How do I add a peer review rubric to student pages?

If students have created student pages attached to a page in Lessons, an instructor can add a peer review rubric to the pages. This allows the students to evaluate the pages created by their peers. Scores are presented in aggregate form to the students, so that reviewers remain anonymous to their peers. Instructors can access the scores awarded by each reviewer in the evaluation statistics. See View evaluation statistics.

You will need to add the Student Content section to a page in Lessons to allow students to create student pages and to add peer review rubrics. For instructions to add the Student Content section to a page, see How do I allow students to add content to pages in Lessons?

Note: Peer review scores cannot be added to the Gradebook tool.
