WestEd, a non-profit educational research agency, would like to invite high school teachers to access a free online peer assessment tool called Peerceptiv ( Peerceptiv is a tool that allows students to receive quick and actionable feedback from their peers. The purpose of the study is to test a prototype of the tool and get your feedback about how helpful and useful it is in supporting classroom learning in science.

WestEd is inviting high school teachers to join a research study that will examine the feasibility of the online peer assessment tool. The study will take place sometime between October through November 2021 (we would schedule a time that works best for you and your students). The benefits of the study are that teachers can use this innovative tool for free during the study. In addition, the tools are based on learning science research that suggests that students' learning is enhanced by engaging in the peer assessment activities, which the tool facilitates. Finally, teachers would receive a stipend of up to $300 for participating in the study.
