This week, I have been reading "Understanding by Design" by Grant Wiggins and Jay McTighe (2005). This book contains their ideas on a framework to promote teachers to plan efficiently and with a clear purpose. This relates to assessing for understanding and the use of "backward" curriculum design. Using this concept, I critically reviewed the use of peer assessment in Physical Education by looking at how it is generally used in class. In addition to explaining why and how peer assessment is used, I also considered it's impact as an assessment genre in line with Wiggins and McTighes' (2005) work.
I then was able to create a list of recommendations for teachers to consider, and looked into how this method of assessment could be modified within a digital context.
