Good practice guides and tip sheets have been developed to support quality in both curriculum design and teaching practice. Good practice guides provide
a pedagogical overview and tip sheets provide you with practical strategies and ideas for implementation. Links to assignment-related resources are provided below.
This tool allows students to assess their peers’ collaboration skills or group work contributions using criteria, specified by the teacher. Students can allocate feedback and grades for their peers. Steps can also be built-in for students to reflect on
their own feedback.
This tool is designed to be used when students are providing feedback on the contribution of peers. This could be feedback on artefacts submitted elsewhere in FLO (eg, a report or video) or a performance of a task outside of FLO (eg. a presentation or
dance). It can be combined with the Peer
Review tool (in subparts of the assessment) to allow for students to provide feedback and/or marks on a submission, as well as on the contribution.
This tool allows students to provide feedback and/or marks on tasks submitted by their peers according to criteria specified by the teacher. Marking and feedback activities can be allocated for individuals or via groups. Steps can be built in for students
to reflect on their own feedback. The Peer Review tool can be combined with the Group Member Evaluation tool (in subparts of the assessment) to allow students to also provide feedback on the quality of the contribution to a group task,
not just the task itself.
The table below provides an overview of both tools and how they are commonly used.
The decision tree below provides guidance to which tool to select based on your desired outcome.
Adding Group Member Evaluation or Peer Review to your topic
Either tool can be added to your topic by adding the activity as an external tool. In step 6 of the linked instructions,
you will be able to select either Group Member Evaluation or Peer Review. Once your chosen tool has been added to your FLO site, follow the step-by-step set-up instructions as prompted.
Editing an existing assignment
Once you have created the FeedbackFruit activity you may want to edit some of the settings in the activity.
It’s important to ensure that you use the correct edit buttons as there are two.
Click on the activity (note: no need to turn editing on)
If you want to make a change to the settings of the activity then use the three dots
The only time you will need to use the settings cog is if you need to change the name of the activity.
If you do want to change the name of the activity it’s important to note that you will need to change this in two places.
You don’t need to use the three dots for:
Feedback to students
Grading or grading adjustments
Group contribution actions
Can we grant extensions using FeedbackFruits?
It is possible to grant extensions for students (individuals or specific groups) using the tool. However, it is important to keep in mind that extensions could possibly impact the next steps/deadlines. Also, TCs need to keep in mind that if the
students have used the assignment extension request tool, this will not integrate automatically with FeedbackFruits, therefore TCs will need to manually create these extensions within the tool.
If you need at elbow support, you can access direct help via the chat function in the bottom left-hand corner of the FeedbackFruits activity. In-activity support includes introductory video guides and links to the FeedbackFruits Help Centre and the Chat
with support. Alternatively, you can contact the Online Learning and Teaching team in your college.
