The Peereval application is unavailable as of April 19, 2018 due to changes made to the myCourses web services by the vendor. These changes have broken student access to the myCourses integration for the Peereval application. You are receiving this notice as you have created an evaluation on Peereval since January, 2017.
Peereval was developed locally at RIT, it is not a myCourses/Brightspace tool. We do not have development staff to address fixes to this application. To prevent further disruption of courses with the end of the semester faculty who require peer evaluations for their grading can contact Academic Technology Support this semester for assistance.
ATS will manually create myCourses surveys to replicate the Peereval questionnaire.
To request these surveys please supply the following information in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Survey creation can take up to 24 hours for the work to be completed.
For each course request:
- Course Number
- Group Category in the course to use for the surveys
- If you have an existing Peereval evaluation you want your questions based on please supply the name of that evaluation., otherwise the short-form template from Peereval will be used.
Peereval.rit.edu remains available for the short term for instructors to access the results of prior evaluations.
If you have any further questions regarding Peereval please contact Academic Technology Support at email@example.com.
What is PeerEval?
PeerEval is an online peer evaluation tool developed at RIT which integrates with our course management system, myCourses. It provides a way for students to share their own impressions regarding how their groups worked together on a project.
PeerEval offers flexibility in course evaluations by allowing a course to have multiple evaluations associated with it. These could be used for evaluations of the same group through out the academic term, or evaluations may be associated with different group categories to evaluate a variety of course activities.
What Are The Benefits?
- Using a peer evaluation tool lets you gather feedback from students directly, instead of only evaluating their participation in a group based on the final deliverable.
- Using PeerEval in a formative fashion will allow an instructor to receive feedback from group members about how well a group is working together throughout the entire process instead of only at the end of the project. This is useful in that the instructor could intervene if needed before a problem becomes an impediment to student success.
Instructors and students can always access PeerEval at https://peereval.rit.edu
On accessing PeerEval you will be asked to log in to myCourses if you are not already logged in with your RIT Computer Account. A navigation bar link and a home page widget are also available on myCourses for instructors to add to a course if desired.
The main page will list the current credit-bearing course offerings you are associated with.
