Guidelines Cogneeto Peer Assessment

Cogneeto - peerScholar Assignment


What will we do?

In this assignment we request each student in the Circle to write a paper to UNICEF.
We will use the process of peer learning to write and reflect in a very creative way.

By giving and receiving feedback to and from two peers we ask each student to critically think and learn together.


Why will we do it?

Collaborative learning in a Learning Circle allows students to learn and work together; the diversity in their countries and backgrounds creates a rich learning environment.

To end a circle with a regular test, in a closed classroom setting, would take away the global dimension of your amazing work in the past 13 weeks.

Supported by the University of Toronto and Pearson, we are offering a new way of assessment, based upon peer assessment and the main idea that also during the assess phase students continue to grow and learn together.

The tool we will be using is called Cogneeto (in Europe known as peerScholar) - We are thrilled to be able to invite you in the first global classroom assignment!


What is Cogneeto?

Cogneeto is an innovative on-line pedagogical tool that supports students’ collaboration, learning and reflection.

Cogneeto facilitates learning through 3 phases;

  1. Create,
  2. Assess
  3. Reflect/revise.

Students first submit their assignment, then they give feedback to their peers work, and finally they reflect on and learn from the peer feedback that they receive.

Please see the following clip that explains some more about Cogneeto / peerScholar.



How will we do it?

Cogneeto/peerScholar is an on-line web based tool that works best in the following browsers:

The create phase closes on early Friday morning May 16th


The Assess Phase.  

This phase opens today Friday morning May 16th. When the 109 students login again (with the same login name and password) they click on the green Assess phase and they will see two randomly selected and anonymously presented peer papers. Their primary task is to give feedback on their peers work. Both by in-line comments and positive and constructive feedback

Students are requested to complete their assessments by Saturday May 24th. 6.00 am (!) 




After reading the instructions and tips click on <save and next>

Now students can give feedback to the work of two peers from the other schools, the assess phase closes on early Saturday morning May 24st.




The Reflect/Revise Phase. 

Once the phase opens (green), at Saturday morning May 24st, students now see the feedback from their peers provided on their draft paper.  

After reading their peers feedback carefully, each student will indicate how useful the feedback was. They will use it to revise and improve their original submission.

As a final step students will be asked to write a short reflection, to justify how and why they revised their work in the light of comments received.

Same procedure, instructions and tips (save) --> review feedback (continue) --> revise my own work (save) --> reflect on my own learning.




When will we do it?


The schools in LC8 and LC9 are spread over 9 time zone's.

We have created the assignment based upon the Dutch/Hungary time.

Call for Papers - International Conference 25 Years CRC


On November 20th 2014 the World celebrates the 25th anniversary of the adoption of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). UNICEF has opened a ‘Call for Papers’ to invite youth to propose one extra Child’s Right to be added to the present Convention. During the 12 weeks of your circle participation you have seen a lot of information about the present Children's Rights and how the world is dealing with it. We ask you to write a paper (1A4/500 words) to UNICEF in which you include:

  • A brief personal introduction

  • Your lessons learned and eye-openers during the Learning Circle process

  • Your own, new, to be added, Child Right and your motivation why you think this specific Right needs to be highlighted.


Instructions and tips

During this first phase you will write your paper. During phase 2, the assess phase you are invited to give feedback on the work of two of your global circle classmates. In phase 3 you will receive  and read feedback from two global circle peers, after which you can revise your work and benefit from your peers suggestions.

Place yourself in the position of the UNICEF committee; they will receive thousands of papers. What can you do to make your paper ‘out standing’?

Remember to click on <save and continue> at the end of each step.
