How do I view revisions side-by-side and provide feedback on peer review?

See revisions side-by-side and give students feedback on their revisions and peer reviews in the Revision Spotlight.

Updated over a week ago

See how many students have done at least one revision, and gain insight into whether writers are making changes based on the reviews they received.

To see Revision Spotlights, navigate to the Assignment Dashboard.

Dashboard Highlights:

  • 1+ Revisions: This dial shows what percent of students have completed at least one revision. For example, if the number read 48%, you’d know that 48% of students have revised their writing at least once.

  • Smiley Icon: This percentage shows how many students have successfully addressed comments left by peer reviewers.

    • When a student completes a peer review, they should leave comments to help the writer understand how they can improve their writing. Writers select which comments they'd like to address in their revision. When the revised writing is submitted, the next review can see which comments the writer focused on and click a smiley face to indicate that the comment was successfully addressed.

    • A 0% in this section would indicate one of two things: Students are not leaving helpful review comments, or writers are not revising to address feedback. Either way, 'Revision Spotlights' can help you determine what’s going on.
