Abstract Title: Peer and Expert Evaluations of Students' Video Lab Reports
Abstract: Peer evaluation of student work is an important component of many classroom strategies, especially in large-enrollment courses. Georgia Tech has run three semesters of an introductory mechanics course in which students created short video lab reports, then evaluated their peers' videos in a scaffolded peer evaluation process. A good peer evaluation process should produce instructor-like final grades, but peer evaluation also affords an opportunity to give students experience with authentic scientific communication practices. We investigate changes in student evaluative behaviors over the course of one semester by comparing student evaluations to expert evaluations of a large set of student-produced videos.
