I am a big fan of self and peer evaluation. No matter what digital tools I use to give students feedback faster, there is still only one of me. If you provide students a rubric, having them assess themselves and their peers against the rubric helps to give them a better understanding of the assessment.
Distributing a rubric template through Google Classroom allows students to evaluate themselves and their peers.
I created a spreadsheet that helps you design rubrics and assess students. Start with http://alicekeeler.com/listrubrics. Use the Add-On menu to choose “Copy of listRubrics” and choose the “List rubrics” option. This will reveal the sidebar menu.
In Google Classroom, attach the rubric you generated as “Create a copy for each student.” On the first tab of the spreadsheet is a place for students to list themselves and the students who they are peer evaluating.
Students will click on the “Create Rubrics” button in the sidebar. This creates a copy of the rubric for each student they are evaluating. The student then finds the tab of each student, provides comments and evaluates against the rubric.
If the students have the other students email addresses they can click the “Email Rubrics” button in the sidebar menu.
Since the rubrics are shared through Google Classroom the teacher has access to all of the self and peer evaluations through Google Classroom and in the assignment folder in Google Drive.
