Peer assessment or peer evaluation can mean many thingsa means of raising the bar by exposing students to exceptionally good (or bad) solutions; peer grading of homework, quizzes, etc.; and an aid to improving team performance or determining individual effort and individual grades on team projects. For the purposes of the present discussion, peer assessment or peer evaluation is a process in which faculty members adjust individual grades for team assignments by using data collected by asking team members to evaluate each team member. Peer assessment or peer evaluation is not the same as peer grading.
