A Simulated Peer-Assessment Approach to Improving Student Performance in Chemical Calculations
Scott, Fraser J.
Chemistry Education Research and Practice, v15 n4 p568-575 Oct 2014
This paper describes the utility of using simulated, rather than real, student solutions to problems within a peer-assessment setting and whether this approach can be used as a means of improving performance in chemical calculations. The study involved a small cohort of students, of two levels, who carried out a simulated peer-assessment as a classroom activity and their improvement in performance and attitude towards the activity was measured. The results demonstrate that a simulated peer-assessment approach can be successfully used in lieu of standard peer-assessment and that student attitudes favour the simulated approach.
