How to Use Peer Reviews in Class

Thursday, July 14, 12:00 pm-1:00 pm PDT
Host: Shamini Dias, PFF Director

Peer review is the implementation of peer-based learning methods as part of formative assessment. In peer-review, students are guided to provide feedback to each other to understand strengths and areas to improve in their classwork and assignments. Research by Linda Nilsen (2009), Lundstrom & Baker (2009), Reddy et al. (2020), and other scholars in different disciplines show that a guided dialogic process among peers helps students deepen knowledge, understand how to sharpen their work, and supports students to develop learning metacognition and learning how to learn skills. Not only does the depth of learning and quality of final work improve, but students also gain self-efficacy and independent learning skills that benefit them beyond our courses. Critical to effective peer-review that yields these benefits is the structure we set up and the facilitation processes we use to guide students through the process.
