    Enabling Peer Review

    Enabling peer review for your students is very simple to do.  In the Assignments tool, either add a new assignment or edit an existing assignment.  Scroll down to the "Peer Assessment" settings and check the box next to "Use peer assessment".  After you enable it, you need to set the date and time the evaluation period ends, whether the evaluation is anonymous, whether students can see their peers' feedback, and how many submissions each student must review.  You can also provide written instructions or a rubric in the "Instructions for Reviewers" text box.  Adjust the remaining assignment settings and click on the "Post" button when you're ready.
