Peer grading example: Climate literacy: navigating climate change conversations


Published on

Peer grades from a course I recently took (and completed) on - does peer grading scale and could it be used in the assessment of physicians?

In my course, the mean rating was used to create a score, using statistical methods, however, ratings can be tuned for greater accuracy. See for blog post about this.

Purchasing Renewable Energy Credits in Washington, DC - Climate Literacy Assignment 2.p df Evaluation/feedback on the above work Note: this section can only be filled out during the evaluation phase. Description of area or region: Needs Improvement: Description of area missing, or unclear to the reader/viewer Meets Expectations: Area or region clearly identified. Link to larger regional or global context present but doesn’t enrich the example. May simply give geography Exceptional: Area or region clearly described and placed in a larger regional or global context. Links to region or globe add relevant information and he
  3. 3. Score from your peers: 4 Area or Region: What feedback might you give to the author of the project in this area? peer 1 → Very clearly identified location both in the text with a map and its significance i.e. Washington DC, the national capital of the USA peer 2 → The introduction to the area and the subject matter was excellent..........and for a European reader it cleared up my lifelong query about which state Washington was in......none! Main Point or Claim: Needs Improvement: Main Point or Claim missing, or vague enough that the reader/viewer is unsure of the main point or claim. Meets Expectations: Main point or claim present. Reader/viewer may not be able to easily restate the main point themselves. Exceptional: Clear and concise main point or claim. Reader/viewer can easily identify and articulate the main point or claim. Score from your peers: 3.5 Main Point: What feedback might you give to the author of the project in this area? peer 1 → The main point regarding renewable energy and its impact on climate change is outlined quite clearly. peer 2 → The report fully met expectations in its development of it main theme of RECs as a recent market mechanism designed to encourage the consumption of electricity from renewable sources
  4. 4. Evidence: Needs Improvement: Evidence missing, or, if present, appears unrelated to main point, or does not support main point Meets Expectations: Scientific evidence relevant to the main point or claim presented. May not be quite thoroughly explained. Exceptional: Scientific evidence clearly explained; evidence presented clearly supports main point or claim Score from your peers: 3.5 Evidence: What feedback might you give to the author of the project in this area? peer 1 → Very good use of detailed evidence and how the REC system works in Washington and the part it plays in the mitigation of CO2. Perhaps a little too much detail for the definitions but still very useful information peer 2 → Again the report was fully acceptable in providing evidence and information about Washington DC and its deployment of this well described market mechanism. I would really have liked to hear about the extent to which individual consumers were actually buying into the scheme given the 20% premium over conventional electricity. Moreover I would have liked to hear how DC coped with criticism from cc deniers or anti tax lobbyists who would object to increased local taxes to fund as they would claim higher than necessary city electricity costs Presentation: Needs Improvement: Confusing or difficult to understand Meets Expectations: Organized logically, easy to understand Exceptional: Organized logically, easy to understand, engaging and creative
  5. 5. Score from your peers: 4 Presentation: What feedback might you give to the author of the project in this area? peer 1 → Generally quite easy to follow; there was a very good discussion of the benefits and the barriers regarding renewable energy in the latter part of the essay. peer 2 → This report was very well presented with good referencing and excellent use of diagrams peer 3 → Very good presentation Overall evaluation/feedback Note: this section can only be filled out during the evaluation phase. Please write here any other comments, feedback, encouragement, etc. that you feel might be helpful to the author of this work. peer 1 → Overall a good and informative essay which certainly helped me understand much better the system of renewable energy purchasing in Washington DC. I was very interested in your final comments on the possibility of a carbon tax in DC and it will certainly be an interesting debate to follow. peer 2 → I enjoyed reading this well presented report on a market mechanism being developed for cc mitigation in the USA which is being enthusiastically adopted by the nation's capital city peer 4 → Very nice. Easy to read and follow.
