How Do I Create a Peer Review Discussion?

When creating a discussion, you can require students to comment and provide feedback of another student's work. Learn more about peer review discussions.

Peer reviews can only be created with graded discussions and do not have an anonymous option.

For peer reviews, you can 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.


Open Discussions

In Course Navigation, click the Discussions link.


Add Discussion

Click the Add Discussion button to create a new discussion.


Select Graded Option

Create a graded discussion by selecting the Graded checkbox [1].

Select the Require Peer Reviews checkbox [2].


Assign Peer Reviews

Determine if you are going to manually assign peer reviews [1] or automatically assign peer reviews [2]. Select the option you prefer.


Automatically Assign Peer Reviews

If you automatically assign peer reviews, the menu will expand. In the Reviews Per User field [1], enter the number of reviews each student will be required to complete. In the Assign Reviews field [2], use the calendar icon or manually enter in the date students should submit their peer review by.

Note: If automatically assigning peer reviews, the assign reviews date must come after the discussion due date. If left blank, Curve will use the discussion due date as the peer review due date.


Save and Publish

If you are ready to publish your discussion, click the Save & Publish button [1]. If you want to create a draft of your discussion and publish it later, click the Save button [2].


When your discussion is saved in a draft state, you can return to the page and publish it at any time by clicking the Publish button.
