In this activity, you will review the final report submitted by one of your colleagues (or a group of your colleagues) and provide constructive recommendations and suggestions to improve the report. Peer review is an essential part of academic and professional work. Review allows other colleagues and collaborators to give you constructive feedback so you can improve a piece of writing or analysis. Constructive feedback involves both identifying for the author what is done well and what could be improved. Feedback can and should cover all areas of the report including content, presentation of ideas and information, style, and formatting.
Read the report once through in its entirety.
Complete the review by answering the questions in the form below. Whenever possible, provide specific examples or recommendations using page and paragraph numbers.
If desired, provide additional comments / annotations on the rough draft itself.
Submit your review as a Word or PDF document electronically via Canvas.
Also, print out as many copies as there are group members plus 1 additional copy to hand in the day the review is due. Give one copy to the instructor for credit and hand all other copies + the annotated rough draft to the report authors.
