Peer Scrutiny is a form of assessment where students’ work is reviewed by other students of the same age group, generally classmates. It is a powerful tool for meta-cognition and developing intra-personal and inter-personal skills. Peer scrutiny can help students develop the ability to offer critical, thoughtful feedback, reflect on feedback and suggestions received, listen attentively, think critically and work in co-operation with others. As they grow more proficient, students often collaborate with the instructor in identifying parameters for assessment and formulating the assessment rubric. Such active participation in assessment helps students gain more ownership of their own learning rather than feeling on the passive, receiving end of assessment.
