- Can use “random allocation” to get various people to mark other students’ work. Can nominate how many reviews per submission. Or you can manually allocate students to mark other students’ work.
- Students can mark other's work with numeric grades and qualitative responses. As they mark, the description of the marking criteria was also provided.
- Markers can be made anonymous or otherwise.
- Quality of the students' review can also be given a mark - this can be rated as very lax, lax, fair, strict and very strict. This means that students get a mark for their work and for their marking.
- Grades given by students can be overruled by the teacher
- Peer review can be given a lesser rating than a teacher's.
- Students cannot be given grades unless the students are asked to grade three or more examples.
