Peer Review Guide – L5 Identify | Explain | Apply


Peer-Reviewer 1: Reading Aloud: You need to read this work to the author. This can be done either in person (i.e. face-to-face) or you can read the work aloud and record that reading, sending the recorded file to the author. As you read, be sure to mark any rough spots on the paper (i.e., places that sound awkward or cause you to stumble in your reading). Once you are done, number each of those spots you marked and then systematically talk about what you see/hear going on with each of those marks with the author (again, either in person or in a recording).

Peer-Reviewer 2: Read through the document like an editor. Mark all writing-level mishaps, make notes about confusing sentences, offer alteratives to word selection, and the like. Feel free to comment on content issues as well, but this is a writing-level approach to the text. (Be sure to initial the draft you reviewed).

Authors should revise their RR1s based on the feedback from the peer review. Include the marked-up RR1 with your final drafts on TH.


Peer-Reviewers – for thorough and effective reviews, peer reviewers can earn up to 20 points for a review.

Peer-Reviewee (i.e., author) – Authors who take the feedback into consideration before producing their final draft will receive 10 points per review (max of 2 reviews)
