    Hello and welcome to #espechat! I am Sara Wood in NYC (PreK-5) and tonight we will be discussing Peer Assessment. Who do we have with us?
  • ElemPE1 Sep 11 @ 8:01 PM EDT
    We all have those students that struggle to "get it". As a teacher, I always ask myself what else I can do. So, I started a "Check in, check out" program with a few students. It has helped our bond, and thought it might also help others #ProudTeacher #physed #pegeeks #espechat

    Q2: What activities/skills are best for younger students to peer assess? What does this peer assessment look like or sound like? #espechat
  • EPEWCP Sep 11 @ 8:13 PM EDT
    A2: I use it with most lessons. Today was if their partner was following directions the first time. W my Ks it is as simple as a thumbs up if they notice the one thing they are looking for in their partner. #espechat
  • SchleiderJustin Sep 11 @ 8:14 PM EDT
    #espechat
  • MsTuckerRocksPE Sep 11 @ 8:14 PM EDT
    A2: I now teach middle schoolers but when I had younger students I had them peer asses on striking, dance, and team work. Students would observe the elements of each and complete a rubric based on what they saw demonstrated. #espechat
    • SaraWoodPE Sep 11 @ 8:12 PM EDT
      Q2: What activities/skills are best for younger students to peer assess? What does this peer assessment look like or sound like? #espechat
  • MrLucasPE Sep 11 @ 8:14 PM EDT
    A2: We called it peer reflection and work on giving constructive feedback the right way. Here is an activity I did last year. Student did a great job with this https://t.co/lqPPGXU34R #espechat
  • PerkettPE Sep 11 @ 8:15 PM EDT
  • SaraWoodPE Sep 11 @ 8:15 PM EDT
    A2: I think tasks that have one thing to look for are best. Example: can your partner dribble while keeping their eyes forward? S would assess with a thumbs up/down. #espechat
  • PhysEdApps - Moderator Sep 11 @ 8:15 PM EDT
    A2) I do peer assessment with just about everything. K/1 Ss need to look for 1 item when assessing. #ESPEchat

  • SchleiderJustin Sep 11 @ 8:16 PM EDT
    A2 TBH it is hard to peer assess the affective domain. I have done it in the psychomotor domain years ago. #espechat

  • ElemPE1 Sep 11 @ 8:16 PM EDT
    I have Ss raise fingers. If they have all 2 or 3 parts (which is projected), they raise that amount of fingers. Example: hopping (1 foot, arms out by side) #espechat

  • mslindman Sep 11 @ 8:16 PM EDT
    A2: I take photos of my kiddos (APE) doing overhand throw as a group we circle each of the cues that the athlete is performing. #espechat
  • CoachWilliamsPE Sep 11 @ 8:17 PM EDT
    A2 K-2 I have them do thumbs up or circle on paper & say good job partner on skills like underhand throw. I have them watch for 1 cue. 3-5 I have them assess one cue on most 1st lesson of a unit. Its easier when they are looking for one thing #espechat
    In reply to @SaraWoodPE
  • PerkettPE Sep 11 @ 8:17 PM EDT
    A2) I would feel comfortable using it for small, 1 criteria skills where they could circle the answer. Like Sara said, โ€œcan they dribble with 1 hand.โ€ Circle: YES or NO #espechat
  • SaraWoodPE Sep 11 @ 8:17 PM EDT
    Hi Justin! I agree, affective is challenging #espechat
    In reply to @SchleiderJustin
  • SaraWoodPE Sep 11 @ 8:18 PM EDT
    On to Q3. #espechat
  • SchleiderJustin Sep 11 @ 8:18 PM EDT
    Do they enjoy being analyzed by their peers? #espechat
    In reply to @mslindman
  • lindsraymondHPE Sep 11 @ 8:18 PM EDT
    A2: When teaching elementary, I found it was smoothest for younger Ss (PreK-1st) to peer assess behaviors such as following safety rules. 2nd-5th graders when guided and with practice were able to peer assess skills such as overhand and underhand throwing, striking, etc #espechat
  • SaraWoodPE Sep 11 @ 8:19 PM EDT
    Q3: What activities/skills are best for older students to peer assess? What does this peer assessment look like or sound like? #espechat
  • EPEWCP Sep 11 @ 8:19 PM EDT
    I have them do this when they are working in groups. Each time something happens or is said in their group that makes them feel glad to be a part of it they flash a thumbs up. And the reverse as well. I start this in 2nd grade. #espechat
    In reply to @SchleiderJustin

