Peer Review

Activate peer learning by guiding your students to review each other's work

How does it work?

Peer Review enables instructors to create assignments for students to provide feedback to their peers on deliverables. The tool structures and streamlines the process of students reviewing their peers’ work. The teacher specifies the criteria by which students evaluate their peers’ work and sets deadlines and instructions.

Groups are automatically synced from the LMS and each student is automatically assigned. Feedback can be provided on multiple types of deliverables such as videos, websites, documents.

Tool Features

Teachers can change the type of peer review activity from individuals to reviewing the activity either within groups or groups giving feedback to other groups.

The tool allows teachers to structure and customize peer review criteria with options such as qualitative feedback criteria, scales, or rubrics.

The tool enables students to critically review their own contribution before assessing others'.

Teachers have the possibility to convert any activity into a summative task, configure which steps of the assignment should be graded and how much element should count to determine the final grade.

Teachers can set deadlines on when to release feedback that has been provided to students. The tool doesn't show the feedback student get from their peers until the deadlines are over to avoid bias.

Teachers can either design open peer assessment, encouraging comparison and discussion among students or anonymously, depending on the assessment task and context.

Pedagogical value

Teaching value

Students become responsible for their own learning process. Peer Review is an effective activation technique that saves time in the process of providing feedback to all students.

Learning value

Peer Review enables students to reflect on their own work by looking at other students’ work. They learn to handle review criteria and discover how to apply these to their own work. Students provide feedback and learn how to reflect on them.

The AI-tool Automated Feedback on writing gives students instant feedback on the quality of academic writing in assignments, thesis, and other deliverables. Students improve their academic writing skills by receiving direct in-line feedback, resulting in more permanent and actionable learning. As importantly, the tool also reduces the time spent on assignment review for teachers, allowing them to reallocate their time on providing feedback on the content rather than the form. 

The students who use Peer Review achieve much better learning and much better grades. Students see this is a really nice thing to do.

I immediately saw FeedbackFruits' Peer Review tool offered really many advantages over Canvas's native peer review tool. In particular, FeedbackFruits offered the support multiple deadlines that we were looking for. It offered to students a really clear set of steps to find and complete the peer review task.
