This study developed a synchronous computer supported collaborative learning system (PALSS) which integrated peer-assisted learning strategy to promote online peer learning in elementary settings. Fifty-six fourth-grade students of an elementary school in Taiwan participated in this study for eight weeks. The results of this study indicated that students in the online peer-assisted learning group outperformed the face-to-face group on the Reading Comprehension Test (F=4.37, p<.05). The results revealed that different types of online activities resulted in different online peer interaction. There was strong positive correlation between students' self-concept and online tutor's and tutee's behaviors. The positive findings supported that PALSS was an effective tool for enhancing students' Chinese reading proficiency. The PALSS also has the potential effect on promoting self-concept for students with low participation in a CSCL learning environment.
