Student centered assessment

I have thought about several things during this module. It has made be more aware that students can be a bigger part of the assessment process. It does not have to be just the teacher doing the main assessment. I use students to assess each other but only in a very quick way such as thumbs up, or thumbs down. I now realize that they are capable of taking on a bigger role in the assessment process such as filling out the similiar rubric that I will use when grading the project. I will not use the peer assessment as their final grade but it can be a part of their grade. How well did they assess each other? That question can be part of my rubric.
