DescriptionPeer Evaluation is a form of Peer Instruction in which students develop their critical and creative thinking skills by providing feedback on their classmates' work. One tool that facilitates Peer Review is  peerScholar, which was developed at the University of Toronto by Steve Joordens and Dwayne Pare. The peerScholar tool guides the students through three phases: writing, evaluating, and reflecting. PeerScholar makes it possible to incorporate written assignments into classes of any size, and does so in a way that is pedagogically more effective than relying on traditional "expert markers" for assessment.
