DAVIES and LEWIS, 2004. Computerised Peer-Assessment that Supports the Rewarding of Evaluative Skills in Essay Writing (CAP) and Programming (Coursemaker). IN: Proceedings of the 8th CAA Conference, Loughborough: Loughborough University
This short paper details recent innovations in the development of peer-assessed environments that support the automated rewarding of the higher order skills of evaluation in two areas of higher education, namely essay writing and computer programming.
The work builds upon past uses and developments of the CAP (computerised assessment by peers) system that has been used as a means of providing a safe, anonymous and qualitative method of assessing student peer-assessment for the past four years within the School of Computing at the University of Glamorgan, South Wales.
