Have two due dates for peer review assignments

(43)
For assignments that are setup for peer review, it would be useful to have two different due dates:
  • One for the students initial submission that will be reviewed by their peers
  • A second one for completing assigned peer reviews

 

In the current implementation, there is only one due date, which appears to be the due date for a students initial submission.  I infer this from the fact that it is the default date for assigning peer reviews to students.  From what my students have told them, once peer reviews are assigned they show up on their to-do list, but are already late since the due date is the only date for the assignment.

 

I think a clearer implementation would be to have an additional due date for the peer reviews, so that they don't appear to be late as soon as they are assigned.

Agreed! I wonder if there's a way that the Canvas Community can merge the votes/ideas from this idea and https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/8154-add-due-date-for-completing-peer-review ? I think they're functionally the same....

Please consider what peer review is used for. The author of a submission needs feedback. They also need time to integrate feedback into their revision drafts. If there is no feedback to work with the author suffers. The lack of a due date on peer review activities excludes the activity from the mental workflow scheduling. With no trigger to begin or end the activity of peer review, the Panic Monster does not awaken to drive away the Instant Gratification Monkey and let the Rational Decision Maker take over! (Tim Urban: Inside the mind of a master procrastinator | TED Talk )

 

A due date for (and possibly a participation point ) for peer review could drastically improve the odds of every writer getting some feedback . . . and improve the chances of receiving it in time to make proper use of it. Placing an end date in the same area that the peer review assignment time/day control already exists would be a boon to writers in Canvas courses.

Yes, this is a necessary function for all of us writing instructors.  Please fix the peer review functionality as now it is virtually useless.

We need to be able to set due dates for peer reviews so students get timely feedback! Come on Canvas folks, this is Covid-19 and everyone is teaching online. Peer reviews are a way to get students interacting so they don't feel isolated. It takes an extra hour of grading time to manually check whether students submitted peer reviews on time to meet my communicated deadline. PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP!

Yes please, we need this. I am trying the Peer Review feature for the first time this quarter and finding it is not useful because of the lack of a built-in due date and the inability to use CrocDocs for feedback.

Is there an updated status on this with a second Peer Review submission deadline. We are having alot of student abuse this system and any help on this would be appreciated.

I spend way too much time in back and forth conversations with students every semester about the due dates for peer reviews. Students are confused when an assignment due date isn't listed in Canvas. Instructure, you can immediately solve this issue by allowing multiple due dates!

It is necessary to have both dates for sure. It is very misleading and difficult to follow, the way it is setup right now. I would appreciate a revision.

Bump bump bump--please do something about peer review, Canvas. It is useless right now.

Since we are unable to set due dates for students to complete their assigned peer reviews, I have set the "available until" date to use as the due date. However, I found out that students can still submit an assigned peer review for a discussion after the "available until" date has elapsed. Is this correct functionality? I thought/hoped that the discussion AND assigned peer reviews would be locked after the "available until" date has elapsed.

Peer review is a great feature. Unfortunately, the execution to enforce timely peer reviews on Canvas appears to be a total mess.

I need this not just for peer review but for anytime my students make corrections to an assignment. I need to be able to see if they submitted their first draft on time, but then I want them to be able to resubmit with corrections to improve their grade later without the assignment being marked as late. If I change the due date to the revision due date, then the students who did submit the first draft late are no longer marked as late.
