of self and peer assessment tools that can be used to assist in increasing students’ , instructors’ , and coaches’  understanding of team processes. The purpose of this research project is to examine best practices and provide recommendations on the use of self and peer assessment technology/tools by faculty at RRU.

Please mark your calendars, and join project researchers Ingrid Kajzer-Mitchell, Trish Dyck, Sarah Chettleburgh, and BJ Eib at 1 p.m. on Thursday, September 22nd for the Teaching with Technology Showcasetaking place both in the Quarterdeck and online.
