Final Project peer grading

Final Project peer grading#

Your Final Project will be reviewed and graded by three of your peers, and you will grade three others’. These will be anonymous. Scoring details.

If you disagree with the grade, you can appeal by emailing the instructor and grader. This comes with a risk: this new grade will be the one that’s used, even if it’s lower.

How to review#

  1. Open Brightspace.

  2. Go to Content, then Final Project. You should see an embedded TurnItIn/PeerMark dashboard.

  3. Follow these instructions.

    • Some students have reported issues when using Safari. If you’re unable to access, try a different browser.

    • PeerMark (annoyingly) doesn’t let you edit your review after you submit it, so double-check before submitting.

  4. Check against the analysis requirements, factoring in the applicable general assignment scoring.

  5. Explain what points are being deducted for what.

  6. State the final score in the comment area.

Notes for reviewers#

  • Your feedback should include what they did well, as well as what they could do more clearly/simply/etc.

  • The feedback should be constructive; don’t be a jerk.

  • Points should only be deducted based on the requirements. Please leave comments beyond that, for things like “this could be done better/differently,” even if there isn’t a corresponding point deduction.

  • You are not expected to run any of their code. The notebook should be graded as-is.

  • Reviews are expected to be in-depth, and thus take 15+ minutes each.

  • As long as the feedback is thoughtful, you’ll receive full points.
