Activity Introduction

Introduction: Peer assessment is a process where students can give valuable feedback based on a teacher’s benchmarks. This method of assessment can be employed to improve students’ understanding of content as well as their metacognitive skills. During communication projects students share their new understandings to their peers and receive personalised feedback based on criteria.

Key words: assessment, peer assessment, rubric, presentation, communication.
