Thanks for the post Katie. I think the peer feedback is important to hold the students in a group accountable, but also to give them ideas about how they can improve. Some of my colleagues and I used forms for collecting this data too but it was a pain to manage, especially when we collected formative feedback at several times throughout their time working together. Instead we've been using this website peerfeedback.org that lets you put your students in groups, then collects and automatically organizes the individual feedback so students an see what others think anonymously. I've found it makes me collect more feedback from the kids which they then find useful for their growth.

When I had students do projects in my classes, after giving them their feedback and their overall group grade (say 27/30 for 3 kids) I then had them sit down in their groups and redistribute those marks amongst themselves (so that they each got a score out of 10) according to who did the most work and had the most valuable input etc. This worked well and taught kids about honest reflection and fair discussion about each other's contributions. The kids who scored lower almost always agreed that they had done less work and therefore deserved less credit.

Katie Piper- did you go to Dulaney?

And, thank you for the idea of the roles/skills and keeping a portfolio of progress. I really like the idea of kids choosing which work they feel represents their best for certain criteria.
