Please note that Peerceptiv is an external tool available under certain licensing arrangements and only where approved by your school or organization’s instructional technology office. For questions about how to get Peerceptiv at your institution, please contact Peerceptiv Support.
You MUST create the assignment in Brightspace first and then in Peerceptiv. This is true if you are creating a new Peerceptiv assignment or if you are copying in an assignment that you have previously used.
Create a Peerceptiv Assignment
You can add a Peerceptiv assignment to any section of course Content you’d like. Click Content or navigate to the page where you want to add your first assignment. Then, please select Existing Activities and then External Learning Tool to get started.
Next, you’ll click "Create New LTI Link" at the bottom of the list of previously existing links.
NOTE: You must create a new LTI link each time you create a new assignment unless your school's LMS administrator has enabled Peerceptiv links to be created at the deployment level. If you are unsure, please contact your LMS administrator and/or Peerceptiv support.
On the next screen you will enter the title of the assignment and the following URL to allow for grade pass back: https://api.peerceptiv.com/lti/launch (North American server) or https://sg.api.peerceptiv.com/lti/launch (Singapore server - only use if you are located in Singapore). If the Tool box does not auto-populate after adding the URL, please contact your system administrator or firstname.lastname@example.org. Then, click Create and Insert.
Once the assignment is created in Brightspace you’ll be brought back to the course content area where you’ll see the newly created link to the Peerceptiv assignment. It may be at the bottom of the list of assignments.
Important Note: For full functionality, you need to open Peerceptiv in a new tab. The best way to do this is to click on the small down arrow after the assignment title. Then select Edit Properties In-place.
Next, put a check in the box by Open as External Resource. This will always open the assignment in a new tab, for both instructors and students.
Students will need to open the Peerceptiv assignment in a new tab as well for optimum viewing experience.
The screen shot below shows what the assignment link will look like in Brightspace after it is created. All users, both instructors and students, will click on the assignment link to be taken directly to that assignment in Peerceptiv.
Click on the newly-created assignment link.
The first time you create a Peerceptiv assignment in a Brightspace course, if you have not yet created a course, you’ll be taken to your course creation page. Choose New Course and complete all Peerceptiv-side course settings and click Create.
Then, close the Peerceptiv tab and click back in from the Brightspace assignment link. Now, you should be taken to the assignment creation page. You can choose to Use a Standard Workflow, Build Your Own Assignment or Copy an Assignment. When finished, be careful not to create additional assignments on the Peerceptiv side unless you have clicked in from a corresponding Brightspace assignment link.
When the assignment has been published on the Peerceptiv side, make sure that it has also been published in Brightspace.
When students first access this link, they'll be automatically added to the student roster within Peerceptiv.
After creating the assignment, you can tell Brightspace how to account for the assignment grade. Click on Activity Details and then Assessment. Click on the plus sign.
Then, you can add the assignment name and put the assignment into a category. Scroll down to assign a points value and add other grade-related information.
This allows you to set the number of points for the assignment, make it bonus, or other Brightspace grade book features.
When you are done, click Create. Then, remember to Save all the assessment changes.
Important Note: Peerceptiv does not function well with some assignment restrictions or release conditions. If possible, please refrain from putting restrictions or release conditions on Peerceptiv assignments in Brightspace by D2L.
