Writing a peer review

Peer reviews are completed by students writing or selecting answers to free response or scale questions provided by PeerMark or created by the instructor.

Free response questions require a written response and may have a minimum length requirement. Scale questions require the students to rate an aspect of the paper that is being reviewed based on a question the instructor has created according to a scale.

A peer review can be saved and closed to be completed at a later time by selecting the Save button at the top of the peer review page.

  2. Select the Write Reviews button to the right of the PeerMark assignment.
