The last stage of the Peerceptiv assignment process is providing feedback on the reviews that you received. After the Reviewing period closes (including any Reviewing Grace Period days), it is time to complete this final step of the assignment.

What Does 'Provide Feedback' (Complete Back-Evaluations) Mean?
Peerceptiv uses the term Provide Feedback (Complete Back-Evaluations) to mean providing feedback on the helpfulness of the comments that you received and rating their helpfulness. The most helpful and specific reviews earn a rating of ‘5’, while brief, generic reviews with little detail and no solutions suggested might earn a ‘2’ or a ‘1’.
You’ll also provide a comment that supports each Feedback rating you chose. Many instructors use the feedback/back-evaluation prompt: If you found the review helpful, what made it useful? If possible, suggest a way to be more helpful next time. Provide specific and constructive feedback to help your reviewers know how to improve their reviewing comments.
Completing feedback on all of the reviews that you receive is a part of your task grade. You will not receive full credit for the task grade if you do not complete all of the assigned feedback tasks (back-evaluations).
Note: In group assignments, anyone in the group can provide feedback on the reviews that are received. However, all of the back-evaluations (feedback) must be completed in order for everyone in that group to have a feedback task grade of 100%.
A Step-By-Step Guide to Providing Feedback
Log into Peerceptiv, go to the Assignment Overview screen, and click Give Feedback to begin the process.
From the screen below, click Back-evaluate to read the reviewer's comments and provide feedback on their review. After you complete the back-evaluations, you can click Show Your Back-Evaluations to view the reviews and your feedback on them at the bottom of the screen.
To provide, read a comment, select its helpfulness, and write a suggestion for the reviewer. You will need to do this for each comment on the review. Include suggestions about how the reviewer could have offered more helpful and specific feedback. Be sure to click on the Save or Submit button when finished.
Enter the appropriate rating for each comment you received and write an explanation of the rating you provided, including suggestions about how the reviewer could have offered more helpful and specific feedback. Be sure to click on the Save or Submit button when finished.
Continue this process until you have provided feedback for each of the reviews received. You can also use the blue Edit button to revise your feedback after you first submit those back-evaluations. This feedback contributes to the Helpfulness grade earned by the reviewer (and remember, the feedback awarded on your reviews contribute to your Helpfulness grade).
For the fuller picture of how your document was rated according to the rubric, scroll down the Provide Feedback screen to see the average ratings you received and the comments and back-evaluations. Use this feedback to see how your document performed according to the rubric and to gain suggestions for how to improve future submissions.
After you have completed your feedback, you have finished all of the tasks for the assignment. If you completed all of the Feedback, you should receive a 100% for the feedback task grade. There is no late period for feedback; as soon as the feedback deadline passes, the grades are calculated.
