Date: April 24, 2015 Time: 2:00-3:00 pm ET - free to all

Should students grade each other’s work?
When peers are involved in the assessment process it can provide more feedback to students and deepen the learning process. But is it a viable practice? Do students grade accurately? How can educators help students be better reviewers? Join a conversation about peer review and peer grading with National Science Foundation IUSE (Improving Undergraduate STEM Education) project leaders. They will describe their project and what they hope to learn. The discussion will focus on peer review at multiple grade levels and include both computer supported and paper based processes. We will also hear from students actively engaged in student peer review/assessment. Participants will be invited to suggest additional research questions and to consider participating in future research.
