Getting started How do I get started?

Plan

iPeer offers three types of peer evaluations. Consider which is most useful for your course's group work.

  • Simple Evaluations: students evaluate group members by distributing an instructor-set number of points (e.g., 100) among the members.
  • Rubrics Evaluations: students evaluate group members based on specific criteria established by the instructor (similar to a multiple-choice questionnaire).
  • Mixed Evaluations: students evaluate group members using a combination of the Simple and Rubrics evaluations.

Creating an iPeer course based on your Canvas course

  3. Click on Courses.
  4. Click on Add Course based on Canvas.
  5. If this is your first time using iPeer, you will be prompted to authenticate into Canvas using your CWL.

      • After completing these steps, a new 'muted' column will be created in the Canvas gradebook.
