In this study, a special peer assessment technique was applied for 5th grade students based on
“electricity in our life” of the “Science and Technology” course. According to this activity, it was aimed to
determine the views of students associated with peer assessment. In addition, it was aimed to study the reflection
of the students’ success, which they acquired as a result of peer assessment, to their view. In addition, the views
of a science teacher and a class teacher participated to the assessment as observers were received. The research
was designed based on the method of qualitative research. The pattern of research is case study. The 30 students
studying in 5th grade of primary school in the district Selcuklu form the sample group of the research. Although

method was used to collect the teachers’ opinions. It was established that the students have positive thoughts
about peer assessment. Based on the result of peer assessment, the successful groups have more positive
thoughts than others.
