Reflection: Checks for Understanding Reflections in Water and Air - Section 6: Evaluate


So, I begin teaching students to evaluate their peers's work by giving them one thing to look for in their peers' work. Then I tell them to put a smiley face: student work on their partners' work. This is the most simply way to assess work. Then I walk around to see if they did it correctly.

Once they can do this then I introduce other rubrics: self and peer evaluation rubric where they can evaluate their own work, and  they can add up their score. Then the students move on to a rubric: self, peer, and teacher evaluation rubric  where the evaluate themselves, their peer, and then I can add my own evaluation. I usually add my evaluation during the lesson while the class is discussing their evaluations with their peers.
