By allowing students the opportunity to collaborate and build off each other's ideas, the ceiling is raised exponentially for what students can accomplish. Prof. Sarah Buckallew, who teaches Nutrition and Exercise Physiology at the University of Missouri, has found peer assessment to be an effective way of achieving this, while also improving student engagement with course material.
Check out some of our session highlights in the short video below, and see how you can adapt activities and key takeaways to your own courses to provide a more enriching learning experience for your students with peer assessment.
“I really appreciated how students could see what other students actually did because they don’t typically go out and see what their peers are doing. When they hear that constructive criticism from their peers, it really elevates the feedback that the students are getting and elevates the learning experience for everyone involved.” - Prof. Sarah Buckallew
Prof. Buckallew’s experiences with peer assessment in her courses can be well applied to any classroom, especially ones with a focus on science including biology, chemistry, health, nutrition, and other research related courses.
