Self and Peer Assessment​

Using the Self and Peer Assessment tool within Blackboard is not advised, as it poses some problems if not all students participate. For the lecturer, assessing the reviews is quite complex. It is advised to use Peerceptiv in these cases.

If the Self and Peer Assessment option is not shown under Assessments, head to Course Management > Customization > Tool Availability and make sure the Self and Peer Assessment tool is visible, by ticking the boxes as shown below. Remember to click Submit at the bottom of the page to save the ticked boxes!

Adding a Self and Peer Assessment to a Content Area

  • Open the course to which you want to add the Self and Peer Assessment.

  • Make sure that the Edit Mode in the top right corner is set to On.

  • Navigate to the Content Area where you want to create the Self and Peer Assessment or create a Content Area by clicking on the "+". If you cannot see the "+", the Edit Mode is set to Off.

  • Click on Assessments and click on Self and Peer Assessment