  • EPEWCP Sep 11 @ 8:21 PM EDT
    A3: W my older Ss I use if for most everything. Today was a coaching form that had prompts about how their partner was using space in a tag game. #espechat
  • CoachWilliamsPE Sep 11 @ 8:21 PM EDT
    A3 I have them assess one cue just like the younger Ss. I have them do peer assessments at the start of almost all units. They assess each other a total of 10 during the lesson because they are trying to perform the cue at least 8/10 times #espechat
    In reply to @SaraWoodPE
  • SaraWoodPE Sep 11 @ 8:21 PM EDT
    A3: I am more willing to give my older students paper and pencil to record the assessment. I have done this in @phys_educator's jump rope ladder. Peer coaches approve when a student has completed a jump #espechat
  • PerkettPE Sep 11 @ 8:22 PM EDT
    A3) I feel depending on your teaching style and ability of your students, the possibilities are endless here. I donโ€™t use it much, but curious to see what others think. #espechat
  • SaraWoodPE Sep 11 @ 8:23 PM EDT
    giving one cue does make it so much easier for them to give good assessments #espechat
    In reply to @CoachWilliamsPE
  • jcmonluxpe Sep 11 @ 8:23 PM EDT
    Thanks, I was having a hard time keeping Ss accountable for how they were making each other feel in the moment. No words are spoken about it, but it really keeps Ss focused on the social interactions even when they are not the focus. #espechat

    awesome! #espechat
    In reply to @EPEWCP
  • SchleiderJustin Sep 11 @ 8:23 PM EDT
    A3 for the older ss I have done a three person rotation with paper and pencil. I don't attach a grade to it though. I think that is necessary. #espechat
  • SaraWoodPE Sep 11 @ 8:23 PM EDT
    this is so sweet! #espechat

    A2) for younger students I am more comfortable with them peer assessing basic movement concepts #espechat
  • lindsraymondHPE Sep 11 @ 8:23 PM EDT
    A3: Older students (9-12) are able to peer assess most activities. Rubrics, with very clear, specific elements, are very useful tools. I use a scale of 0-4 and keep it standard-based and consistent. Ss are easily able to peer assess in activities such as gallery walks. #espechat
  • framed01 Sep 11 @ 8:24 PM EDT
    Frances from Campbell, TK-5 sorry I am late. #espechat
  • SaraWoodPE Sep 11 @ 8:24 PM EDT
    yes!!!! rubrics are something that can help them assess appropriately #espechat
    In reply to @lindsraymondHPE
  • MrLucasPE Sep 11 @ 8:24 PM EDT
    A3 Lately I end each class by asking the students "what was one thing that we did really well today" "What was one thing we could improve on?" and "What is one more thing we did really well today" We discuss the answers. Must include class as a whole. #Team #espechat

    Q4: How do you ensure students know HOW to assess each other? #espechat
  • SaraWoodPE Sep 11 @ 8:26 PM EDT
    A2+3 I think it's also so important to be VERY clear on what students should assess. If you have a rubric, making sure students know WHAT the different levels of accomplishment look like #espechat
  • ElemPE1 Sep 11 @ 8:26 PM EDT
    A3 I have GIFs projected with circles around body parts so students know what they are looking for. Ex: I circle the knee to make sure the legs are bent when jumping. Thumbs up or down. #espechat

