Student Peer Assessment and Peer Feedback has many benefits, not just reducing the workload of you, the lecturer. The benefits of peer feedback and peer assessment for students are myriad, requiring them to evaluate, critique, reflect and articulate feedback.
As noted by McGourty et al (1998) – “faculty have increasingly turned to the use of cooperative learning techniques in the classroom. [1,2,3] These techniques promote interdependence amongst students, encourage interaction, require information sharing and typically include the use of team-based projects as cornerstones of the learning process. One of the keys to making cooperative learning successful is the shifting of the student’s role from a passive receiver of information into an active participant. “
Students develop skills in examining subject-matter-relevant material and recommending areas which they could improve upon and what areas of strength. Having multiple students provide feedback on a specific piece of work also provides multiple perspectives, adding additional viewpoints and considerations.
