More about PeerMark 

PeerMark™ is a peer review assignment tool. Instructors can create and manage PeerMark assignments that allow students to read, review, and evaluate one or many papers submitted by their classmates.

How to create a PeerMark assignment

  1. Create a Turnitin 2 assignment
  2. Once created you will be taken to the Submission Inbox
  3. Select the Green Gear on the right to open the PeerMark Manager
  4. In the PeerMark Assignment tab enter the title, points, instructions and dates for the assignment
  5. Select Additional Settings to add even more review options 

The advanced distribution options allow instructors to choose to exclude student papers from distribution or specify which student papers a student(s) will have to review. PeerMark will automatically distribute papers to students but an instructor may choose specific student pairings which will then add an exception to the PeerMark distribution which will adjust its logic according to the instructor’s rules.

Select Save and Continue
