The authors have previously reported the effectiveness of using self and peer assessment to improve learning outcomes. Its thoughtful use provides opportunities to practise, assess and provide feedback on students graduate attribute development. Our previous research has shown that it is beneficial for teams to use self and peer assessment multiple times a semester to produce regular feedback allowing students to reflect on their performance, then put into practice what they have learned to improve their future performance and overall grade. In this paper we report our investigation as to whether the use of self and peer assessment produces similar benefits in a short-course where teams rather than staying the same, change for different assessment tasks.
