Peer Assessment project: WebPA

One topic that I'm very interested in, both from a pedagogical perspective as a workload management one, is peer review and peer marking. I was therefor delighted when I was asked to be involved with the WebPA project at Loughborough University. The WebPA project is building a tool to support peer marking of group assignments. The system has been used with great succes in Loughborough for many years, and the project aims to make the tool available as an open source solution that can be implemented at other Universities.

We have just held our first workshop in the University of Derby, preparing for a pilot roll out later this semester. For those interested however, there is also a workshop running in Loughborough on the 5th of March. If you are interested in peer assessment, then I would thoroughly recommend that.
