Peer and Self-Assessment of Teamwork Collaboration Competencies

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapport/proceedingKonferencebidrag i proceedingsForskningpeer review

The ability to collaborate in teams is a central learning objective in a course for students enrolled in the elective 6th semester Civil Engineering Program. Therefore, methods for project management and team collaboration were facilitated through a designated course. The teamwork collaboration competencies of each student are, however, very difficult to assess for external supervisors not being part of the team. As a consequence, a model for peer and self-assessment of this competence was included as a central part of the course assessment.
Each team of 4 persons had a facilitated process of making an Agreement of Collaboration (AC) for the project, including listing of values, norms and rules defining their mutual understanding of good teamwork behavior. The AC was discussed with the supervisors and finally signed by each member of the team.
At the completion of the project period each team member was asked to assess (grade and motivate) their own and their team mates’ compliance with the AC during the project period. The grading process was confidential. The peer assessment contributed to 50 % of the final course grade.
The result of the assessment shows that no students gave higher grades to themselves than the average grade they received from their team mates. There was only a little difference in team mates’ grading of a given fellow team mate. Students expressed that the work with the AC was useful for the teamwork process, and that the peer assessment process had a positive effect on their own and the team’s joint performance.
