Peer Assess.info

 

Welcome!

This site houses the explorations into self- and peer-assessment (SAPA) undertaken by Micah Gideon Modell. This method involves the regular collection of self- and peer-assessment data from group members involved in long-term group projects for assessment purposes. Currently this is the home of two versions of self- and peer-assessment software which are integral to supporting the method of SAPA I am investigating. These systems do not include publicly accessible content, so please contact me for more information or return later.

CoLab
This third iteration improves upon the foundations of S2 while adding in a learning component in the form of experiences. Drawing upon the work of my dissertation, I've integrated a simulation of a real-world group work experience for students to react to. This is intended to offer an opportunity for reflection and to support in-class debrief with the instructor.
S2 [SAPA v2]
This second iteration represents a full rewrite of the tool using ruby on rails (the ruby programming language with the rails framework). This version is currently in beta testing. Tutorials are available if you'd like to learn more, or you can email support@peerAssess.info to learn more.
Software Acknowledgements
Continuous Assessment [prototype]
This was the prototype self- and peer-assessment system. It was authored in php over the course of the final three weeks of 2011 and was used to collect data and assist the instructor in five classes spanning three semesters (roughly a year and a half). I called this system Continuous Assessment as it seemed an apt description, but changed it when I learned that already described an alternative method. A design case on this implementation was presented at AECT 2012 (see publications).

If you would like an explanation of the method or if you would like to use this software to implement this method in your own projects, please contact me.
