MULTIPLE PERSPECTIVE ASSESSMENT STRATEGIES FOR GROUP WORK
The assessment of group work has long been as issue for educators. The issues surrounding the assessment process for groups include assessing individual student’s input or contribution to a group activity. Considered in conjunction with the issue of providing comprehensive formative feedback, to students involved in group-work, the complexity of the assessment process is clear. This paper outlines the processes used to address the issues associated with assessing students involved in groups or teams. The assessment strategy uses meeting logs as well as peer and student self-assessment to provide multiple perspective assessment as well as providing comprehensive formative feedback on student participation as a team member.
