Teacher Perspectives: Assessing groups

JoEllen Ambrose: I ask them to evaluate their partner’s strengths and weaknesses to get at the productivity in their group. I definitely have a sense walking around the room [of] what’s been worked with or what hasn’t been worked with. I don’t have an objective way of doing that, but I have a sense of what they will bring into that essay question based on that. Also, the product of the debate was the consensus so I’m not going to evaluate some of those behavioral pieces in this particular activity because the goal was consensus.
