Student-Centered Assessment Guide: Peer Assessment

By George Brooke and Heidi Andrade
April 23, 2013

Developed by the Students at the Center Team to illustrate the practical application of the research described in their Assessing Learning paper, this guide summarizes peer assessment as a student-centered assessment practice. The guide provides a clear definition and steps for implementing peer assessment effectively in the classroom. It looks specifically at the use of The Ladder of Feedback technique and provides an example.

Peer assessment is simply a matter of students giving informed feedback to one another on an assignment. Effective peer assessment is related to clear standards and is supported by a constructive process of critique. This simple guide can help any teacher begin implementing this practice in their classroom.
