WebPA is an online peer moderated marking system, which has been designed for students partaking in group work, where an overall group mark is awarded. Each student in group grades theirs and their team member’s performance.  

WebPA is accessed through Blackboard. Staff and students that are enrolled on a Blackboard course with a WebPA assignment present will be granted access automatically.

To use WebPA with a Blackboard course, follow these steps:
