This paper discusses the development of a peer-learning and assessment method involving
undergraduate popular music students in group performance modules. What is learned through
rehearsing and performing in a band is intrinsically collective and this poses problems where we
are obliged to give individual participants discrete scores for their contributions. Peer assessment
may assist in this and improve student learning in group work. An approach that involves band
members assessing each other on the basis of personal attributes is explored.
