Abstract

The potential benefits of peer learning have long been recognized and are especially relevant today when lifelong and life-wide learning is prevalent. In this paper, we propose to incorporate peer assessment as part of the learning activities using an on-line environment. Participants are required to conduct group projects which entail an intra-group reflection by critically evaluating their own progress and to perform an inter-group assessment by giving feedback and grades to their peer’s assignment via the web. Qualitative and quantitative analysis will be conducted at the end of the semester to examine if peer assessment can improve learning and group dynamics.
