This study explores the application effects of self- and peer assessment from two aspects: combining evaluation and instruction, and facilitating learning with evaluation. In the aspect of combining the instruction process with self- and peer assessment, this study attempts to incorporate the Web technology into the self- and peer assessment procedure, and then to make it a part of the instruction activity. With respect to facilitating learning through evaluation, we attempt to combine self assessment, peer assessment and peer interaction to facilitate the occurrence of learning. The results of this study indicate that the Web-based self- and peer assessing activities could be successfully incorporated into classroom instruction. Moreover, the discussion among peers over their opinions and feelings about the observation and assessment results helps consensus-building among participants in evaluation and improves the objectiveness of their assessment.
