We are excited to announce the release of Peer Review 2.0 on Teachfloor, a significant update that enhances the functionality and flexibility of peer review activities within our courses.
What's New in Peer Review 2.0?
- Separate Activity Element: Unlike the previous version where Submission and Peer Review were combined, Peer Review is now an independent element. This separation offers trainers greater flexibility in structuring course activities.
- Connectivity with Other Activities: Peer Review can be linked not only with a Submission Activity but will soon also integrate with a Feedback Reflection activity (coming soon). This allows for diverse activity flows like Submission + Peer Review + Feedback Reflection, or just Submission + Peer Review.
- Improved Allocation Algorithm: A new allocation algorithm ensures that every student who submits work is guaranteed at least one peer review. This feature enhances fairness and engagement in the peer review process.
Enhancing the Learning Experience:
Peer Review 2.0 allows students to critically evaluate their peers' work using a customizable feedback rubric. Trainers can tailor these rubrics to meet the specific needs and objectives of their course, making the peer review process more relevant and impactful.
Benefits of Updated Peer Review:
- Flexibility in Course Design: Trainers have more control over the structure and flow of course activities.
- Enhanced Student Engagement: Ensuring every submission is reviewed fosters a more inclusive and interactive learning environment.
- Customized Feedback: The ability to create tailored feedback rubrics aligns evaluations more closely with course goals.
This update is part of our ongoing commitment to providing a dynamic and efficient learning platform. We believe Peer Review 2.0 will significantly improve the peer assessment process, making it more streamlined, fair, and beneficial for both students and trainers.
We’re eager to hear your feedback on Peer Review 2.0 and see the innovative ways you integrate it into your courses.
Happy teaching and learning!
