How do I create a peer review Assignment?
Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.
When creating an assignment, you can require students to complete a peer review of another student's work. Learn more about peer review assignments.
For peer reviews, you can choose to show the names of students in peer reviews or make them anonymous. You can also choose to manually assign peer reviews or automatically assign peer reviews. To complete the peer review, students are required to leave at least one comment. If you include a rubric, they are also required to complete the rubric.
Note: To learn how assignment and peer review due dates appear in a student's To Do list, view the Peer Review Tips PDF.

If you automatically assign peer reviews, the menu will expand. In the Reviews Per User field , enter the number of reviews each student will be required to complete. In the Assign Reviews field , use the calendar icon to select a due date or manually enter the due date for student peer reviews.
Note: If automatically assigning peer reviews, the assign reviews date must come after the assignment due date. If left blank, Canvas will use the assignment due date.
