Manually assigning peer reviews allows you to choose which students will be assigned peer reviews.
Note: When manually assigning peer reviews, students can complete their assigned peer reviews without having to post their own discussion reply first. If you require students to post to the discussion before being able to complete a peer review, you must automatically assign peer reviews.
Click the Select Student drop-down menu.
View Assigned Peer Reviews
Assigned peer reviews appear underneath the students name. A check mark  indicates a peer review as been completed. A caution triangle  indicates a peer review still needs to be completed.
