Project Self and Peer Evaluation

This is a self and peer evaluation I use at the end of each major project. Students are encouraged to be honest; the information they provide is completely confidential.

I often find in using this evaluation that students reflect honestly on the quality of their work, whether they carried their group or did not reach their full potential. In evaluating their peers, students’ information generally aligns with my own observations, but the input is always useful when considering student participation when assessing on a rubric.
