In this paper, we report on some quantitative results which suggest that students who use PeerWise actively perform better in final examinations than students who are not active. We note a significant effect on performance in written (not multiple choice) questions resulting from increased PeerWise activity, suggesting that active use of the system contributes to deep (and not just drill-and-practise) learning.</ABSTRACT><URL>http://portal.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=1404526</URL></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
