How do I create a peer review Assignment?
A peer review assignment enables students to comment and provide feedback to other students in the course.
Select Submission Type
Determine How to Assign Peer Reviews
Automatically Assign Peer Reviews
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.
Assign Anonymous Peer Reviews
The Anonymity option allows instructors to hide the name of the student reviewer from the student with the submission. The student whose work has been reviewed cannot see the name of the reviewer. However, the reviewer will be able to see the name of the assigned person whose work is to be reviewed.
Instructors can always view the name of the student reviewer in SpeedGrader and on the student submission page. If you want to make the peer review anonymous, check the Peer Reviews Appear Anonymously checkbox.
