Authentic assessment of group work: issues, models and tools

Activity: Academic Talks or PresentationsOral presentationResearch


Group work is an important part of most courses in higher education. Assessment of group work has always been challenging. Problems include inconsistent marking processes and potentially unfair scoring/grading methods. Peer assessment is commonly used but one of the challenges is: “How can the marks from a lecturer and students within a group be combined in a fair way to produce a single score for each student?”. We report on the critical review of popular tools and the experience of implementing a new model and tool for computing courses at the University of Northampton.
