Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper describes the process of using peer assessment and feedback strategy to enhance the effectiveness on learning computer programming. Students worked in pairs to complete learning tasks collaboratively on computer programming. Data were collected using questionnaires and quizzes for further analysis. The findings show that the students were satisfied with the peer as-sessment and feedback strategy in learning computer programming. Moreover, their actual per-formance was also better when compared with that achieved using traditional teaching method. Copyright © 2012 Informing Science Institute.
