Peer and Self Assessment


Techniques for Using Peer and Self Assessment

Peer and self assessment form a natural part of using Roamer.  What is it, how does it help your students and how do you make it work?


Student teams show their solution to the rest of the class.  If you turn these spectators into umpires you create a peer assessment opportunity.  Umpire duties include making sure the teams keep to the rules and checking the scores, judging the quality of solutions and recording times and so on.

If a dispute arises they need to find a resolution.  They learn to play by the rules and develop communication, conflict management and other sustainable skills.  Make sure your umpires know their role and issues they might face.
