Rubric-Peer Review and My Thought on it
« on: April 09, 2013, 02:20:05 AM »
I found a peer review rubric here;,
and want to share my thought and impression on this rubric.

What I like are;

1) Clear purposes for peer review: this rubric states three purposes including encouraging student to produce best possible materials by interactions, allowing peer-to-peer instructions, and providing students with extra opportunities to practice analytic and critical thinking skills.

2) mentioning when students can earn points while doing peer-review from writing tasks.

3) different criteria provided to score students' efforts on peer review process.

What I don't like are;

1) uses of some terms for criteria such as "meaningful" comments. Because "meaningful" itself doesn't sounds concise enough to help student figure out how specific and relevant comments they need to provide to their peers.

2) giving too much of weight on submitting a paper by deadline rather than giving well-refined and relevant comments for their peers.

For me, it was a good chance for looking at well-made rubrics for peer review and other rubrics with some considerations. It helped me re-consider what should be considered for making a good quality rubric to lead students to do peer review in a way of practicing their skills as the purposes aim for (in this rubric).
