Peer- and self-assessment

For group assignments, ask students to complete and submit a confidential form wherein they assess how well they, and other members of their group met particular expectations (that are clearly noted in the assignment). Examples might include meeting deadlines, providing feedback, dividing up the workload, etc.. I found that even though I never used the information provided as part of the students’ grades, the fact that they were given these forms at the start of the project helped them to pre-empt the most common problems that can arise during group work.
