This study aims to identify strengths and constraints of using Panopto for peer review of speaking assessment in a postgraduate course. Students submitted their video for assessment via Panopto. Then they worked in groups to provide peer feedback to each other. System data for eight groups of 20 students were collected to analyse observational measures of postgraduate student behaviour during participation in video-based formative assessment. The pre- and post-intervention student survey responses and pre- and post-interview transcripts of 6 teachers were also collected for data analysis. The outcomes of this study are twofold: 1) Panopto allowed for time-stamped, specific, diagnostic and contextualized comments, helping students identify their strengths and areas for improvement in academic speaking; 2) Panopto was considered user-friendly and manageable, but its implementation could be pedagogically improved by providing more detailed instructions to students and in-class demonstration to help them make specific and in-depth comments and facilitate peer learning. The findings may provide insights into supporting teachers to implement the video-based formative assessment.
