How do I manually assign peer reviews for a discussion?

Manually assigning peer reviews allows you to choose which students will be assigned peer reviews.

Note: When manually assigning peer reviews, students can complete their assigned peer reviews without having to post their own discussion reply first. If you require students to post to the discussion before being able to complete a peer review, you must automatically assign peer reviews.
