Canvas will automatically assign a peer review to the student. Assigned peer reviews appear underneath the students name [1]. A check mark [2]  indicates a peer review has been completed. A caution triangle [3] indicates a peer review still needs to be completed. If the student has not submitted the assignment, the student will not automatically be assigned a peer review [4].
