This project undertook an investigation of the use of peer assessment in distance teaching. After reviewing evidence from within and outside the institution a number of pilot studies were undertaken. The Workshop tool in the Moodle VLE was evaluated. Feedback from students on their experience of using peer assessment/review and the Workshop tool was very positive.

A user guide has been developed with LTS for Module teams to use the workshop tool. A number of modules have started to use the workshop tool for peer assessment.
