Abstract

A major challenge in online collaborative learning is assuring that students will become active and contributing members of the learning team in accomplishing the group's goals. One effective means of fostering individual accountability is through the use of peer assessment as students complete specific learning tasks and activities. Self-assessment may also be used to foster learners who reflect on their performance and contributions as members of a virtual learning team. This presentation describes research on the use of peer and self-assessment in higher education Web-based courses using collaborative learning teams. The session will present analyses of key factors related to effective team member performance and a demonstration of the latest features of a web-based Online Assessment System (OAS), an open source tool developed by the researchers to provide effective feedback to learners. The tool provides a convenient means for instructors to create their own peer and self assessment instruments for use in their courses.
