How do I know if I have a peer review discussion to complete?
Your instructor can assign you to review another student's discussion post. You can view peer review notifications in Canvas in the Recent Activity Stream, the To Do list, and from the individual discussion page. Once peer reviews are assigned, you can also be notified according to your Canvas notification settings.
Once a peer review is assigned to you, a notification will appear in several dashboard areas.
View Recent Activity
On your Dashboard, you can view recent activity in your Global Activity Stream. Recent activity will display a peer review and the name of the course. Click the Show More link to access the assignment and view the name of the peer review student.
If a peer review is anonymous, the name will show as Anonymous User.
