We have to export the results from Qualtrics, clean the data, do some calculations then input the grades in Canvas. If this idea is in the top 10% by vote next cycle it will be reconsidered.
With the option just described the peer evaluation would be included into the group project and there would no longer be a need for two assignments.
We have done the peer evaluation in survey builders like Qualtrics in the past but it is not the best option for several reasons.
Students working in small groups often learn more and demonstrate better retention than students taught in other instructional formats.
When instructors incorporate group assignments and activities into their courses, they must make thoughtful decisions regarding how to organize the group, how to facilitate it, and how to evaluate the completed work.
