ForAllRubrics How to: Peer- and Self- Assessment


This post will walk you through two ways to use ForAllRubrics to support our most requested feature, student self- and peer- assessment.

  1. With the teacher’s account on the ForAllRubrics Mobile App
  2. With the student’s account on the ForAllRubrics Website

Approach 1: With the teacher’s account on the ForAllRubrics Mobile App

Teachers can use their own teacher account to login into ForAllRubrics Offline on their iPads and  pass the iPads out to the students to use. They can use their one account on multiple iPads.  The students can use the rubric comments field to indicate who did the assessment.  This works especially well, if you aren’t able to give students their own accounts.


Approach 2: With the student’s account on the ForAllRubrics Website

Another approach is to have the students do the self- or peer- assessments with their personal accounts.  For an introduction to student accounts, see the post, “ForAllRubrics How To: Student Journals.”  Below are the steps for enabling your rubrics for student self- and peer- assessment.

When you’re editing a rubric that you want student to access, make sure that you’re in advance mode and the rubric has the “Allow Students to Self/Peer Assess” checkbox selected.  When you select the checkbox a default badge will be created.  You can customize the badge, by clicking on the badge name next to “Assign Badge”.

When the student logs in and goes to the “Classmate Badges” page, she sees all the students in her class (including themselves) and can choose who to assess.

Once the student selects who to assess, they will see the badges that are shared with them and they can choose which badge to assess for.

One thought on “ForAllRubrics How to: Peer- and Self- Assessment

  1. This is a really useful tool. I’d like to be able to hide the evaluator’s name from the students when peer-assessed, though. Anonymous evaluations encourage truthful evaluations and I think that they prevent grouches among classmates who would know exactly who to complain with or about if they don’t agree with their grades. I think only the teacher should be able to see who assessed who.
