Abstract
PCF10 Sub-theme: Fostering Lifelong Learning // Self and peer assessment is reported to be an effective assessment practice for students in higher education with a number of benefits as well as challenges. Learning Management Systems have created ways in which to implement such assessments online with Moodle having the Workshop activity as an option. This study aims to explore the success of an online self and peer assessment activity experience. Students in two practical courses at the Department of Social Sciences, University of Namibia were introduced and participated in a self and peer assessment activity. An online questionnaire, administered through Moodle’s Survey activity, was used to gather data from the students. Key findings include the fact that most students had never been exposed to self and peer assessment before hence faced a number of challenges. However, those who managed to pull off the assessment did share that is was useful and they enjoyed it. The findings from the study would be added to the training of lecturers on the use of Moodle Workshops at the University. // Paper ID 0604
