Peer assessment enhances student learning: the results of a matched randomized crossover experiment in a college statistics class.
It has been conjectured that students learn from the practice of peer assessment. Using an online educational platform, the researchers conducted an in-class matched-set, randomized crossover experiment with high power to detect small effects. They established that peer assessment causes a small but significant gain in student achievement.
