WebPA (Peer Assessment)
Have you tried FeedbackFruits?
WebPA is currently being phased out in favour of a new alternative Peer Assessment product called FeedbackFruits. See our FeedbackFruits help pages for more information.
WebPA is an online peer moderated marking system, which has been designed for students partaking in group work, where an overall group mark is awarded. Each student in group grades theirs and their team member’s performance.
WebPA is accessed through Blackboard. Staff and students that are enrolled on a Blackboard course with a WebPA assignment present will be granted access automatically.
Adding WebPA to a Blackboard course
To use WebPA with a Blackboard course, follow these steps:
Log on to Blackboard Learn
Select the course that you would like to add a WebPA assignment to from the My Courses list
Navigate to the appropriate Content Area of the course and ensure that Edit Mode is switched On
Select Assessments and then select WebPA
Enter the Name and description of the assignment. Make any additional changes and select Submit and Launch
WebPA will now be launched within Blackboard. From here you can create:
Forms – used as a guide for students when grading other student’s work
Groups – students are organised into groups
Assessments – set an assignment for students to submit and peer assess.
