Peer assessment and team work as a professional skill in a second year economics unit

Geoffrey Crockett and Vasanthi Peter
Curtin University of Technology
This paper reports the results of the introduction of a peer review component of assessment in the context of building teamwork as a professional skill. Amongst the motivations for the change of tutorial structure and the change to the assessment procedures was a desire to make the tutorials more student oriented, and to make them more interesting. A related motivation was to improve the student attendance at the tutorial session, and overall to improve the students' knowledge of the subject matter covered in the second year macroeconomics unit.
