Applying an Assessment Agent to Evaluate the Learning Effectiveness
This study presents an assessment agent that models collaborative learning as multi-issue agent negotiation using fuzzy constraints for peer assessment. The proposed method aggregates student marks to avoid the subjective judgments and unfair assessments. Experimental results indicated that students and instructors generally acknowledged the peer assessment as a valuable process for enhancing student critical thinking skills and improving learning performance.
