Using Writable's Peer Review tool, students review and leave feedback on their peers' writing submissions.

Teachers can share this video with students to walk them through the steps of completing a peer review:


How to Complete a Peer Review

  1. Log in to Writable and click on the assignment to open up the Assignment Dashboard.

  2. Click on the 'Review' tile to begin.

    • Students can see how many reviews they've already completed and how many they've been assigned.

    • To ensure all submissions are peer-reviewed, we recommend students do not skip writing submissions.

    • We encourage students to take their time leaving good feedback on their assigned peer reviews, instead of trying to review as many submissions as possible. Only review the assigned number of peer submissions.

  3. Read the writing submission of an anonymous peer and evaluate it using the rubric on the right side of the screen. Start by selecting the star rating for a rubric item.

  4. After you select a star, leave a comment using a comment stem or write your own feedback to help your peers improve their writing.

  5. After completing the entire rubric and leaving helpful comments, click 'Submit'.

    ❗ Note: Once a review is submitted, it cannot be edited. Reviewers should keep this in mind and make sure to provide plenty of constructive feedback before they click submit.

  6. You can confirm that you have completed the assigned reviews on the assignment dashboard:
