How Do I Manually Assign Peer Reviews for an Assignment?

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 submit their own assignment first. In order to require students to complete their own assignment before being able to complete a peer review, you must automatically assign peer reviews.
