Step 3. Review (Optional)

Reviewing your own writing or providing anonymous feedback to your peers is an important part of becoming a better writer. If your teacher has assigned a peer or self-review you'll be tasked to review and leave feedback on the writing.

Click the 'Review' section on the assignment dashboard to begin reviewing. You can rate the writing using the rubric on the left. Reviewers can also highlight and leave comments.


Step 4. Revise

When you receive peer or teacher reviews, you will also receive comments alongside those reviews to help you improve your writing. Review this feedback to make improvements and submit your revisions for further feedback.

To view your feedback, click on the assignment to open it.

Ratings and comments will be shown on the rubric to the right of the writing. Click 'Revise Now' above the writing, or 'Revise' beneath the rubric to begin making changes to the writing.

Be sure to submit your revision to get more feedback from your teachers or peers.
