  1. Peer Review for Activity in the courses

Faculty/ Inventor: DrSarithaChakrasali               Designation: Professor 

Goals/ objective of methods:

  • Engaging students with assessment criteria and learning outcomes
  • Engagement in active learning
  • Learn from peers
  • Self-assessment skills and professional life

Description of method :

Peer review is a process used for checking the work performed by group of students to ensure it meets specific criteria of the activity. It is an informal audit.

An activity is a group work conducted as part of all regular courses for a content beyond syllabus and the activity in the specific course involves writing programs, analyzing a given problem, solving a problem and so on. In peer review, each group presents their work to other groups. Each group is evaluated by a minimum of 2 other groups on the several criteria like: Design and implementation of activity, Contribution of creative ideas that enhanced the project,  Usage of the appropriate constructs, coding styles & documentation for the project, Group exhibits  friendly, enthusiastic, and positive spirit, Group members are encouraging and complimentary of one another’s. The evaluating group will also add comments such as: What we really liked about this group activity, Ideas for improvement

 Benefits of method:

  • Feedback from peers helps in the development of skills and knowledge
  • Teams produce higher quality results and can improve learning.
  • Disciplinary expertise – writing feedback commentaries deepens understanding

  1. Online Quizes

Faculty/ Inventor: Mrs.S.Srividhya                        Designation: Assistant Professor

Goals/ objective of methods:

  • Social learning promotes discussion and pedagogical impact.
  • Create, promote, and sustain an innovative digital learning culture.
  • Engage in active learning by interacting with others and the course material in their learning.

      Description of method :

Kahoot is a free game based learning platform for teachers of awesome, classroom super heros and all learners.A series of multiple choice questions are created in Data Communication.The format and number of questions are entirely up to the teacher. We can add videos, images and diagrams to your questions to amplify engagement.

Kahoots are best played in a group setting, for example, a classroom. Players answer the questions on their own devices; while games are displayed on a shared screen to unite the lesson.Social learning promotes discussion and pedagogical impact, whether players are in the same room or on the other side of the globe. Assessment is a critical part of any teaching. We need to know if the content sticks or if you need to spend more time on certain topics. Back in the day, we would handed participants a paper questionnaire, then check it and assess. It was all non-interactive, too manual and thus not very accurate. But the worst part is that you’d only get the results after the session – that feedback would’ve been so much more helpful if we could get it in real time instead!

      Benefits of method:

Kahoot provides us a report in excel format which consists of overview of the quiz, final score, question summary and raw report data which can be used to assess the performance  of the players and their level of understanding.
