Peer review across groups


When setting up peer-reviewed assignments, it would be very useful to assign peer-reviewers automatically across groups to ensure that a person from group A is always assigned to a person from group B without having to do it manually every time (I am thinking of weekly assignments). 

The obvious use case for this would be to allow for a mentorship/critical friend relationship to be built between students who are taking the same course but are in different working groups (e.g. teacher training). In this sense, another option would be to allow for peer-review partners to be replicated for all peer-reviewed assignments, so that peer-reviewers would only need to be set up once.

Thanks for sharing this idea. We have a number of conversations currently underway with requests for enhancement to peer reviews and groups. While these conversations were initiated some time ago, they remain actively monitored by our product teams. Please add your support to one or more of the following:

Assign Peer Reviews by Student Group - Canvas Community

Peer Review - for Groups to review Other Groups - Canvas Community

Peer Evaluation for Group Projects - Canvas Community

We've archived this one to remove the duplication and to prevent the threads in the existing discussions from branching off.