  • SaraWoodPE Sep 11 @ 8:27 PM EDT

  • SchleiderJustin Sep 11 @ 8:27 PM EDT
    I am loving how people are understanding that peer assessment has to have some sort social or affective check in. Especially as our students get older and more aware of the differences in their skill levels and bodies. #espechat
  • CoachWilliamsPE Sep 11 @ 8:28 PM EDT
    A4 on my assessment I have an example and I demonstrate with a group of Ss. Last yr I made a video with a group of Ss and I recorded them showing how to do it #espechat
    In reply to @SaraWoodPE
  • EPEWCP Sep 11 @ 8:28 PM EDT
    A4: I explicitly teach how to peer assess. It is a huge part of my program. By the time my Ss that I have had since the beginning are in the upper grades, they have it down. They teach the new Ss. They are always so confused that others don't know how. (1/2) #espechat
  • SaraWoodPE Sep 11 @ 8:29 PM EDT
    A4: I demonstrate what the peer assessment should look like. Something I want to add this year is sentence prompts so that students can give MORE than just a thumbs up/down. #espechat
  • EPEWCP Sep 11 @ 8:29 PM EDT
    A4: I give sentence stems for how to frame constructive feedback as well as rubrics for exactly what they are looking for. #espechat (2/2)

    In reply to @EPEWCP
  • lindsraymondHPE Sep 11 @ 8:30 PM EDT
    A4: Practice. A lot of practice. Trial & error. Explaining and re-explaining misunderstandings. Explaining that it's not about being "nice" or "mean" We're helping each other grow! It's okay not to get it perfect & that by assessing honestly we ARE helping each other #espechat
  • MrMitchellPE Sep 11 @ 8:30 PM EDT
    A4 this is always a dilemma for me but with anything, the more practice they receive, the more successful they can be #espechat
  • EPEWCP Sep 11 @ 8:30 PM EDT
    The sentence prompts made a HUGE difference. I start with them in the second half of 1st grade. #espechat

  • CoachWilliamsPE Sep 11 @ 8:36 PM EDT
    A5 Some of my Ss do. I encourage them to tell their team if they miss a cue that we are not focusing. Ex: we are assessing on stepping w/opposite for but they didn't follow through the Ss should tell their classmate. K-2 Ss always say good job partner #espechat
    In reply to @SaraWoodPE
  • lindsraymondHPE Sep 11 @ 8:36 PM EDT
    Q5: With older Ss, it's much easier for them to understand objective, specific feedback as compared to simple, general feedback ("I liked it"). Feedback and the ability to give it comes with practice. Teacher demonstrating helpful (kind) feedback is also very effective #espechat
  • ElemPE1 Sep 11 @ 8:36 PM EDT
    I use these same ones! Except I use "I like that you.. " to make it positive and motivating #espechat

  • CoachWilliamsPE Sep 11 @ 8:38 PM EDT
    A5b Assessing is giving them fb on what they did, but I think when you asked the 1st part of the question I was thinking about verbal fb. #espechat
    In reply to @SaraWoodPE
  • EPEWCP Sep 11 @ 8:38 PM EDT
    A5b: I think so. Assessing to me does not require you telling the other person being assessed anything. I think the feedback part is different but should always be included. Otherwise, what is the point? #espechat
  • framed01 Sep 11 @ 8:39 PM EDT
    A4 I demo how to assess. Review video with groups early on and then meet with ss later in the year as we assess each other. #espechat
  • SaraWoodPE Sep 11 @ 8:39 PM EDT
    a5 It's so easy to build in feedback to assessment. I think the first step is to establish the assessment part, THEN add in feedback. teach it step by step #espechat
  • EPEWCP Sep 11 @ 8:39 PM EDT
    I used to and decided to change it because I didn't want to put value attached to it. I didn't want students to think that if they didn't get it yet, that it was bad. #espechat
    In reply to @ElemPE1
  • lindsraymondHPE Sep 11 @ 8:39 PM EDT
    A5b: Yes. A difference btwn students giving feedback and assessing. Feedback can be used as a tool during process of learning a skill. (ie practicing overhand throwing with a partner, 1 student can give specific feedback not as an assessment. It can be less intimidating #espechat
  • SaraWoodPE Sep 11 @ 8:40 PM EDT
    Q6: Who can benefit from peer assessments? #espechat
  • EPEWCP Sep 11 @ 8:40 PM EDT
    A6: EVERYONE! All Ss and me! #espechat
  • MrLucasPE Sep 11 @ 8:41 PM EDT
    I do! Listen in for the best instructional feedback #espechat
  • framed01 Sep 11 @ 8:42 PM EDT
    What an informative video for the how to assess an overhand throw. #espechat
  • CoachWilliamsPE Sep 11 @ 8:42 PM EDT
    A6 Ss and teacher. It helps Ss pay more attention to the skill which will help them on their turn to demo. Its another way to formative assess your Ss. #espechat
    In reply to @SaraWoodPE
  • lindsraymondHPE Sep 11 @ 8:42 PM EDT
    A6: Student/Student relationships & Student/Teacher relationships can benefit from peer assess. The Ss see the T trusting them more & the Ss begin to build their class culture as guided by the T. Peer assess leads to a positive class culture & the Ss end up enjoying PE! #espechat
  • SaraWoodPE Sep 11 @ 8:43 PM EDT
    A6 when students give feedback to each other, they get to use their own words. this can give me new ways of explaining in "kid language" that I didn't realize before #espechat
  • ElemPE1 Sep 11 @ 8:43 PM EDT
    Everyone for sure. Teaches accountability and hits many affective objective as well as psychomotor and cognitive. #espechat

