A Professor's Experience with Peer Evaluation
Professor Robert Duvall (Computer Science) will speak about his experiences organize peer evaluation of group work. As a part of their grades when working in teams, students are expected to rate their own participation in the group, as well as to provide feedback about how their colleagues contributed (or not) to the team. He will share the types of questions he asks students in order to extract meaningful feedback to be used as a basis for improving student team work, and about his attempts to bring some formality to peer grading through online programs and grading guidelines.
Lunch will be provided.
