This article will discuss Group Assignments in Peerceptiv. In the following article, we will review:
How to Create or Join a Group
Please carefully follow the instructions your teacher has given you. Sometimes instructors will create groups for you, in other cases you'll be directed to create your own group. If you have already been assigned to a group by your instructor, you can see who is in your group by clicking the Groups button on the left side navigation bar.
If your group has not already been created by an instructor, you can click the button that says Create/Join Group.
Then you will see following screen, in which you will either choose to create a new group or join a group that has already been created (by looking it up via student or via group).
If you click Create a Group, you will create a new group in which you are the group leader, and you can invite new members to join your group by clicking “Invite a New Member.” You can also edit your group’s name by clicking the small pencil after the title of the group.
If you click Join a Group (via Student), you will be able to see a list of your classmates and can request to join a group with someone you know in it. The group leader of that student’s group will get an email and they must respond to it and either accept or reject your request within 72 hours. If you do not get into the group in 72 hours, you may want to reach out to those group members separately or request to join another group.
If you click Join a Group (via Group), you will be able to see a list of all groups that have already been formed in the class and request to join a group. Again, the group leader of that group will get an email and they must respond to it and either accept or reject your request within 72 hours. If you do not get let into the group in 72 hours, you may want to request to join another group. If the group you are intending to join is not listed, then it has not yet been created. In that case, you may choose to create the group yourself.
After you have joined a group, or if you were already added to a group by your instructor, you can click the My Group button on the left side navigation bar and see the group that you are a part of. If you need to add an additional group member and it has been allowed by your instructor, you can click the Invite a New Member button.
The star in the circle identifies the group leader. The group leader may be randomly assigned if there is no specific need for one in the class assignment.
How to Submit a Group Assignment
In a Peerceptiv group assignment, group members only need to upload one submission for the group. To submit for a group assignment, you will click Submit or Group Submit. If one of your group members has already submitted the assignment, then you can click View Submission to see what your group member submitted and replace that submission if needed. The submission can be replaced up until the submission deadline closes. The most recent submission will be saved. All group members will receive the same submission grade at the end of the assignment.
How to Review a Group Assignment
Each member of the group is expected to complete the reviewing requirement for the assignment. If your instructor sets up the assignment to require 3 reviews, then each group member must complete 3 reviews. Each member will receive an individualized reviewing accuracy grade and reviewing task grade based on the quality of their reviewing. Click Start a Review to get started.
How to Provide Feedback for a Group Assignment
Click Start Feedback to provide feedback for the reviews that your group submission received. Giving feedback is a shared process between group members. Only one group member should give feedback for each review, but group members can divide up the feedback tasks. One group member doesn’t need to give all of the feedback. If the review needs feedback, the button will say “Start feedback;” if you or another member has given feedback already, it will say “Edit feedback.”
