Nicol and Macfarlane Dick - REAP Principles. PeerMark Overview. PeerMark™ is the new peer review assignment tool.

PeerMark Overview

Instructors can create and manage PeerMark assignments that allow students to read, review, and evaluate one or many papers submitted by their classmates. With the advanced options in PeerMark instructors can choose whether the reviews are anonymous or attributed, decide if students should be excluded from reviews, or pair students to assign students specific papers to review. The basic stages of the PeerMark assignment process: Distribution of Peer Reviews PeerMark assignments may use or mix the following methods of distribution of the papers to be reviewed:

PeerWise. REAP > PEER. "..if we want students to develop critical thinking, judgement and autonomy in assignment production they should be provided with high-level evaluative experiences similar to those of experts.

REAP > PEER

Peer review, students evaluating and commenting on each other's work, is one way to achieve this' What is the PEER project? PEER stands for Peer Evaluation in Education Review the PEER project has received funding (2010-11) from the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) under its Innovation Grants scheme the project is led by the University of Strathclyde the PEER project will identify educational designs and software tools that support learning through peer review it will also pilot and evaluate peer review implementations Why is the PEER project important?

Using technology to encourage student engagement with feedback: a literature review

Parkin, Louise Thorpe Abstract This article presents a review of the literature over the past 10 years into the use of technological interventions that tutors might use to encourage students to engage with and action the feedback that they receive on their assessment tasks. The authors hypothesise that technology has the potential to enhance student engagement with feedback.

Tutoring on-line - ALT_Wiki. Initial Authors Gilly Salmon & Mike Keppell Background/Definitions Within Higher Education, tutoring is considered to be adult-to-adult guidance within a specific course/subject for the clear purpose of advancing learning competence in an area of study.

Tutoring on-line - ALT_Wiki

Generally a tutor is an academic, lecturer or professor who has responsibility for teaching in a degree/diploma programme in a university or vocational teaching and learning setting. In distance learning, tutors may be recruited specifically for the role of teaching and supporting students through online tutoring. Tutoring online refers to the process of tutoring within an online virtual environment or networked environment where teachers and learners are separated by time and space. From the very beginning of online tutoring, researchers recognised that there is a pedagogical (educational) role, a social support/group development role, a managerial role and, usually to a lesser extent a technical support role to be fulfilled by someone.

Technology-supported assessment - ALT_Wiki. Initial Author David Nicol Background and Definitions Assessment is a complex process in formal learning contexts.

Technology-supported assessment - ALT_Wiki

It involves (i) devising learning tasks to sample the learning expected from participation in a course or programme of study (i.e. knowledge, skills and attitudes) (ii) assessing performance on these tasks and interpreting the results, and (iii) using the information acquired to enhance further learning (e.g. feedback) and/or to produce a grade.

Effective Assessment in a Digital Age. Materials are now available from the series of workshops based around the JISC Effective Assessment in a Digital Age publication.

Effective Assessment in a Digital Age

Find out more1 Effective Assessment in a Digital Age is aimed at those in higher and further education who design assessment and feedback for their learners. The guide draws on recent JISC reports and case studies from different contexts and modes of learning to explore the relationship between technology-enhanced assessment and feedback practices and meaningful, well-supported learning experiences. 2Effective Assessment in a Digital Age complements Effective Practice in a Digital Age3, the 2009 JISC guide to learning and teaching with technology, and Effective practice with e-Assessment4 (JISC 2007) by focusing on the potential enhancement to assessment and feedback practices offered by both purpose-designed and more familiar technologies.
