Perception of Peer Review in the OMSCS Program
MetadataShow full item record
This study investigates the perception of OMSCS students on the topic of the current peer review process in the OMSCS program. This includes the discussion of the potential steps that could be taken to improve the peer review process. Peer feedback has been demonstrated to support students’ learning in traditional classroom models. But the same has not been established for online programs like the OMSCS. To address this gap, views of OMSCS students on the benefits and shortcomings of the current peer review process were examined. Results suggest that while some of the findings are similar to the ones noted in existing literature, some are unique to the OMSCS program. Again, there are several studies which provide recommendations to improve the reliability of peer reviews. This paper also discusses the relevance of these recommendations and their applicability to the OMSCS program.
