Session 10: Assessment

This Review & Feedback session serves two purposes. First, participants have the chance to observe their peers’ near-final activity, and learn how to review and provide critical and substantive feedback to colleagues. Second, participants learn about how they will be graded by the instructors for the final presentation and paper. Participants revisit the major ideas from the course, as a means to identify the key elements of the assessment tool. Participants are introduced to the assessment tool – an observation instrument, which participants will then use to observe their peers present their activity to the public. Instructors of the course may also consider using this observation instrument to assess how participants communicate their scientific knowledge to the public and thus apply their understanding of the key concepts in this course.
