Are you looking for an easy and effective way to differentiate grading for group work? It is essential when grading group work that assessment is fair. Students (particularly high-achievers) will soon lose motivation for group work when they see free-riders in their group being awarded the same grade as them for contributing little.
It is also important to involve students in the grading process. This allows them to understand how their grades are constructed and what they must do to improve their score the next time round.
This simple peer assessment form will allow group members to grade each others contribution to the task. The teacher can calculate an average score for each member to determine a participation grade for that task. Or the sum of the grades can be used.
