WILKINSON, N., 2007. Introduction to WebPA. Loughborough : Loughborough University
This document is an in-depth look at why WebPA should be used to help in
the peer assessment of students, by students, for group working. Both the
history and current development of the project, as well as the reasons why
WebPA should be adopted are covered.
To help develop a better understanding of the WebPA system, a look at the
different sections of the system are included. All of the areas than an
academic would use are introduced and the terms and concepts used in the
system are explained. The scoring algorithm is also broken down and
explained for the current version of WebPA running at Loughborough. This
has been included to try and help explain the full system and how it works.
