Building a team-management and improved peer review platform for Ashesi University
PEGAR is a platform designed to streamline team interactions in Ashesi, improve the authenticity of peer reviews and strengthen the credibility of team dynamic grading. The system development methodology used was the SCRUM method as the team dynamic and user input was a continuous iterative process. Regarding this project's scope, PEGAR is a team management and peer review platform intended for the use and progressive exploration within the Ashesi University academic scene. It complements educational team projects by focusing on the team element of the project and not the submissions and direct project grading. The core functionalities include but are not limited to an object team selection algorithm, team task management and a peer review section that generates tailored reviews according to the user and user type. This project resulted in an 80% user acceptance rate for the platform and the revised peer review format. Considering that the primary users are both Ashesi students and teaching faculty, this high acceptance rate is indicative of future development and integration into the Ashesi curriculum.
