As part of this course you will be reviewing, commenting on, and marking other students’ assignments. This is a mandatory part of the course and you will be marked on your peer reviews (15% of overall course mark).
It’s binary. Each peer review will be deemed “good” or “needs more”.
Hallmarks of “needs more” feedback:
Each review you do will get you 1 point if “good” and 0 points if “needs more”. Those will be totalled over all assignments to form your peer review mark.
Peer reviewing and critiquing others’ work is a useful skill to develop during your graduate studies. Although these links deal mainly with the peer review of academic papers, most of the key points are applicable to our peer review process.
