The application of educational technology is only as good as the pedagogy that underpins its use.

CHECKLIST FOR DESIGNING AND IMPLEMENTING SPA

If you are considering that your students and unit might benefit from having peer assessment tasks/activities, or alternatively, if you’d like to ensure your current peer assessment practice is achieving the desired outcomes, this checklist is a great starting point.

Developed by Deakin researchers, this framework identifies 6 design clusters to consider (name 6 clusters here). Each cluster is further broken up into design elements – 19 in total. While the 19 design elements might seem a lot to consider, many will be easy to answer and help you understand what, if any, modifications or changes you might need to consider to ensure an optimum learning experience for your students.

To get an idea of how you might like to use this checklist, the original article gives examples of how these elements have been applied across three different units and degree types (see the full article here).
