This article describes how to enter a teacher review in a peer assessment assignment.
All peer assessment assignments allow instructors to enter a review for a student submission. To do this, click the Progress tab on the left side bar of the assignment dashboard and then click a student's name in the Progress table. A student with a blue +1 in their Review Received column has already had an instructor review started or completed for them.
After clicking a student's name in the Progress table, you will be able to see the student's assignment details. Click the navy blue "Write Review button" to use your rubric to add an instructor review.
You can now go through the rubric, adding comments and ratings. If you would like your students to know that you entered the comment, add your name or initials at the end of each comment.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are teacher reviews anonymous?
Instructor reviews are always anonymous and will look the same as a peer review. If the instructor does not want their comments to be anonymous, we recommend the instructor write their name or initials in the comment box for each comment they write.
When will students see teacher review comments?
Students will be able to view instructor comments at the end of the assignment after results have been generated and released to students. Students will not see instructor comments during the feedback phase because students are not required to give feedback to instructor comments.
How does a teacher review affect student grades?
In the grading settings for the assignment, you can choose to have teacher reviews either count the same as a student review (regular review) or override student reviews. The Peerceptiv grading algorithm considers instructor reviews to be 100% accurate, so even if you've chosen to have instructor reviews count the same as student reviews, instructor reviews do have slightly more influence than peer reviews. The accuracy of students who provide similar ratings to your review ratings will increase and will carry more weight in the grading process. Their accuracy would affect all submissions they review. If you would like to have a strong affect on student grades through your teacher reviews without overriding student reviews, we recommend giving teacher reviews to 30% of your students. As always, instructor reviews are optional and are not required for the algorithm to give valid and reliable grades.
