As a student tool, it offers an organized writing space where students can submit assignments for individualized feedback from both peer reviewers and you, the instructor.

  • Ensure authors and reviewers remain anonymous
  • Build custom rubrics for peer reviewers to score against
  • Use pre-defined “Tags” for reviewers to provide specific feedback
  • Allow reviewers to input custom comments for authors
  • Require a minimum number of tags or comments in a peer review
  • Score and assign points for quality of feedback by reviewer
  • Preview peer reviews before releasing to authors
