Peer Evaluators’ Responsibilities

Peer evaluators should do the following:

(1) Using markup functions (e.g. Track Changes in Microsoft Word or Commenting in Adobe), annotate the presenter’s draft.

(2) Write a 1-2 page note addressed to the presenter. In it, do the following:

(a) Summarize the core ideas of the paper in your own words.

(b) Discuss the strengths of the paper.

(c) Discuss the areas in need of improvement.

(d) Think of the main issue at stake in the paper. Play the role of friendly critic to the presenter. How would you challenge the presenter’s arguments?

Come prepared to discuss all of these issues in class.
