How do I assess individual contributions?
Use technology. Promote the use of tools that capture individual contributions through versioning. Examples of tools provided by UIS:
- Google Apps for Education includes Google Docs, an online word processor that allows students to collaborate on documents and tracks who has made changes and additions. Students can log into this service with their UIS NetIDs, so there is no need to create an account. Learn more about Google Apps at UIS.
- Blackboard Wikis
Implement peer evaluation. Allow group members to evaluation one another and themselves and incorporate this evaluation into the final grades for the group project.
