How do I sign up for the Peer Review Tool?

How to sign up the first Open Educational Resource tool from OpenSkill, the Peer Review Tool and how our team can support your students.

The Peer Review Tool is a digital platform that teaches students how to provide feedback on their peers’ writing. Instructors can create assignments and custom rubrics for students to use in their review of others. Students can upload their writing, using multiple drafts, and review.

By streamlining the review process and allowing for custom rubrics, the Peer Review Tool reinforces the importance of the review process and the strength of the writer’s critical thinking.
