CATME, Comprehensive Assessment for Team-Member Effectiveness, is an online tool that can be used by College of Engineering instructors to conduct peer evaluations and prepare students to work effectively in teams. It allows student teams or course groups to collaborate on the evaluation process, and helps instructors gather information from students to understand their team experiences. CATME includes several components to accomplish this:
- Peer Evaluation: Perform self and team evaluations to rate processes
- Rater Practice: Rating simulations and training for students to practice evaluations
- Team-Maker: Use criteria from surveys when assigning students to teams
