Both the Computing Curricula 2020 (CC2020) and emerging Computer Science Curricula 2023 (CS2023) guidelines indicate a shift towards competency-based education, where learners apply their knowledge, dispositions and skills in tasks as part of their studies. This approach aims to further enhance graduates’ work-readiness and tackle global issues of unemployment and underemployment among computing graduates. Peer assessment is increasingly used in team software engineering and capstone projects to ensure fair recognition of individual contributions. As competency-based learning becomes more prevalent, peer assessment needs to not only consider project outcomes, but also aspects of knowledge, dispositions and skills. This poster presents preliminary work on how one UK university’s computer science undergraduate degree employs the Team-Q metric to address this challenge.
