Abstract

In scalable online courses like MOOCs, with potentially many participants, external expert assessment of course work becomes more challenging and costly. In that context, peer assessment can potentially play an an important role in online teacher training, as it provides numerous potential benefits. However, peer assessment can fulfill its potential only provided that peer and expert assessment scores are quite similar (i.e. they need to demonstrate inter-rater reliability) and the qualitative feedback provided is useful. The report on Peer versus Expert Assessment looks at peer assessment as a viable approach to assess learning achievements in online courses. Peer assessment is compared with instructor/expert assessment in the context of an online course developed for the TeachUP project. Teach-UP ("TEACHer Upskilling Policy experimentation") is a policy experimentation, co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union aiming at supporting policymakers, teacher trainers, training providers and other teacher training stakeholders in finding ways to scale up effectively and efficiently online teacher training.
