Peer Review

Students answer an open-ended question, and then let their classmates check each other’s work and give scores.

Setting up Peer Review is easy!

  1. First, create an open-ended question in the Question Bank.
  2. Go to Activities and then press the "Play" button on the right hand side of "Peer Review".
  3. Select your quiz (e.g., "Demo Activity - Peer Review" from the question bank, or create a question on the fly by clicking the "Create question" button at the top.
  4. Click the first question that you want to begin. In this example, we'll click the question "Is the Earth flat?"
  5. The system generates the session number "A167". Now, tell your students to join the session and when they are ready, press the "Start" button.
  6. Students answer the question.
  7. You press the "End question" button to show the class' feedback on this question.
  8. Allow peers to review each other's comments. Decide the minimum number of reviews that each student have to make and whether you (the instructor) allow them to rate as well as comment. Click "Next".
  9. Students can see all of their peers' answers. They select the one that they want to rate/comment by clicking the blue color button next to the answers.
  10. Once the rating and comments are done, a check mark will be shown next to the logo.
  11. On the Instructor portal, you can see how many students have completed their peer review. Press the "Stop Peer Review" button to show the result.
  12. Click on the grey area to reveal the comment that's given by each student, in addition to displaying his/her own answer. You can also see how they are being rated by their peer.
  13. Press "Next" to proceed to the next question if you have more than one question for students to work on. Press the "End Game" button if you're done.
