This paper details the process undertaken in developing a peer-assessed, essay-based assignment making use of the CAP (Computerised Assessment by Peers) system. The walkthrough provides information detailing the needs of a peer-assessed assignment, taking into account the requirement to automatically provide a reward to the student for performing the marking and commenting processes in a qualitative manner. In order to quantify these marking attributes, a menu-driven marking system has been developed, and this menu system is populated with student derived comments that include a weighting factor, so that the ‘importance’ of said comments can also be included within the overall assessment process.
