An (Activity) Type for all Occasions


The core formative peer-assessment process can be used across a wide range of pedagogical contexts, and peerScholar can support them all

All Students work off of the same instructor prompt and go through the process of giving and receiving feedback. A great option for large or very large classes, but also the go-to for classes of all sizes.

Students will see different cases (topics) and can give feedback to peers who did the same case or a different case.

Select from 3 types of Group Work Activities: Groups Assess, Individuals Assess, or Group Member Evaluation

Amplify the Educational Experience 


Even using traditional approaches formative peer-assessment provides a powerful learning experience that deepens concept knowledge while exercising transversal skills.  But when managed by a properly designed Ed Tech tool it allows for the following advantage

Harness the power of formative peer-assessment in any educational context, irrespective of class size or mode of delivery

Provide the repetition of exercise that is critical to skill development by having students assess multiple peers, then learn from the feedback of multiple peers

Optimize the learning process by embedding expertise in the form of micro learning resources.  For example, prior to giving feedback students can watch videos that motivate them to want to learn the skill, and that guide them in terms of what good feedback should look like

When coupled with the use of validated rubrics, peerScholar can measure the skills of interest and recognize the specific skills sets students demonstrate on a digital portfolio, providing a much richer sense of students abilities (Joordens et al.

The social aspects of our technology-enabled formative peer assessment approach are engaging to students, and enhance the community when used in even large and online classes (Paré et al.)

Anonymous feedback supports better learning and, critically, it also provides an assessment context that does not allow gender or cultural biases to act
