Stage 2: Evaluate

You will be assigned a few peer creations to evaluate. Similarly, your Creation will also be evaluated by a few of your peers.

NOTE: Evaluations are done anonymously. You will not see who you are evaluating, and your peer will not know who evaluated them.

  • You'll be evaluating your peers in two ways:

    • Score your peers based on a rubric given in the activity

    • Give a written evaluation.

How to submit an evaluation:

​​NOTE: Evaluations are done anonymously. You will not see who you are evaluating, and your peer will not know who evaluated them (unless you are participating in a within-group activity)

  1. Navigate to the ‘Activities’ page

  2. Select the Activity Card

  3. Review the rubric set by your instructor.

  4. Review your peers' work, and select the appropriate star value you believe your peer deserves for their work.

  5. Select at least one criterion (an aspect of the rubric) where your peer did well or could improve on under ‘Select a criterion’

  6. Write a written evaluation of your peer in the textbox

    1. Refer to criteria done well within the rubric and include important things that your peers could do to improve.

    2. Make your points clear and actionable and if possible, provide specific examples

  7. Select ‘Save & Submit’

NOTE: Make sure you submit each of your assigned evaluations. Click through each of the evaluation tabs.

Stage 3: Feedback

Provide your evaluators feedback in relation to how they evaluated you. Your peers will give you feedback for the evaluations you submitted.

  • You will be helping each other learn how to become stronger evaluators.

  • You will score the peer evaluator on two different aspects of their written evaluations;

    • Motivational

    • Critical

Motivational: How motivating was the written evaluation

Critical: How helpful was the written evaluation
