This paper in Computers and Education describes the use of a networked peer assessment system to facilitate the development of inquiry-oriented activities for secondary science education. The findings of 24 teachers in Taiwan suggest that teachers tend to develop more creative, theoretically relevant, and practical science activities as a result of the networked peer assessment. This study also reveals that students who offer detailed and constructive comments on reviewing the work of their peers may also improve their own work.
