Group work grades by students

Jump to solution

Hi all! Just wondering if anyone had used a peer review assignment as a way of students giving each other grades for groupwork? Its the only way I can think of doing it, without having the students complete exit surveys on paper and then I collate the grades.

I just completed a course development for an agile team management course which ran this past spring. At the end of each sprint (team activity round), each member of the team responded to a graded survey in Canvas. The brief 5-question survey asked individual team members to rate the groups overall success across three areas: communication, collaboration, and effectiveness. Then they each voted one member of the team as the "gold star" member of the sprint and identified one area the group needed to improve (individually or as a team). 

When I went back and talked to the instructor, he indicated he could review the surveys quickly in Speed Grader and problem areas and strengths stood out pretty clearly. These performance cues guided a few individual interventions and commendations during the term and were rolled into an individually assigned group performance grade for the course.

 @richardm , I haven't tried this, but it sounds like a pretty good idea. I'm assuming you would have each students submit something - maybe have them briefly write-up how they contributed to their group (I actually have my students do this at the end of their group projects) - and then manually assign students to review the other people in their group? This is actually a pretty cool idea! 🙂

Yet, to see if anyone else can give you feedback on this I'm going to share it with a few groups in the Community (https://community.canvaslms.com/groups/designers?sr=search&searchId=1958b7e7-ba25-4237-b82f-e1c4ed92...‌, https://community.canvaslms.com/groups/higher-ed?sr=search&searchId=d75ce57e-e479-48d3-b264-9f64f7ba...‌, & https://community.canvaslms.com/groups/k12?sr=search&searchId=c8f442cc-5f27-42de-bbb9-6a083869dcf6&s...‌).
