  5. 5. As reviewers, are the perceptions of the students on the activity different from those as feedback “receivers”?
  6. 6. Written communication skills (type of feedback)
  7. 7. Intermediate grades vs. Final grades Peer grades vs. Teacher grades
  8. 8. II - Learning Activity
  9. 9. IV - Evaluation
  10. 10. Did students found the activity useful (in terms of learning)?
  11. 11. Are students self-confidents about their own work?
  12. 12. Was there any difference between the grades? Average grades Peer Reviewer Teacher 1st Cycle 0,75 0,77 2nd Cycle 0,84 0,88 3rd Cycle 0,87 0,83 4th Cycle 0,89 0,82
  13. 13. V - Discussion, Conclusion and Future Work
  14. 14. Technology acceptance Basic communication skills Activity appreciation
  15. 15. Need to continuous support Low self-confidence for grading peers Few improvements Low critical thinking skills Neutral grades effect
  16. 16. Blind vs. non-blind Skills vs. approach Grades scale Activity value
  17. 17. Overcome research limitations FRISCO Approach & Cornell Test (Ennis, 1996)
