Samples of Peer Review Writing Assignments

Examples of Google Forms and Spreadsheets for Student Writing Assignments and general use.
1. Anonymous feedback, collecting responses from small groups, and quizes.
- Many of these short assignments can be evaluated by completion. The point is sometimes to generate and share student writing with the class. If you want to introduce some informal evaluation, you can ask students to pick a few favorites in a followup exercise, for example.
- Google forms quiz mode will track multiple quizes with different numbers of questions.
2. Simple "collect and post" exercises. With and without peer review.
- 1. Non-evaluative informal student writing.
- Example: Everyday Ethics Discussion and Short Writing Prompt #1
- Follow this link when you are ready to write. Due midnight tonight!
- 2. Evaluative student writing. Collect student writing in one form, peer feedback in a second, back-evaluation in a third, and share all writing to class. (with or without scoring)
- Example: Flow and Content Rubric Items in Short writing
- Short Writing Assignment #1: Evolution and Social Behavior (600 words)
- Prepare your answer and submit it in the following way:
- Use this Google Form to evaluate four peer papers.
- Back evaluations are due Thursday, October 8, 11:59pm.
3. "Advanced" Techniques for Scoring
- If you collect numeric scoring from peer reviewers, you will want to learn how to sum up and average those scores. With spreadsheets, you do this with a "pivot table". It's a daunting thing, but once you do it a few times it's magic.
- One reason to add scoring is to use peer reviews to "pre-sort" answers. You can then refine the sort with your own scoring, using the pre-sort as a baseline. The fewer scores you need to adjust, the more you might assume that the rubric was applied effective by the peers.
