PeerWise

By Paul Denny, John Hamer, Andrew Luxton-Reilly and Helen C. Purchase

Abstract

PeerWise is a web-based system that allows multiple-choice question banks to be built solely from student input. The system provides a number of intrinsic reward structures that encourage students to contribute high-quality questions in the complete absence of instructor moderation. Several opportunities for learning arise, spanning the range from simple drill-and-practice exercises to deep, reflective study. Affective skills are also developed, as students are challenged to give and receive critical feedback and provide quality judgements
