Reflection: Checks for Understanding The Man Who Walked Between the Towers - Section 3: Whaddya Think??


I have used peer assessment in class before- generally it's a "hold up the number of fingers (correlated to points) you would give this constructed response" and I've always used rubrics for students to self assess, but I've never used peer assessment with a rubric.  

My students get pretty good at peer assessing and they enjoy it.  This activity with the stickers went over so much better than I thought it would.  I was nervous that students would be all over the place and not focused on the task at hand.  To my surprise, though, they took the assessing very seriously and worked together with the rubric to fairly and accurately assess the charts that their classmates completed.  This is definitely a strategy that I would try again.
