Abstract

Individual Peer Assessment of Contribution to group work (IPAC) has been widely reported in the literature as successfully addressing problems that arise when students are asked to perform group work, such as complaints of ‘passengers’, and staff and student concerns about fairness of the marks. However, there are multiple variations on how to implement it, which makes it difficult for current and potential users to have an in-depth view and understanding of this assessment method or what works best. A working group was created at University College London (UCL) to look into this methodology (IPAC Consortium). This paper reports the key points of the IPAC methodology, as well as guidelines and recommendations for practice, e.g. make it more useful for students by sharing the feedback. These are informed in the review of relevant literature, discussion with academics and educators, and own experience. We also introduce the software that is currently in use at UCL to implement this practice easily and time efficiently. This is of interest to anyone organizing and running assessed student group work activities, and that is using or might want to use in the future the IPAC methodology.
