Peer Review Groups are used during assignment activities for peer review and interaction. These groups are consistent throughout the term or course, allowing a group of students to stay together and deepen interaction. Students must be assigned to one group, if you do not want to use groups, then you’ll have just one default group.
Creating Peer Review Groups
Select the Peer Review Groups tab on the top. If needed, click the Synchronize roster button and YouSeeU will automatically add students from a course into the Default Group. This is helpful if students have recently been added or dropped from the roster. NOTE: Clicking the Synchronize Roster button may not trigger any action if the students in the Default group accurately reflects the current roster.
Add groups by naming a group and clicking the Add button. Then drag and drop students to reassign them from one group to another. Finally, click Save to finalize the group membership.
Using Peer Review Groups for a Group Project Assignment
If you want to assign your peer review groups for a Group Project assignment, you will need to select the participants for that project as Educator Formed as opposed to Student or System formed. After the assignment is created, you can then setup groups and choose to copy your peer review groups.
