The purpose of this article is a comprehensive analysis of the use of the Peer Assessment method by teachers of the Department of Foreign Languages and Intercultural Communication of the Faculty of International Economic Relations in the course of teaching 3rd year students the discipline “Foreign Language (special) (English)”. This educational concept has no strict definition. In a broad sense, such a model of education is understood when people teach each other. They interact closely in the process — they exchange experience, knowledge and information — and so form connections and create communities based on the principles of support and mutual assistance. At the same time, the teacher or instructor acts in such training not as a source of new knowledge, but as a creator and facilitator of the educational environment. Thus, it is a kind of active learning. Participants in the educational process who are on the same step in the educational hierarchy are usually considered equal: that is, schoolchildren, students, colleagues. There is no administrative subordination between them, so there is no place for instruction, guidance, let alone punishment. In the course of the study, a historical review of approaches to the Peer Assessment method was conducted, its modern interpretations and types were considered. The author considers this method as the main tool for the development of students’ critical thinking, the ability to work in a team, the formation of language proficiency and speech skills. Clear criteria for evaluating the work of classmates in a variety of activities are formulated. Based on the conducted research, the author comes to the conclusion about the advantages and conditions of the Peer Assessment method both as a specific training technique and as an innovative form of control. Recommendations are also given on the application of this method as the best way to form important professional competences of future specialists: ability to develop their own strategies of action, plan management decisions, evaluate arguments for and against, work with professional literature.
