How to Set up Peer Reviews for Discussions

Purpose: Peer Reviews in Discussions function similarly to Peer Reviews for online assignments. Students will still initially post their thoughts relating to the discussion prompt. However, they will additionally provide comments and possibly rubric scores on their classmates’ posts. Rules and examples should be provided by instructors on how peer reviews must be completed for optimum feedback and participation.

**Rubric scores from peers will not populate into a student’s assignment grade. The instructor must provide the grade themselves for a student to earn credit. In addition, grades cannot be automatically allotted to completed peer reviews. Instructors must create a separate, no submission, graded assignment to enter scores.
