iPeer Workshop – facilitating student peer evaluation with ease

Thursday, 13 October, 2016 - 12:30 to 14:00

iPeer is a web-based solution that facilitates student peer- and self-evaluation of group projects. It supports four types of evaluations, namely Point Distribution, Rating Scale, Rubric and Commendation. The web-based application provides a paperless solution for teaching staff to conduct student peer evaluation on group projects in a more efficient and effective way.

If peer evaluation forms a part of your assessment of student group projects, or you are thinking about including a peer evaluation to your assessment, then you need to hear more about iPeer. Join our workshop to explore its potential.

The workshop will cover:

  • reasons for using student peer evaluation,
  • key features in iPeer,
  • workflow and steps for conducting student peer evaluation in iPeer; and
  • the integration between iPeer and Canvas


Learning Objectives




At the end of the workshop, you will be able to:

  • set up student peer groups

  • create an Evaluation Item

  • launch an Evaluation Event

  • view and release grades and comments to students
