Peer Review Overview
Peer Review Research Article Critique Assignment
“As a peer reviewer, your job is not to provide answers. You raise questions; the writer makes the choices. You act as a mirror, showing the writer how the draft looks to you and pointing out areas which need attention.” -S. Williams (University of Hawaii at Manoas Writing Program)
As a peer reviewer, you are expected to provide appropriate feedback, based on the prompts for the Research Article Critique writing assignment and the prompts below. Your responses should show evidence of real consideration of the students writing and be of appropriate depth and length.
Peer Review Feedback is worth a total of 5 points. Points will be deducted for feedback that is superficial, lacking evidence of reflection, and/or not addressing all prompts.
Point out the strengths as well as the weaknesses of the document.
Offer suggestions, not commands.
Editorial comments should be appropriate and constructive. There is no need to be rude. Be respectful and considerate of the writer’s feelings.
Be sure that your comments are clear and text-specific so that your peer will know what you are referring to (for example, terms such as “unclear” or “vague” are too general to be helpful).
As a reader, raise questions that cross your mind, points that may have not occurred to your peer author.
Try not to overwhelm your peer with too much commentary. Follow the feedback form and the issues you are supposed to address.
Reread your comments before returning to the faculty. Make sure all your comments make sense and are easy to follow.
