From the quiet reflection, will come even moreeffective action.” – Peter DruckerPeer ReviewCritiquing classmates’ academic work can be challenging. At first, you might be tempted to provide general positive comments. Using a positive tone with others is always a good idea because it opens your recipient to your comments. However, providing factual observations and asking questions can be more valuable to your classmates. This detailed approach will also allowyou to engage in more substantive discussion about others’ work and the topics covered. How to Conduct a Peer ReviewReviewing someone else’s work is a lot like evaluating sources, which you did earlier in thiscourse. As you review a classmate’s essay, presentation, or forum post, consider the followingguiding questions: Is the information current?Is the information accurate and true?Does your classmate present the information in an authoritative way, using reference and citations? Is the product clear and easy to understand?
Is the content focused on only one side of the argument? Is the information all connected, or related to the overall topic?What is your overall impression of the project itself?If you have suggestions to make or concerns about areas in which your classmate did not supportinformation or present it well, be kind but clear about your thoughts.Scholarly Research on the WebOnline Consumer SourcesThroughout our course, we have mainly focused on academic sources.
