Copenhagen (DK), December 2017 - Peergrade recently released their guide to Feedback Rubrics, a way to scaffold the feedback process for students. With feedback rubrics, students are empowered to evaluate and reflect on their peers’ work, while providing feedback.
Peergrade is a platform that allows for fast and anonymous feedback; the company is also on a mission to make feedback an integral part of the learning experience.
With the release of their guide to Feedback Rubrics, Peergrade are helping teachers develop a scaffolding method to help their students learn to give feedback. The Feedback Rubrics guide was developed to prove that rubrics can be a useful means of feedback for students using existing rubrics employed by teachers.
The guide goes through the different styles of rubrics, their purposes, and how to create a rubric based on the subject and goal of the assignment. Peergrade also uses feedback reactions, a way for students to respond to the feedback they have received. With feedback reactions, students learn how to reflect and respond to the feedback they are given.
Feedback Rubrics, a concept developed by Peergrade, are an important part of the feedback process on Peergrade. These rubrics differ from the more common matrix rubric because they incorporate three types of questions: yes or no, scale questions, and text response.
Teachers can choose their own combination of questions when creating the Feedback Rubric. Using all three question types allows students to review the work against assignment expectations, while also being able to give effective and personalized feedback.
