Self, Peer and Group Assessment in E-Learning
Roberts, Tim S.
Information Science Publishing
Contributions from researchers and practitioners involved in self, peer and group assessment in an online or e-learning environment investigate how assessment practices can be used to assist and improve the learning process. The book describes the principal characteristics of self, peer and group assessment; presents guidelines for effective implementation, highlighting both benefits and problems; and provides examples in a variety of subject areas from secondary school students in different countries, large undergraduate classes, and Master's level courses. The aim is to encourage the development of higher-quality learning and assessment practices, ones in which the learners themselves assume a greater responsibility for, and play a more active role in, their own learning. Thirteen chapters include: (1) Self, Peer, and Group Assessment in E-Learning: An Introduction (Tim S. Roberts); (2) A Case Study in Peer Evaluation for Second Language Teachers in Training (Pamela L.
