Group Member Evaluation

Improve collaboration skills of your students with group member peer assessments

How does it work?

This tool streamlines the way students assess their peers’ collaboration skills. The teacher specifies by which criteria students evaluate their peers’ contribution to group work. Additionally, teachers can require students to elaborate, by commenting on the feedback they provide their peers, thereby combining quantitative and qualitative feedback.

Groups are automatically synced from the LMS and each student is automatically assigned. The built-in analytics allow teachers to instantly monitor students’ progress and the amount of time they spent giving feedback.

Tool Features

Teachers can change the type of group member evaluation activity to reviewing the activity either within groups or groups giving feedback to other groups.

The tool allows teachers to structure and customize peer assessment criteria with options such as qualitative feedback criteria, scales, or rubrics.

The tool enables students to critically review their own contribution before assessing others'.

Teachers have the possibility to convert any activity into a summative task, configure which steps of the assignment should be graded and how much element should count to determine the final grade.

Teachers can set deadlines on when to release feedback that has been provided to students. The tool doesn't show the feedback student get from their peers until the deadlines are over to avoid bias.

Teachers can either design open peer assessment, encouraging comparison and discussion among students or anonymously, depending on the assessment task and context.

Pedagogical value

Teaching value

Group Member Evaluation provides teachers insights into the collaborative process, thereby tackling the problem of free-riding. Peer-assessment is crucial to develop students' empowerment, confidence, and the ability to self-evaluate and reflect.

Learning value

Group Member Evaluation enables students to become self-critical as they assess their own, and their team's, performance in group-work activities. It can also transfer some ownership of the assessment process to students, thereby potentially increasing motivation, engagement, and deeper learning.

The AI-tool Automated Feedback on writing gives students instant feedback on the quality of academic writing in assignments, thesis, and other deliverables. Students improve their academic writing skills by receiving direct in-line feedback, resulting in more permanent and actionable learning. As importantly, the tool also reduces the time spent on assignment review for teachers, allowing them to reallocate their time on providing feedback on the content rather than the form. 

Fleur Prinsen Testimonial

After improvements were made, like the automatic synchronisation of groups, that was a real winner for me... In the end, [Group Member Evaluation] was a starting point for students to be able to improve their collaboration.
