Okayama JALT:

Peer-designed, administered, and evaluated tests

Date: Saturday, October 19th, 2002 Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Joseph Falout, Nihon University, College of Science & Technology

The first part of this presentation will be conducted in a workshop format, where participants will determine the authenticity, value, and validity of student-generated, peer-based assessment. A rationale for such practice will be established against its consequences. Workshop participants will then design a peer-based test assignment, with the resulting constructs providing a context for the case study to follow. The presenter's own experience will then be shown where, with a unanimous vote, a conversation class of second year college students went ahead with such a scheme for their mid-term examination.
