  3. 5 Educators who claimed to use peer assessment for formative

    purposes actually used them for summative intention (ArchMiller, 2017; Song et al., 2016) Evidences from past research show significant positive effect of peer assessment on academic performance especially in tertiary settings (Double et al., 2020; www.chuahkeeman.com
  4. 6 A meta-analysis of peer assessment research shows anonymity disrupts

    collaboration and more studies indicate little benefit of anonymity (Strijbos & Wichmann 2018). Rubrics serve as a “scaffolding” measure to assist students in assessing/evaluating their peers. Peer assessment has also been shown to be more accurate when rubrics are utilized (Panadero et al., 2013; Peter et al., 2018) www.chuahkeeman.com
  5. 8 www.chuahkeeman.com Criterion-referenced with or without descriptors. There are a

    set of criteria to follow (e.g. Rubrics, checklist ) Students talk to each other based on a set of questions (dialogue scheme/protocol) and report the outcomes. Reflective type – students write their feedback/report about their peers based on certain focus areas. An overall ranking or rating mechanism (norm- referenced) without criteria set. Students are ranked/rated in comparison with their peers.
