On this note: has anyone looked at the other Open Source platform : iPeer? It is Canadian so maybe not on the radar of you folks, but I am currently doing a comparison of WebPA/iPeer so any information would be helpful!

Thanks for your comments.
Gerard, apologies for the rogue link to the UCL-only space – most of this work is happening a members-only wiki, so I copied the page over to my own space to show it (Confluence permissions
are weird). I’ll be aiming to keep the page up to date.
So far we have listed WebPA, CATME, TEAMMATES and a bespoke approach using Moodle Questionnaire. There used to be a platform called CASPAR (https://www.cemp.ac.uk/tools/caspar.php)
but it seems to be dormant. I’m very grateful for the leads to iPeer (thanks Kar-On) and to SparkPlus (thanks Claire).

Subject: Re: Comparison of WebPA to other peer assessment platforms
this is very a useful resource. Have you also looked at SPARKPlus? The benefit this tool has over others is that students can write feedback to their peers which is anonymous. So students don't just receive a score but written feedback too which is very valuable
as part of their learning and development journey.

A few of us have been comparing WebPA, CATME, and Teammates (CASPAR seems to be retired) as part of a wider project on peer assessment of individual contribution.
I’ve made a public copy of the comparison page at
https://wiki.ucl.ac.uk/x/aQEVB - it’s not complete but is fairly well developed, especially with respect to WebPA.
I’d welcome comments (and any corrections) and hope this is helpful.
