Buddycheck - Help & Support for Staff

Buddycheck is a tool for peer evaluation of group work contribution. Evaluations are created in the Buddycheck system. Students then complete the evaluation, scoring their own and their peers' contribution to group work.  Buddycheck then calculates an adjustment factor from the students' responses which can then be used to update the mark awarded to each student individually.

Buddycheck is integrated with Minerva and both staff and students must access the tool via their Minerva modules. The university is piloting this tool until early September 2022.
