The peer review process is a great learning opportunity both for learners to step into the evaluator role in giving feedback and enabling them to receive it. This article will show you how to set up the Peer Review Evaluation.
Immediately after an assignment has been created and embedded on a lecture page, you can start to think about where you would like to embed the peer evaluation task. You are able to add the peer evaluation task to any lecture page that has not been released yet.
First, enter “edit mode” by selecting “Edit Content” from the drop-down menu on the upper right-hand side:
You should be able to recognize that you are in edit mode at all times by the banner that will appear on your lesson page:
Hover your mouse and click “Add” in the appropriate section:
This will trigger the component menu on the left hand side of the page:
You can then select the assignment for which you would like to provide private evaluations:
You can then select the number of submissions participants must provide feedback for and click “add."
From there, you can choose who you would like to provide feedback. You can add further details by selecting “Advanced Settings.” Under that section, you can also set the option of how the teaching team gets assigned submissions to evaluate. Note: Recommended only for small private courses. In large courses, evaluations are assigned slightly favoring those who complete more evaluations.
From there, you can add Evaluation Criteria and Rubrics.
There are two display formats for qualitative feedback: 1) Through a Feedback Capture Grid 2) Through customized criteria in Evaluation Criteria and Rubrics
The main difference in the two options are that the Feedback Capture Grid provides an opportunity to summarize qualitative feedback where in the customized criteria, you are able to elaborate on input for each scored criterion.
If you would like to add an additional section for the Evaluation Criteria and Scoring Rubrics, you can do so with the (+) button.
You can now select when you would like the peer evaluation period to start, and make sure to Submit to save changes.
After selecting “Save,” you will be redirected to the lesson page, where you can further edit the evaluation task.
If you would like to edit the title of the evaluation task, type directly on the default title while in edit mode:
You can also choose to mark this task as a to-do (for it to display on the Course Outline) by selecting the check mark on the right-hand side of the component. The check mark will turn orange when selected.
If you would like to add a deadline to the evaluation task, select “add deadline” from the drop-down menu triggered by the right-hand pencil icon.
The deadline will appear beneath the title. You can click directly on it to edit the release dates.
Note that the time and date you select is relative to your time zone.
