JFA Peer Grading of Assignments
Limited Peer Grading Allowed:
Peer grading shall be allowed when the teacher believes peer grading will be a valuable learning experience for the class. During a peer grading activity, the teacher shall use the activity to help students review class concepts or objectives. If peer grading is allowed, students shall not be asked to publicly reveal either their own grade or the grade of another student.
*KASB recommendation. This is the easiest way to avoid privacy and legal issues, which may arise if students are allowed access to each other’s work and/or grades.
NOTE: If adopted, language on this topic should also be used in board-approved faculty and student handbooks.
Approved: KASB Recommendation – 7/02; 4/07
