This enables the students to assess their own work, or the work of fellow students. Using self-evaluation, the students can check and grade their work. For this, they have to employ criteria that are determined by the Instructor. Peer Assessment means that students can check the work that is turned in by fellow students. They have to employ predetermined criteria, after which they can compare their answers and give constructive criticism.
