Students Perception of Peer Assessment Modules used for Focus Groups On Line Questionnaires have been developed and sent to students for feedback. Focus groups have taken place for last years stage three students. Surveys and group meetings to take place after Christmas.
Focus Group Meetings Companies you worked with? At the End of Semester 1 did you understand the aim and process of Peer Assessment? How would you rate yourself and the members of your group today?

(If unfair explain why) What can we do to improve the Peer Assessment?

The majority of students in Singapore (92%) believe that PA can be improved whereas in the UK, majority of the students believe that the PA cannot be improved any further (93%)
