With the new user interface for Peer Review, the reviews are grouped in one frame. The student can more easily see an overview of the work that needs to be reviewed and compare the given feedback.
Students can start reviewing either by clicking on the purple button at step 3 to start or continue reviewing or by clicking on the name of the team member they would like to review.
Inside the new review interface, the feedback criteria and descriptions are displayed in the far-left column. The columns to the right show the students whose work needs to be reviewed. The students are able to navigate between the reviews during the process to more easily compare the feedback they've given between various reviews.
Students are now able to provide feedback on the submissions as a whole in the review overview. They are also able to provide feedback on specific uploads and make in-line annotations and comments. By clicking on the 'open' button at a submission at the top of the review, they are able to go into the submission and provide submission-specific feedback.
Both feedback on the submissions as a whole and specific feedback are visible in the review overview.
When placing a review comment, the student can click on the comment button below the respective feedback criterion. A comment window will pop up in which they can leave their feedback. They are also able to re-use the feedback they've given before in the assignment.
After posting a comment they will see an overview of all of the review comments they have left for their peer.
The students can see how far along they are in the review process by tracking the progress bar at the top right of the assignment. Once they have finished the review they will see 100% completion, and the purple button will say done.
Reading and reflecting on received feedback
Students read their feedback by either clicking on review overview or by clicking on the name of the peer who's feedback they would like to read.
The received feedback interface has the same layout as the interface for giving feedback. In the first column next to the feedback criteria, they will see all of their received feedback and averaged scores. In the following column, they can see the scores and review comments per peer.
When looking at review comments collectively, students are able to filter on 'most recently posted', 'most replied on' and 'most upvoted'.
