Will you give examples of the different levels of Bloom as applied to their writing assignments? Using BLAST to help them would be useful.
I like the idea of self-evaluation on the first assignment--great!
Excellent idea of *practicing assessment*

I am interested in knowing whether they change how they work on their assignments and not just how well the lab report reflects higher level of blooms

instead of telling them how to use rubri, self-evaluate, ask tehm to describe it while you guide the discussion
can emphasize studet assessment is like what scientists do- have colleagues look at manuscript for feedback before submitting
think about structuring assignment by requiring peer review as part of the preparation- consider more structure built into your rubric
I want to hear how this works out!

Student evaluations of their peers is sometimes problematic, especially if they have bonded. They may give their lab partner the easy treatment - lots of praise and little constructive feedback that might be perceived as negative. So be prepared for the peer assessment to not be that helpful.
Useful book on creating, grading writing assignments is "Engaging Students" by John Bean.
