This paper discusses the potential for web-based peer assessment, based on the numerous possibilities for different communication patterns that the technology affords. It describes and compares two novel web-based peer assessment systems for computer programming courses, and discusses their deployment on large programming modules. The results indicate that these peer assessment systems have successfully helped students to develop their understanding of computer programming.
