This article outlines the development and trial of peer assessment procedures for implementation within a music performance context in the Australian tertiary environment. An overview of the literature on peer assessment is presented, followed by reference to specific trials of peer assessment within a tertiary music student context. The paper then presents the rationale for and methodology applied in developing two forms of peer assessment of music performance, for trial across one academic year. Student evaluation data obtained via mid- and end-of-year questionnaires are analysed and discussed, as are implications for further research.
