Self-Grading and Peer-Grading

Rubrics-based grading to create academic reflection and dialogue

Context

When engaged in writing tasks, students must grade their own work, and have a partner grade their work, before submitting it to the teacher for final review. This enables students to reflect upon their work and revise as needed. In addition to improving student output and metacognitive knowledge, this practice can also lead to student dialogue around why a different score was given between the creator and team member.
