An Overview of Peer-Assessment: The Benefits and Importance

Abstract


Learner’s language proficiency and knowledge need to be evaluated based on different methods (Orsmond, Merry & Reiling (2000); Pope 2005). Authentic assessment attained by using real evidence is also achievable (Barbera 2009 and Barrett 2007). This authentic assessment can be achieved through cooperation between teachers and learners.

Although there are some unrecognized aspects, peer-assessment is considered to be effective (Shepard 2000 and Topping 1998).
