Collaborative Assessment.
Karr, Jo Ann
This paper discusses the development of collaborative assessment models, using a laboratory study of rocks by middle school students as an example. It focuses on the use of collaborative assessment as part of an ongoing classroom process that involves the teacher, student, peers, and a family member. A schedule of checkpoints can be developed for each evaluation to monitor progress and achievement over the course of a project or unit. Reflective notes about how to improve the next lab can be written right in the lab by both the teacher and students. Rubrics (the criteria to be evaluated) need to be set up for each person examining the designated activity. The selection of different rubrics for multiple tiers of evaluators provides the student with feedback from varying perspectives to regulate how he or she proceeds in future learning activities. Grades can be determined based on either performance in relation to others or performance in relationship to a specific standard. Sample rating charts are included. Contains four references. (MDM)
