For each task, enter the peer assessment factor for each individual team member (e.g. 0.5 for 'half' contribution or 1 for 'full' contribution) in the table below. The lecturer awards a shared group mark, which is adjusted according to the peer assessment factor and the lecturer’s discretion. The individual team member's mark is based on the group mark multiplied by the peer assessment factor (eg. x 0.5 for 'half' contribution or x 1 for 'full' contribution). Task 1 <Team Member’s Name> Peer Assessment Factor (fill in with value from 0 – 1) <Team Member’s Name> <Team Member’s Name>
