In this section of the hub, you will find a short guide developed specifically for Maynooth University staff on the topic of ‘Self and peer assessment’. This guide offers some definitions of self and peer assessment, briefly considers research-informed thinking about self and peer assessment, outlines why self and peer assessment might be beneficial and provides practical advice around what to consider if one is implementing self and/or peer assessment. The guide includes some suggestions around what readers might want to do next, under this topic, and a list of references to resources and research.
The Maynooth University guide is followed by a curated list of resources, some of which have been developed specifically for Maynooth University, and others which we have sourced directly, or adapted, from other HEIs. Each resource has a short description and includes a note of the home institution from which the resource was sourced, where applicable.
