By giving feedback, students strengthen their knowledge and retention and they practice arguing for their opinions. By receiving feedback, the students get an eye for good and less good aspects of their assignment.

Ensure a good execution
The teacher introduces the students to an assignment on which they are to give one another feedback.
The teacher delivers criteria (a rubric) or questions for the students to use as a guideline when writing their assignment and, later, give one another feedback. (5-10 min.)
"Don't be afraid of asking too much of the students. Because the feedback we got from the students was that they actually enjoyed the acitivites a lot."
Associate Professor Mia Skytte O'Tools and a colleague worked together to improve the students' ability to discuss their readings at a higher level. In order to do that they needed to structure the way in which students prepared for class.Read more 👉Læs mere 👉
Peergrade makes it easier for you to create peer feedback activities as the tool automates most of the process. When your students submit an assignment, Peergrade combines students, receives and delivers the feedback. Peer feedback can give a great learning experience and Peergrade makes the whole effort easier.
You start by creating an assignment and defining the deadline, how many peers each student should provide feedback for, whether it is an individual or a group delivery. When the students have handed in their assignment, Peergrade arranges to put the students together in pairs. To help your students provide qualified feedback, you can create a document listing the criteria that must be met in the assignment. If a student doesn't receive feedback, you as a teacher can always step in. To make sure that everyone receives feedback, each student should provide feedback to two others as a minimum.
