Previous studies have revealed that peer pressure is a factor in negative 
student perceptions of peer assessment. In this study, a web-mediated system 
was utilized to facilitate peer assessment and provide anonymity minimizing 
the impact of peer pressure. Post-assessment survey results indicated that 
students generally accepted this method and recognized itsí value in promoting 
critical learning. The merits of anonymity and instant feedback were acknowledged 
in student responses.
