DAVIES, P., 2007. Review in computerized peer-assessment. Will it have an effect on student marking consistency? IN: Khandia, F. (ed.). 11th CAA International Computer Assisted Conference: Proceedings of the Conference on 10th & 11th July 2007 at Loughborough University, Loughborough, pp. 143-151.
This short paper details work in progress that identifies an extension to the
CAP Peer Assessment System that permits students to review the marks and
comments of essays they’ve marked, having been allowed to view the
comments of others who have also marked these particular essays.
The development of a compensation process that takes into account high and
low markers is also discussed and whether the introduction of this review
stage negates the necessity for this compensation process in the overall peerassessment
Also presented is a review of the system in automatically allocating a ‘mark for
marking’ that relates directly to the quality of the marker’s work in both
supplying marks and comments that match the quality of the marked essay.
