International Journal of Instructional Media, v31 n2 p139 Spr 2004
In the past, the quantitative evidences of portfolio assessment have been explored under online instruction. Liu, Lin, and Yuan provide a long-term measure of peer-self, peer-instructor and self-instructor correlation coefficients under networked innovative assessment procedures. Analytical results indicated that undergraduate students could evaluate peers adequately but they over-mark themselves usually. Although they proved the peer assessment better than self assessment under online instruction in a quantitative way, the qualitative evidences of higher order thinking skills were missed in that study. The authors of this pilot study explore the qualitative evidences in order to provide a more clear view about networked portfolio assessment.
