We were joined by political science professors Jacek Lubecki and Karen McCurdy, as well as economics professor Valentina Kozlova, for this informative session on peer assessment! 

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.

By exposing students to the reality that they must accept and interact with the opinions of others, these professors are helping prepare their students for what they will face in their careers. Through tech-enabled peer assessment, they have helped their students resolve ambiguities in their writing and learn to think outside the box when problem solving. 

These learnings from this session can be well applied to any classroom, especially ones with a focus on communication, politics, economics, international studies, and other social science related courses. 

What to expect:

  • Learnings and strong practices when implementing peer assessment
  • Preparing students for peer evaluations
  • Peer assessment activity examples in political science, economics, and social science courses
  • Live discussion focusing on improving collaboration, reflection, and work quality
  • Impact on student engagement, understanding of course concepts, social interactions, and accountability
  • A short walkthrough of Kritik's peer assessment platform and key features
  • 15 minutes of Q&A
