Developing and Managing a Peer Forensics Coaching Program.
To deal with the time shortage problem while simultaneously stressing student educational development, a system was designed and implemented to manage a peer forensics coaching program. The program taps the peer coaching potential available on every team and generates academic credit and letter grades for the peer coaches by utilizing a modification of W. Castetter and R. Heisler's management-by-objectives approach. The program involves a preliminary step (declaration of intent); a pre-appraisal planning conference; a performance appraisal; a performance progress review conference; and a post-development review appraisal. Benefits include increased coaching staff and number of hours devoted to coaching in a given semester, educational benefits for both peer coaches and coachees, and a systematic way to appraise peer coaching.
