Collaborative Writing and Peer Reviewing

Collaborative Writing

Peer Evaluation

One of the challenging parts of finishing a group project is doing evaluations on your peers. While it might be easier to say that everyone did a “fine job”, you want to emphasize the positives as well as things that could be worked in for future projects. 

Here are some items you may want to include:

  • fulfillment of agreed-upon responsibilities

  • dependability

  • cooperation

  • effort

  • quality and level of work

  • ability to meet deadlines

  • attendance at meetings

  • timeliness of contributions

You should decide what it means to meet these criteria successfully and what constitutes failure.

Your team might consider a separate evaluation form for your leader. The criteria to consider for a project leader’s evaluation might be these items:

  • ability to lead

  • fairness in assigning tasks

  • ability to resolve conflicts

  • ability to motivate

  • attendance at meetings

Remember, when doing these evaluations, be constructive with your words. Be careful not to include a list of negatives. Highlight the positives. Offer suggestions where they can make improvements.
