Article Title: Impact of Peer Assessment on Performance in Mathematics among Senior Secondary School Students in Delta State, Nigeria
by Asuai Nelson Chukwuyenum and Adeleye, Bukunola Adunni

Peer Assessment is the systematic process of peers assessing each others' work using instructional rubrics for grading. The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of peer assessment on performance in mathematics among Senior Secondary School Students in Delta State. It is envisage that this study would benefit students to promote creativity in solving problems, evaluate new ideas, select the best ones and or modify them. Policy makers and curriculum developer in the education sector would also benefit by helping them to review the present educational policy and curriculum with the aim of introducing Peer Assessment as an assessment tool to improve students' learning abilities in Mathematics. The information gathered in this study would also help teachers, institutions and researchers in education to have a better understanding of Peer Assessment which would enable them evaluate students' academic performance in secondary schools more appropriately. Multi-stage sampling techniques were applied to select sample of 212 senior secondary school students. Mathematics Performance Tests and Peer Assessment Mathematics Scale were the instruments used to collect data for the study. Three research hypotheses were generated to guide the study while Analysis of Covariance was used to test the hypotheses. Results of the data analysis revealed that there is significant difference in Mathematics test among experimental conditions. The study also found out that there is significant difference in peer assessment test among participants exposed to the training conditions. However, the study also revealed that there is no significant gender difference in peer assessment among experimental conditions. It is therefore recommended that in teaching Mathematics, Peer Assessment should be introduced in teaching students in schools and should be part of the curriculum of teaching Mathematics.
Keywords: feedback, gender, instructional rubrics mathematics, and peer assessment.
