The use of peer assessment/review in distance teaching via the Moodle VLE

This project undertook an investigation of the use of peer assessment in distance teaching. After reviewing evidence from within and outside the institution a number of pilot studies were undertaken. The Workshop tool in the Moodle VLE was evaluated. Feedback from students on their experience of using peer assessment/review and the Workshop tool was very positive.

A user guide has been developed with LTS for Module teams to use the workshop tool. A number of modules have started to use the workshop tool for peer assessment.
