Abstract: Today’s challenges are better faced together than alone, highlighting that collaborative working and learning are of particular importance in the 21st century. However, research shows that graduates often do not feel well-prepared in this regard. Appropriate measurement approaches might be helpful for students to reflect their collaborative learning processes and to monitor their skill development. The current study describes the process of constructing an instrument for evaluating the quality of peer collaboration in higher education. Based on theoretical conceptions and in-depth observations of student groups, ten initial Behaviorally Anchored Rating Scales (BARS) were developed. Containing unequivocal behavioral anchors for high, medium and low levels of collaboration, the instrument has the potential to support evaluation processes in higher education. The contribution discusses enriching aspects of the approach but also what is still missing, and depicts potential fields of application.
