What is Buddycheck?

Buddycheck is a tool for peer evaluation of group work contribution.

Evaluations are created in the Buddycheck system and when the group work is done, students complete the evaluation, scoring their own and their peer's contribution to group work.  Buddycheck then calculates an adjustment factor from the students' responses. This can be used to update a mark awarded to students for any group assessment marked via Minerva.

Buddycheck is integrated with Minerva and both staff and students must access the tool via their Minerva modules.
