How can assessment practices be used to assist and improve the learning process? Self, Peer and Group Assessment in E-Learning attempts to answer this question by bringing together 13 contributions from prominent researchers and practitioners actively involved in all aspects of self, peer and group assessment in an online or e-learning environment. It describes the principal characteristics of self, peer and group assessment, and presents guidelines for effective implementation, highlighting both benefits and problems. It also provides examples in a variety of subject areas from secondary school students in different countries, large undergraduate classes, and Master's level courses. The primary aim of Self, Peer and Group Assessment in E-Learning is to encourage the development of higher-quality learning and assessment practices, ones in which the learners themselves assume a greater responsibility for, and play a more active role in, their own learning.
