SE Fundamentals

Self and Peer Assessment


How well has each person contributed to the group?


Evaluated over the entire semester


Assessed on
process, not product


Work out a grade for each person (CR, DI
etc
)


Then convert this to a mark out of 20


Submit list of marks to tutor
with justifications


Repeat previous step
until the tutor is satisfied


See guidelines in Blackboard material
