The value of peer assessment for learning has been underlined by many researchers, while reflection is considered a crucial element of effective learning. The present study explores the learning impacts of an originally developed peer assessment protocol that integrates peer assessment with critical reflection. Based on the Behaviorally Anchored Rating Scale (BARS) version of the Comprehensive Assessment of Team Member Effectiveness (CATME) instrument (Ohland, Loughry, Woehr et al., 2012), the protocol has been applied on a teamwork assessment designed for an undergraduate International Business class. To stimulate meaningful student engagement with the peer evaluation and support the development of collaborative competence, students were required to submit a peer assessment form together with an individual reflection upon the teamwork experience, and specifically upon their own knowledge, skills and abilities demonstrated and their contributions to the team’s work. Throughout the 6-year history of the course, more than 100 student reflections have been collected, shaping an interesting pool of different perspectives and perceptions of teamwork. The authors analyzed those reflective essays using content analysis methodology. Findings reveal the impact of the teamwork experience and peer assessment on students’ learning, shed more light on the key points identified by the students in relation to peer assessment, and provide implications for future research and implementation.
