Evaluation tool – Peer interviews

Evaluation tool – Peer interviews

What is this tool?

Peer interviews involve participants interviewing one another, and thereby hopefully allowing a more natural and honest conversation.

What kind of activities can I evaluate with it?

Peer interviews are particularly effective with secondary students and for interactive workshops or ongoing series of events (astronomy clubs, or courses), but can also be used with primary school students or interested adults and for online content and lectures / presentations.

When should I use it?

This tool is best suited to use at the end of (or after) an event.

What do I need?

  • Pre-prepared prompt questions or topic guide
  • Mechanism to collect responses (audio recorder(s), paper, follow-up discussion or similar)
  • Time and space to hold the interviews
