Using peer assessment in the classroom to increase student engagement by actively involving the pupils in the assessment process  has been practiced and researched for decades. This paper analyzes the applicability of peer assessment to exercises at secondary  school level and makes recommendations for its use in computer science courses. Furthermore, a school pilot project introducing student-centered classrooms, called “learning office”, is described. Additionally, a concept for the implementation  of peer assessment in such student-centered classrooms is outlined. The evidence collected suggests that peer review is a viable  option for small- and medium-sized exercises in the context of computer science education at secondary school level under certain  conditions, which are  discussed in this paper.
