Dear Elementary Latinists,
An OPTIONAL round of Peer Review is due Friday, December 4, by noon (EST).
This round is intended especially for those of you who missed either Round I or Round II. If your current Peer Review Grade is 90 points or higher, you are welcome to submit a review, but the benefits will be minimal.
Unlike other rounds, this round will be focused on you. That is, you’ll fill out a form on yourself — the usual questions, but all aimed at you and your contributions to teamwork. Hence, there will be only one form to fill out.
The link to the Review Form has been sent to your Skidmore email address. The form will be live for two days, starting noon on Wednesday, before closing Friday.
Below are the guidelines for filling in the form. Please note the benefits and the penalties.
The form asks reviewers to rate themselves on aspects of their participation, and the result is an overall rating of 0% to 100% for the review period. These ratings, when aggregated, determine the number of peer review points the reviewer receives.
EXAMPLE. Say it’s possible to earn 30 review points for the current review period, and that a reviewer gives themself an overall 85% rating. The reviewer therefore earns 26 review points (85% of 30).
The review form also calls for written feedback. Thoughtful comments will garner additional review points.
IMPORTANT. Late reviews will not be accepted. Please don’t ask. If the Peer Review portion of your grade is important to you, be sure to participate on time.
Finally, please note these technical points:
- This work is probably better done on a laptop than a phone, due to the formatting.
- Please be sure your answers line up with your intentions. There’s always one student who means “ALWAYS” but enters “NEVER” instead.
- You will receive a copy of your review by email. The sender will be “Do not email@example.com” — a spammy-looking address, so be sure to monitor your junk email folder.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
