Description

Context/Hope

Many who have begun using computer-supported student peer review activities hope they can:

  • Enable students to provide more and better feedback to each other.
  • Deepen students’ learning without diluting course content or increasing students’ workload.
  • Decrease - at least avoid increasing - faculty workload.

Central Discussion Questions

A. Why use computers to support student peer review?

B. Why did you begin?

C. Which features have become most important?

D. Advice for Newcomers:  Benefits, Cautions, Recommendations

(Answers to some of these questions may be addressed specifically to students, faculty, or other academic professionals as appropriate.)

Gehringer and colleagues may also describe the purpose and progress of PeerLogic, an NSF-funded research project that works on providing web services for educational peer review systems, including: Metareview Services, Visualization Services, Summarization Services, Reputation Services, Reviewer Assignment, and Data Warehouse & Analytics.  More about these services...www.peerlogic.org
