Encouraging co-responsibility: a tool for students’ involvement in the assessment process

Research output: Chapter in BookChapterResearchpeer-review


There are many questions to answer about how we can make assessments more inclusive and participative for students and teachers. This is especially the case in the current remote teaching context, which has shaken our ways of doing things, teaching habits and attitudes. Most teachers and lecturers aim for a balance between making assessments inclusive and safe, fair and authentic, and valid and real. They also aim to ensure student participation and keeping students motivated during the transition from an on-campus teaching scenario to an online/distanced process. This paper describes a tool developed to facilitate students’ peer and self-assessment and complement traditional teacher-based approaches. We include a short example showing how this tool could be used, its features and adaptations for face-to-face and online teaching settings and how it benefits both students and teachers. A group of teachers at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona designed the tool, and students enrolled in Education Studies were participants in its testing.
