What is the Peer Review tool?

Peer Review, powered by Peerceptiv, offers a research-validated peer review technology that improves writing and critical thinking skills.

Create a peer review assignment by adding the Lessons tool to your site and a link to Peer Review on a lesson page. Students will upload their work, such as a research paper, lab report, podcast, infographic, or a presentation. Their peers will anonymously provide qualitative feedback on their work based on instructor rubrics. All students will hold one another accountable by rating the feedback they receive on their own work. Finally, grades will be generated based on the peer reviews and any instructor input.

Note: Links to Peer Review in the Tool Menu or in Lessons can point to one assignment each. We recommend adding assignment links to pages in Lessons. For more information, see How do I add an external tool to a lesson page?
