Peer Review is a process heralded by the New York State Department of Education. Based on the Tuning Protocol, a tool developed in the late-80's and early-90's at the Coalition of Essential Schools by David Allen and Joe McDonald, Peer Review is a protocol that allows educators to:

  • discuss their work and their students’ work within the context of the standards
  • demonstrate that their work is meeting or exceeding expectations
  • share and reflect in small groups


What am I supposed to do? Edit

At a Peer Review, each participant in a small group assumes a different role at different times.

Presenter Edit

  • explains the context of the Project
  • reviews the Project Plan Outline
  • shares student work samples
  • listens and responds to feedback

Reviewer Edit

  • listens to the presentation
  • provides written feedback
  • engages in a dialogue


What do I need to bring? Edit

A rubric is needed, and these can be teacher-created Edit

  • Review the goals you are trying to achieve and the related standard(s)
  • Determine what type of performances MEET as well as EXCEED that standard
  • Break down the student activities taking place on and off the computer (researching, writing, integrating technology, etc.)
  • Create a rubric using tools like Rubistar (allows you to copy and paste the rubric into your Project Plan)

Organize student work so that it can be examinedEdit

  • Select three (or more!) samples of student work from two students doing the project
  • Potential samples:
    • Kidspiration/Inspiration brainstorming map
    • written or typed drafts
    • visual storyboard
    • multimedia presentation in progress
    • final multimedia presentation
    • final essay with teacher comments
  • Print/photocopy & staple student work, and/or complete the Project Plan Outline online.

What do I do with the student work? Edit

Step 1: Review the rubric(s) and the student work
Step 2: Label how well the student performed based on the criteria established in your rubric (i.e., Excellent, Good, Fair, Poor)
Step 3: Provide a brief written comment (2-3 sentences) stating why the work was evaluated as such

How do I incorporate teacher resources? Edit

  • Identify the resources students used to implement the project
  • Samples: WebQuests, hotlists, TrackStars, Inspiration templates, handouts, etc.
  • Assess the effectiveness of those tools in light of the student work
