Buddycheck Feature Update June 2022
Buddycheck is a peer evaluation tool used to help students to feedback and reflect upon the contribution of themselves and their peers towards groupwork tasks. This can be used to make assessment of groupwork fairer through increased accountability and peer-moderation of grades. It can also be used formatively as a prompt for reflection and source of feedback leading to development of teamwork skills. Buddycheck is intergrated into Canvas, and available for all staff at the University of Liverpool to use.
