This study examined the usefulness of networked workshop instruction, an instructional method that emphasizes presentation, discussion, evaluation, and knowledge construction. In workshop instruction, web-based peer assessment was used to evaluate students’ performance. Twenty-four computer and information science graduate students enrolled in a course “Web and Database Integration” and were assigned to nine teams. Each team was instructed to design a web-based system capable of performing certain functions. Functioning similar to how researchers and scientists would in a workshop, participants orally presented their ideas and web-based peer assessment was conducted to increase critical feedback during a team designs their own product. One creative products and qualitative comments from professors were presented to demonstrate the students’ high quality achievement.
