Guide to Peer Assessment - Dr Mike Wride

Peer assessment can dramatically reduce the marking load on academic staff and allow them to devote their time to other aspects of teaching and learning. This pamphlet aims to introduce formative and summative peer assessment to academics who are considering implementing peer review in their teaching. It provides a ‘theory into practice’ approach and outlines techniques and examples for using formalised peer assessment more directly in the design of curricula and for making its use more explicit in the classroom in order to help students learn more effectively. It also discusses some of the challenges associated with it.
