Peer Assessment (PA) refers to students providing feedback on other students’ assignments to help them improve their work. This feedback may or may not involve a grade. While the learning benefits of PA have been well established, successful PA experiences hinge on the careful design of the PA activities students are asked to engage in. In this workshop, we address the principles that support sound design of PA activities. You will have the opportunity to reflect on these principles and begin to develop a PA assignment.
