Peer Review for Group Assignments is broken and needs to be fixed to be an actual, usable feature.
I am fine with assigning reviews by individual students, but they need to be assigned a group (not an individual) to review. Currently students are sometimes given multiple members of the same group to review (not their own group), so they, therefore, see the same group assignment multiple times to review. We need them to review the assignments from different groups (so if we assign 4 peer reviews, they need to from 4 different groups).
Students cannot make any edits to their rubrics or comments once they have hit "enter/return."The students freak out and contact the teaching team who also cannot make any changes to their rubrics. We can delete their partial or duplicate comments. Students need to be able to edit their own peer reviews (or at least submit a newer one like they can with assignments).
Many students are unclear who they were assigned to peer review and/or if they have finished the review and want validation. I send them to this help page https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Student-Guide/How-do-I-know-if-I-have-a-peer-review-assignment-to... but the process needs to be clearer.
Students will make comments but forget to complete the rubrics and therefore be shown as having not completed the peer review. They need some message from Canvas to let them know their peer review is only partly complete (and it would help the teaching team if we knew because we have to look at each assigned peer review that is marked with an ! to see if it is really completely missing or only the rubric is missing. Another icon here would be extremely helpful.
The teaching team needs to be able to use Speed Grader to grade Peer Reviews the way we use it to grade discussion boards.
