I'm trying peer review out for the first time, and I'd like to know whether I can have the students post their work in a discussion board and let them all look at everything before assigning peer reviews. In other words, if the assignment is due/closed on Tuesday, can I reopen it on Thursday and assign peer reviews, or does the thread lock when someone posts something?

Hi @genellera ,
Peer reviews can be assigned to post after the due date, and will only assign after the due date has passed. In this situation, you would want to have the "Until" date for the discussion/assignment be later than the due date, as described in this guide: https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Instructor-Guide/How-do-I-automatically-assign-peer-reviews-for-a...
You can also manually assign peer reviews if need be, which is described in this guide: https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Instructor-Guide/How-do-I-manually-assign-peer-reviews-for-a-disc...
In summary, as long as the "Until" date for a discussion is later than the "Due" date, students will be able to work on their peer reviews.
Let me know if that helps!
