MyBeckett's self/peer assessment tool is made of two parts:

  • Answering assessment questions set by your tutors. 
  • Evaluating your own answers or those of your peers. Your tutors will be able to see the marks/feedback you provide during the evaluation period.

Please note, this is different to a Turnitin PeerMark assignment.

Answering assessment questions

  1. Locate your assessment within your MyBeckett module. You can identify a self/peer assessment in your module as it's icon shows a group of three people next to a tick symbol. The title, instructions and dates will vary according to your task.
