In Peer Review and Group Member Evaluation, Reviewer anonymity makes the comments of the reviewer appear anonymous. In Peer Review, Submitter anonymity anonymises the submission of the reviewee. The settings can be enabled independently from each other or used at the same time.

Reviewer Anonymity

This feature allows students to review their peers anonymously. Although the students themselves are not, the teacher is able to see which student wrote what comment. Therefore, students can still be held accountable for what they write. The added value of this feature is that when a student views their feedback, this feedback is not linked to a particular colleague student.

Fig. 2: Students view - the students' names are replaced by a fruity pseudonym. When using self-assessment it will show your own name (student) between brackets. 

Submitter Anonymity

This feature anonymises the hand-in of the student, giving the submitter a pseudonym instead. Teachers are still able to see who submitted the document. The added value is that students that provide feedback will not be biased in giving their review comments, as they do not know who submitted the document.
