Peer Review and Evaluation for Horizon Project - April 23


Students will be given one project to evaluate. Initially, they will be given the original section on the topic from The Horizon Report to read. Then they will be directed to their designated projects for peer review and evaluation.

  1. User-Created Content
  2. Social Networking
  3. Mobile Phones
  4. Virtual Worlds
  5. New Scholarship and Emerging Forms of Publication
  6. Massively Multiplayer Educational Gaming

Students will be asked to assess the projects and provide feedback on the discussion pages of the relevant wiki project pages. Understanding that these are projects in progress (roughly at mid-point), they will be asked to assess the projects as they are now according to the criteria below.

Peer review students will be evaluated by their teachers according to the rubric that is linked below.

Students - Please be aware that this is a work in progress. The students are about half-way through their project time-line. As such, today we are evaluating their progress in the following areas:

Peer Evaluation Criteria

Quality of Content

  • Does the content (writing) make sense?
  • Can you identify any areas which need clarification?
  • Pose three questions that arise from your reading - it could be questions about ambiguity of content, questions that were not addressed, or questions that you had after reading it (you would like more information).


  • Look at the Discussion pages of the wiki pages - effective communication?
  • Do they need more?
  • Are they clear in their messages to each other?
  • Is there a sense of negotiation and collaboration?


  • Does the work appear to be equally shared?
  • Does there appear to be any difficulties by one or more members of the team?

Presentation - Layout and Design

  • amount and relevance of graphics and media - comment on that
  • Recommendations?
