Abstract

This paper presents a study of how peer assessment can help students to have effective learning experience. Two undergraduate subjects have been tried out the offline and online peer assessment respectively through flipped classes. In the first subject, students graded the exercises of their peer groups. In the second subject, students developed their own questions for others to answer. For flipped classes, there are pre-class learning material including video clips, presentation slides and exercises provided. Student data including their feedback questionnaire, exercise performance, and question quality are collected for the analysis of their learning experience. The results are encouraging and suggest some further improvement areas.
