Peer Review

Peer Review Comparison

Exploring Peer Assessments is the ideal session for instructors looking to better understand how peer reviews can work in their classrooms and the learning tools that can help implement these activities. This workshop will present a comparative view of some of the Faculty of Arts’ best used peer assessment tools: Canvas Peer Review, iPeer, the Collaborative Learning Annotation System (CLAS), peerScholar and ComPAIR. Participants will have the opportunity to learn how to set up activities with these tools and then try them out as students. This session is all you need to make confident decisions about the best peer assessment tools for your classes.


Available from within Canvas, the peerScholar peer assessment platform offers a robustly featured alternative to the internal Canvas Peer Review tool. This introductory demo session will provide information on peerScholar’s flexible feedback options, how peer assessments, as well as submissions can be marked, and how grades are easily synced with the Canvas Gradebook. Lastly, we will go over how students participate in activities and what it looks like on their end.
