Evaluate a Self and Peer Assessment

[Printer Icon] Print this article

This allows students/participants to evaluate their peer's assessments providing valuable feedback on submitted answers. This feedback can provide improved comprehension of the material for both the assessed peer and the student/participant providing the evaluation.

Students/Participants can access the assessment using the same link they used to begin the evaluation. The Evaluation Overview page lists the number of submissions the student/participant needs to evaluate (including their own), with the evaluator's own name at the top of the list. If anonymous evaluations are enabled, the evaluator does not see the name of the student/participant whose assessment they are evaluating.

** Evaluations can only be done on the set dates chosen by the instructor/leader. If you do not see an option to evaluate, please contact your instructor/leader.
