Helping Students Learn by Giving Feedback
The Floop Peer Review tool lets teachers run a rapid, anonymous, and scaffolded peer review session during a class period - or for however long you would like. Peer reviews are centered around a specific criteria, called Feedback Focus.
Teacher Side: Setting Up Peer Review
- Set up an assignment
- Click "Run Peer Review" and define a specific feedback focus to guide the peer review
- Monitor student submissions as they come in
- Monitor the peer review session during class.Green = Completely meets criteria, Yellow = Somewhat meets criteria, Red = Doesn't meet criteria yet.
- Click "Stop Peer Review" when you are ready to end the Peer Review
Student Side: Participating In Peer Review
- Submit work to the assignment
- From the dashboard, click "Enter Peer Review"
- Carefully evaluate your peers work using the guiding questions. More work samples will be provided to review until you review them all or your teacher ends the peer review session.
- Once the session has ended, go back to the dashboard and click "Peer" to view your feedback.
- Read your feedback, revise your work, and decide if you want to resubmit!
Can multiple criteria be included in the feedback focus?
Yes, you can chain together multiple criteria in the feedback focus. However, you cannot provide multiple separate criteria without running a separate peer review.
Can multiple peer review sessions be run for the same assignment?
Yes, but new sessions will replace the data from old sessions. If you'd like to keep old peer review data, we suggest creating a new assignment.
Can I customize the multiple-choice options in the peer review guiding questions?
Yes, these can all be edited, but the amount of them is currently fixed.
Can I see the feedback students are giving?
Yes! You can see the feedback given and received by a student in Feedback View.
Why is the peer review session so structured? I'd like to customize more of the options.
There are a number of peer review tools available on the market, but they are all built for Higher Education students. Novice learners, like middle and high school students, generally need a lot of training and scaffolding to give effective feedback to their peers. Our peer review process has been heavily informed by research and rigorously tested in our classrooms to get students provide high-quality feedback from the very first session.
