When creating an assignment, instructors can assign peer reviews for students . Peer reviews can be assigned manually by an instructor or automatically by Canvas. Group assignments can also be assigned peer reviews.
When a peer review has been assigned, students can view a notification in their Dashboard To Do sidebar or Activity Stream . Students will also receive an email notification.
If the assignment is not an On Paper or No Submission assignment type, students can also view the peer review information in the sidebar of the assignment details page.
Peer Review Comments
To complete a peer review, students must review the assignment and leave a comment on the submission details page .
Students cannot view previously submitted comments by any other reviewers, including instructors and TAs.
Instructors can also assign a rubric to the assignment. If the assignment includes a rubric , students must also complete the rubric to complete the peer review. The rubric score is used for an assessment opinion only; the instructor will later review the assignment and assign the final grade.
