Peer Reviewing and Grading Criteria
Note that the actual procedure for the oppositions will be made available in the Moodle platform.
The Special Project (C-essay) module involves a process of peer reviewing with a fellow student or students. The aim with peer reviewing is to experience how your own, and another student’s Special Project develops from stage to stage. As you give and receive feedback, you will become aware of the process of essay writing, and hopefully become a better writer in the process. Try to provide your fellow student with constructive critique that he/she can work on in order to improve the essay. You can point out grammar mistakes, but the structure, content and the use of quotations is where the main focus should lie.
Peer reviewing (in the discussion forum in pairs)
When you read your fellow student’s essay please think of the following:
Aims and Structure Stage
Everything up to the Analysis section: Introduction, Background (if necessary), Aims and Approach, Previous Research and a potential structure for the main body of the assignment. Please use the table for peer reviewing purposes. The feedback table below will be loaded up separately in Moodle.
|Is there a clear thesis statement/explanation of intent?|
|Is the thesis statement too broad? Does the intent signaled by the thesis statement need to be narrowed down?|
|Is the introduction section clear?|
|If there is a background section, is this background relevant to the essay?|
|Is the theoretical approach, including concepts explained and understandable? Are there indications concerning HOW the concepts will be used in the essay?|
|Is the structure of the essay coherent with the thesis statement? Do headings adhere to the ideas that are within the range of the thesis statement? Can you “see” the essay”?|
|Secondary sources: are there enough secondary sources? Do the secondary sources seem relevant to the focus of the essay?|
