Can Peer Assessment Improve Assignment Resubmission Rates?

I have identified that there is a high volume of re-submissions of work from students across the BTEC Level 3 Computing and IT Courses.

In many cases the learners simply submit the minimum quality of work as they know that they will be granted a re-submission as long as the first submission is uploaded on time to meet the hand in deadline.

This is an issue for teachers in my team as it requires a heavy marking and remarking workload. Little emphasis is put into ensuring that learners are made fully aware of the consistent quality of work required.
