Garcia-Ros, Rafael
Electronic Journal of Research in Educational Psychology, v9 n3 p1043-1062 2011
Introduction: The main objective of this study was to analyze users' perceptions and convergent validity of peer- and teacher summative assessment using a rubric for students' oral presentation skills in a university context. Method: Peer- and teacher-assessment convergence was analyzed from an analytical and holistic perspective. Students' perceptions of validity and usefulness were determined from a questionnaire developed ad-hoc for this study. Results: Students perceive that the rubric is useful for explaining and clarifying assessment criteria, planning the development of projects, and evaluating their results. They also highlight its validity, integrating the key criteria to consider in the development and presentation of their projects. The measures of agreement between peer- and teacher assessment using the rubric were significant, from both an analytical and a holistic perspective correlation of 0.89. Conclusion: Results show the perceived usefulness and validity of the rubric to promote and support high-level cognitive processes in the development of projects. The rubric is a valid tool for the assessment and rating of student presentations by peers. These findings are discussed in terms of their instructional implications. (Contains 2 tables.)
