These objectives were attained by testing related null hypotheses. The research was delimited to prospective teachers at undergraduate level. Population of the research was comprised of 251 prospective teachers who had qualify the course of “Educational Assessment and Evaluation”, studying at undergraduate level (B.S.Ed Hons.) in Department of Science Education, Institution of Education and Research.

From these two programs, one was taken as control group and other as experimental group randomly. The research used quasi experimental (non-equivalent control group) design. Three research instruments i.e. motivation scale of MSLQ, achievement test and a case study, was used as pretest and posttest, before and after intervention. Both groups were taught by activity method but activities of experimental group were followed by peer assessment while activities of control group were assessed by me (teacher). Duration for treatment was 16 weeks. Data were analyzed by applying independent sample t-test and paired sample t-test to compare mean scores of both groups. viii The prospective teachers taught by peer assessment as learning strategy perform better than the prospective teachers taught by traditional method.
