  •  Fidella Tiew    


The purpose of this project was to introduce peer and self assessment on tutorial class participation to a marketing unit at Curtin Sarawak.  This assessment strategy was introduced with desire to improve class participation and increase student involvement in assessment.  At the end of semester, a questionnaire was used to gather responses from a sample of 77 students about their opinions on the peer assessment practice.  Students agreed that the practice promotes a sense of ownership, engagement and personal responsibility of the learning experience.  But at the same time, many experienced some stress in the assessment process and found it not easy to evaluate their peers.  The study found students do not reject peer assessment strategy.
