Peer Assessment in the Sciences
Peerceptiv, a research-validated peer assessment system, is used at Texas A&M in ENTO 322 – Insects in Human Society, to offer more authentic assessments and reduce cheating. Each session included as many as 200 in-class students and 300 online students from more than 95 different majors. With Peerceptiv used for eight writing and critical thinking assessments each semester, quizzes were devalued and all exams were eliminated. Read this case study to learn more.
