Abstract: Feedback and assessment play an important role in teaching and learning. This study describes the implementation and
evaluation of an innovative instruction format that builds on the integrated use of a Student Response System (SRS) for
peer assessment of oral presentations of third-year engineering students. A large number of oral presentations were
assessed and participants played both the role of assessor and assessee. First, the analysis results demonstrate that the
psychometric qualities of the peer assessment approach supported by SRS are acceptable. Secondly, students’ learning
process and their perceptions about the learning process in this particular instructional setting were investigated. Results
mirror a very positive student attitude towards SRS. The SRS was reported as an effective way of producing feedback for
presenters, assessors and educators. The learning effect concerning assessment remained rather limited. Lastly, the
relationship between personal characteristics, performance and assessment was studied. Results point to a significant
positive correlation between self-efficacy and oral presentation performance.
