Methods to improve the validity and sensitivity of a self/peer assessment instrument

  title={Methods to improve the validity and sensitivity of a self/peer assessment instrument},
  author={Eric Van Duzer and Flora P. McMartin},
  journal={IEEE Trans. Education},
A process employing both quantitative and qualitative methods was developed to improve the validity and sensitivity of self/peer ratings in assessing teamwork skills. Preliminary results indicate a dramatic improvement in the sensitivity of scales in measuring differences between student skill levels. The data also indicate that the process improves the validity of the ratings in measuring what the developers intended.
