(Last edited: Friday, 23 June 2017, 3:08 PM)
In some of your courses, you may be required to take part in "peer-marking" assignments. In a peer-marking assessment, you begin by submitting your own work, after which you will read and review one or more papers from fellow classmates.

Step 1: Submit your own assignment as usual.  

  • For specifics on this process, please see this FAQ.

Step 2: Review other papers

  • After the peer-marking start date, you will be able to mark other students' papers by clicking the indicated icon on the submission overview screen:

  • Pay close attention the review instructions:

  • Click "Write Reviews" when you are ready to get started:

  • Begin your review using the supplied rubric and annotation tools:

Step 3: Submit your review

  • After you have finished your review, you may click the submit button on the top right hand corner, just above the marking rubric.
  • If you would simply like to save your work so you may continue later, simply click "save" and close the window.

Step 4: Read your feedback

  • Following the review stage, it is essential that you review your feedback and incorporate any relevant suggestions into your work.  To do this, simply follow the instructions for reviewing feedback as described in this FAQ.
