Currently there are three types of evaluation formats:
- Simple Evaluations
Students assess the contributions of their fellow group members by distributing a set number of points (e.g. 100) among them.
- Rubrics Evaluations
The evaluation process is similar to a multiple choice questionnaire; each group member rates the others on a scale called “level of mastery”. iPeer automates the process of peer evaluation and lowers the workload for both instructors and students. With the benefits of automation students can gain feedback more quickly. Additionally, instructors are less likely to lose evaluations and more likely to encourage peer evaluations.
- Mixed Evaluations
