The "Network Effect": Using Peer Review in Computer Programming

A Student Success Week 2014 Session

Team projects provide great opportunities for collaboration and group learning among students, while peer evaluation provides another avenue for enhancing critical thinking skills. The combination of the two is very effective in creating active learning environments, where students are engaged in both working and evaluating their own and others' work.

In this session, Jiaofei Zhong shares her experience bringing this exercise in combining group project work with peer evaluation into the context of computer programming courses. She discusses the net effects that benefit students who are actors in their own process of learning course content and developing working skills with real-world applications.


Fay Zhong is currently an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at California State University, East Bay.
