Peer assessment becomes a popular and effective approach to enhance students’ critical thinking skills and make them reflect more about their and others’ work. In recent years, several web-based peer assessment systems were developed in order to support peer assessment through technology. These systems have different functionality, characteristics, strengths, and weaknesses. This paper aims at discussing new trends in the development of web-based peer assessment systems by taking a closer look to ten systems. By providing an overview about the systems’ characteristics and its application model as well as discussing the target users and the changing role of teachers and students through web-based peer assessment, this paper contributes in providing an overview of web-based peer assessment, helps to understand the today’s developments, and gives recommendations for new innovations in web-based peer assessment.
