Peer Structure and Support

 

This is a student hierarchy of directors and teams that will actively participate in peer evaluation by creating the assessment, reviewing the results annonymously, and presenting feedback on responses.

 

Objectives

Evidence

  • Students identify and understand the skills that they want to assess in their peers.
  • Students correctly comprehend the literacy concepts.

 

  • Students collaborate to use Google Forms to create their peer assessment.
  • Students collaborate to collect and review the results from the peer assessment
  • Students successfully create an assessment that targets that skill.
  • Students successfully create an assessment with correct ideas and content.
  • Students will share with the teacher the Google Form that they created
  • Students will present their annonymous evaluation for the peer responses

1. Would the program you detailed in Chapter One benefit from an evaluation? If so, how?

Yes.  The evaluation can show how Google Forms serve as a medium for students to collaborate and communicate with other peers, allowing them to evaluate their peers comprehension and skills with literacy.  Student engagement in the learning process is an additional benefit by teaching them analytical skills through their own evaluation process.
2. What are the inherent limitations in the evaluation of the program?

One limitation is my direct involvement in the process.  Not only will I be working as an evaluator, but in most cases I will also be the faciliator of the related activities.  Additionally, at this point there is no third party for reviewing the evaluation progress and results.  I will likely seek out the involvement of the director of the learning resource center (LRC) because many of the activities will take place in the learning resource center.  Perhaps the director can take on some of the facilitator roles to allow me to observe more as the evaluator.

There are possible social factors that could impede the flow of the evaluation process.  As students are assigned roles of leadership and are also put in charge of evaluating peers, this could prove challenging for some students to handle.  Measurements are in place to avoid this as much as possible.
3. How might you use the results to benefit the organization, community, schools, or yourself?

As mentioned previously, the LRC will be a place of many activities.  This school resource has recently developed to expand its attention to student academic services.  The results of this evaluation can show the effective use of LRC resources for the academic goals.
