Student peer review is an effective way to increase student feedback, and evaluate the capability of students to review and critique work. The task of providing feedback on the work of others adds a collaborative approach to learning and can expand engagement whilst raising awareness of possible approaches to problem solving.
The Turnitin PeerMark feature provides instructors with the option to introduce students to peer assessment. Additional options allow the instructor to:
choose whether the reviews are anonymous or attributed;
include free form or scale questions
require review of one or many assessment submissions made by their fellow students;
set dates for the peer review process to be completed;
grade the quality of the peer review provided.
