Feedback and assessment play an important role in teaching and learning of oral presentation skills. This study describes the implementation and evaluation of an innovative instruction that uses a Student Response System for peer assessment of oral presentations. A large number of oral presentations were assessed and students’ perceptions and learning progress concerning the particular instructional approach were investigated. Results show that the Student Response System was an effective way to produce feedback for presenters, assessors and educators. Results also revealed a very positive students’ attitude towards the instructional format. The learning effect concerning assessment was rather limited. Further research is needed to come to conclusive statements about the latter.
