POEM-COPA Collaborative Open Peer Assessment

This paper describes the Collaborative Open Peer Assessment formative evaluation proposed by the POEM Personalised Open Education for the Masses platform of the Complex Systems Digital Campus UNESCO UniTwin. COPA allows teachers to use open questions and answers to assess the level of the great number of students that is typical of Massive Open Online Courses. Indeed, it offers peer evaluation as well as a highly pedagogic experience: beyond answering questions, students are also asked to actively participate by posing their own questions. However, it has been found during tests that COPA can also be successfully used on much smaller groups ( ∼ 20 students or even less) after face-to-face courses, to help the students revise. COPA has already been used on more than 10 courses, with great feedback from the students. COPA is available as a standalone version. It will also soon be available as an Open-edX plugin, (allowing COPA to be used in any Open-edX based MOOC) as well as under the MOODLE platform, for teachers who would like to use open questions and open answers, rather than the more simple Multiple Choice Questions.
