Blending peer assessment and new technologies enhances college teaching and promotes learning in the wide variety of settings in which adult learning occurs. The role of peer assessment as a formative evaluation strategy for the purpose of improving learning at the graduate level is examined. Formative assessment is encouraged to improve college teaching and learning. An electronic tool to replace the paper-based PA rubric that had been previously used was sought. A variety of electronic peer assessment tools used for formative assessment to increase learning in college courses are described. A Web-based software product selected to leverage the benefits of an online content management system, simplify the process of peer formative assessment, and applied to both formative and summative evaluation in both traditional and online environments is described. The results of a structured learner evaluation of the assessment tool and process will be reported.
