How Do I Create a Peer Review Assignment?

When creating an assignment, you can require students to complete a peer review of another student's work.   

For peer reviews, you can choose to show the names of students in peer reviews or make them anonymous. You can also choose to manually assign peer reviews or automatically assign peer reviews. To complete the peer review, students are required to leave at least one comment. If you include a rubric, they are also required to complete the rubric.
