Peer Review

profilesnwanguma

Each week, you will be asked to respond to the prompt or prompts in the discussion forum. Your initial post should be 75-150 words in length, and is due on Sunday. By Tuesday, you should respond to two additional posts from your peers. 

This week, you will be engaging with the work of other students through Peer Review. In Week 6, you were instructed to submit a copy of your rough draft to this forum. If you have not done so, please submit a copy as an attachment in a new thread with your name as the subject.

For this week’s assignment, you’ll need to read and respond to at least two other students’ essays and provide them feedback. These responses must include the Peer Review rubric. Use the rubric to provide constructive feedback, incorporating specific, positive remarks as well as helpful suggestions so your peer can see you genuinely evaluated their rough draft.

Your peer reviews should be posted as a response to that student’s thread and should be submitted as an attached word document.

Additional Instructions:

  • Select at least one essay which has only one or no responses so everyone has a chance to receive feedback.
  • Focus primarily on content, not grammar, spelling, punctuation, or format. If you point out errors, give examples from the paper so the writer knows where to look. 

Here is a link to the Peer Review Rubric to utilize in your feedback: Peer Review Rubric

Provide an overall conclusion and impression of your peer’s paper.  What did your peer do right? What could they improve?  This should include recommendations and constructive comments to help your peer improve.

This week we will be undergoing the Peer Review process. This process is important because it allows us to gain insight from other perspectives (as well as allow us to give insight). For this week’s discussion, your initial post will consist of your Week 6 Rough draft (which you should submit in Week 6 after you’ve submitted your rough draft to your instructor). You will need to respond to at least two of your fellow student’s rough drafts as well. There are two key things to remember when doing this:

First, your replies should be submitted as attached Word documents. Try not to give one sentence answers, but instead provide positive feedback as well as constructive criticism. Remember that the idea is to support your classmates’ and let them know what they are doing well and what could be improved (but make sure to avoid negativity). Also, focus on the larger issues with the essay (content, structure, organization, use of sources, arguments, thesis, etc.) rather than smaller issues like editing or proofreading.

Second, please make sure to include a copy of the rubric for each student in your response (filled out how you might grade that student’s essay as it is now). This should be included in your response.

A few other tips:

  • Submit your paper by Sunday. Respond to two of your classmates' papers by Tuesday.
  • Select at least one essay which has only one or no responses so everyone has a chance to receive feedback.
  • You are not required to point out grammar, spelling, and formatting issues, but, if you do, give examples from the paper. Focus on content first.
  • If you are comfortable using the Comments feature in Word, please download the paper, make comments, and upload the paper with your corrections.
