Student derived feedback/assessment rubrics in language education: a preliminary report detailing the use of Wiki’s to build the feedback rubric
Abstract: Peer feedback activities are not always as effective as one might wish, particularly in the English language classroom. With the “red-pen” on paper feedback not being as effective as teachers might hope for, a new approach to completing peer feedback activities is needed. Having peer derived feedback rubrics is one approach to finding a different way to improve peer feedback that has shown potential but it is a particularly time-consuming exercise for the teacher. With Web 2.0 technologies and in this case, Wikis, the peer derived feedback activity is now an exercise that has the potential to change and improve how our students engage with peer feedback, starting with what is to be critiqued. This paper outlines the peer feedback activity using a learner derived rubric and the process to formulate a focused, detailed critiquing rubric in English language classroom.
