Qualitative feedback. Prompt students to share their own written thoughts in a peer feedback format, or as a general reflection on the team or course.

Points allocation

Set an amount of points, per student on the team, to be allocated by students to their peers and self. This question type is useful if you want to enforce student peer ratings on a zero sum scale. Each point given to one student cannot be given to another, so the stakes are raised.
