Peer assessment modes within an online student-generated questions learning system

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

In view of the theoretical and empirical support for the use of student-generated questions in education and the numerous useful features of network technology, several online student question-generation learning systems with peer-assessment components have been developed. Since most of the similar existing systems were limited in terms of the types of communication modes used in peer-assessment, three different peer-assessment communication modes were included. Users' perceptions and preference toward various peer-assessment modes were examined. The data collected found that multi-way was the most preferred communication mode and was perceived as providing the most support for learning. In light of the social construction of knowledge and the fact that no existing systems of this type utilizes the multi-way mode, suggestions and implications for system design and developments and future studies are offered.
