Feedback form is now closed.
Technology: Using DocAppender in Google forms allows me to establish a grading/feedback rubric with my students and "append" the responses of multiple students to a set of Google docs where students can receive feedback from their fellow students and professor. This allows students to gain experience in both giving and receiving feedback in an anonymous setting. Students can be evaluated on both their project and the quality of feedback they provide to others. Students receiving feedback benefit from the varied perspectives of feedback from many sources.
Evidence: I have used Docappender in my graduate course and found that it improved the quality of work done by student compared to prior semesters. Knowing they would be evaluated by their peers appeared to make students more thoughtful and put in greater effort than when I did not do peer evaluations. Several research papers (citations available if requested) discuss the educational benefits of both giving and receiving peer evaluations. By developing the grading rubric together, students also utilize critical thinking skills in what makes an effective presentation, project or assignment.
Broader Impacts: In public accounting, individuals will both give and receive feedback throughout their careers. Gaining skills in both aspects of the feedback process is critical for future accountants. As a tool, peer assessment facilitates learning and enhances critical thinking skills.
