Peer Assessment• What is it? – Assessing the work of others against an official assessment criteria.• Why do it? – To give others useful feedback and hints on how they can improve their work – To help ourselves understand more about how our work is marked and reflect on our own work – To get ideas on how to improve our own work
Design Cycle• We have just completed the Analysis stage of the Design Cycle.• This included: – An introduction to the problem/task/Unit Q – Researching answers to your guiding questions – A Design Brief – A Design Specification – A Test Plan – An evaluation of your performance so far
Assessing this work• We need to assess this work against the Assessment Criteria, which is…
The Terminology• Pay close attention to the words in bold on the criteria. They mark the difference between the levels that are awarded…
Your First Task• You need to get into pairs• You have 25 minutes to assess someone else’s Analysis work that I will provide you with• You need to make sure you are very strict with the marking against the criteria• You need to make sure the student has included all the different sections of work and that nothing is missing• Fill in the feedback sheet I have linked to on the blog
Task Two: Feedback• We will now feed back to the students who’s work you have marked in a class discussion.• Discuss the level you have given and reason why you have given that level.• Any suggestions for improvements?• Anything you think the person did very well?
Task Three• Your next task is to consider your own work and identify some areas for improvement.• You have been studying the Assessment Criteria throughout this lesson and have hopefully considered whether your own work meets the highest level of this criteria.• It is unlikely that everyone in this class has already achieved a level 6 for this, so take 10 minutes to consider what level you consider your work to be and then list some ideas for improvements that can raise your work up a level.
Homework• Carry out the improvements you have suggested in the last activity in order to improve your work and raise its level.
