A feasible way to do a formative evaluation is to use peer assessment. In other words, students play the role of evaluators to evaluate the work submitted by others. However, the reliability of students’ rating is not guaranteed. Therefore, we propose a new strategy to design and develop an online peer assessment system to support the effective development of blended learning activities for engineering courses under the new situation. Empirical research shows that teachers and students are more satisfied with the system.