    Q7 is a scenario question. Friendly reminder: you can use as many tweets as you need to answer a question. #espechat
  • SaraWoodPE Sep 11 @ 8:47 PM EDT
    Q7: There are students in your class who are giving their peer feedback or scores that are inaccurate. How do you approach these students? #espechat
  • EPEWCP Sep 11 @ 8:49 PM EDT
    A7: This does happen. More that I would care for. My classes understand the reason for it. When I teach this, I make a huge deal about how the only way to truly learn is from accurate info. In younger grades, (pt 1) #espechat
  • lindsraymondHPE Sep 11 @ 8:50 PM EDT
    A7: A time in class when Ss are working together I would go over & help them assess. Not by highlighting they were wrong but by asking WHY and having them explain. Could be an easy clearing of misunderstanding. When Ss know you care & pay attention, sometimes that helps #espechat
  • EPEWCP Sep 11 @ 8:50 PM EDT
    A7: I have groups of 3 to help negate this when they are still learning how to peer assess. At the end of every lesson they meet w their partner and actually go over how helpful and accurate they thought they were. Ss know this is part of the routine and it helps (pt 2) #espechat
  • CoachWilliamsPE Sep 11 @ 8:50 PM EDT
    A7 1st review what they should be looking for.2nd watch them assess the Ss.3rd Do one of the assessments.4thWalk through the assessments by asking ? like did she step with the opposite foot.5th If I find out they are doing it on purpose then I will talk with the Ss #espechat
    In reply to @SaraWoodPE
  • EPEWCP Sep 11 @ 8:51 PM EDT
    A7: I also meet w Ss indiv if it continues and review the process again. Most times it is because they just weren't paying close enough attention. (pt 3) #espechat

    A7 This is a tough one. I stop the whole class and have a very 2 students accurately assessing and telling them how proud I am for them telling the truth bc we are a team and want everyone to be successful. I even have "we are teachers and learners" posted on my wall. #espechat

    I added this in a while ago because honesty was becoming a prob and I needed a way to hold them accountable when I couldn't get to every group. #espechat

    Q8 What tips would you give to a teacher who is beginning to use peer assessment in their classes? #espechat
  • SaraWoodPE Sep 11 @ 8:55 PM EDT
    A7 appropriately pairing students can also help students assess appropriately or learn to assess from others guiding them #espechat

    A8: Start small. Pick one lesson to add it into. Spend a lesson teaching how to do it. #espechat

    A8 It takes practice. I use it so often that most of Ss remember how to do from the previous. We use it for most units so it gets easier as the yr goes on. Also, we are able to use the same form for all the skills #espechat

    A8: Don't expect a lesson in peer assessment to go perfectly! Remember that some of the best lessons are created on the spot from teachable moments! #espechat

    Start with 1 cue. Use visuals. Circle critical elements. Stress honesty. Demonstrate how to peer assess in front of whole class prior. #espechat

    A8: Be patient! :) Don't expect perfection and prepare for misunderstandings. Be clear! Building peer assessment into class routine can be a great way to build understanding. It takes time. Once they get it, as with most things... it's much simpler and they find it fun! #espechat
