Engaging students in collaborative learning

Peergrade is an educational tool that increases critical thinking and collaborative learning through peer to peer feedback.

Benefits of adopting Peergrade & peer feedback

Peergrade allows teachers to create a unique learning experience for their students. Teachers create assignments and rubrics that go along with them. While students are giving feedback the teacher gets an overview of all submissions and feedback.

With built in anonymity and the ability to flag harsh or unhelpful feedback students can trust that feedback process in Peergrade.

  • Peergrade helps with training critical thinking skills. Students improve their argumentation skills and learn intellectual humility when receiving critical and constructive feedback.‌

    Dr. Erik Jentges, Educational Developer @ ETH Zurich

  • Peergrade is one of the best peer feedback platforms around - possibly the best one. We use Peergrade in connection with essays in our Academic Writing course and Grammar and Perspectives on Language course. Our students have benefitted a lot from doing peer feedback on each other’s essays in Peergrade.

    Kim Ebensgaard Jensen, lecturer @ University of Copenhagen

  • I teach an introductory Python coding class. I use Peergrade to have my students evaluate each other's code. I tried using other tools, but they were not as user friendly and did not support my needs like Peergrade.‌

    Jon Jasperson, professor & academic director @ Texas A&M University

  • We love Peergrade. It gives us and our students a unique way to interact and test their skills.

    Karan Dehghani, instructor @ CodeDoor

  • I use Peergrade because formative assessment creates better learning for students and because it is a huge time saver.

    Mathilde Baltzer Marlet, learning designer @ Copenhagen Business School

  • I get more fun from working with student hand-ins. Instead of a lot of repetitive work I can direct my energy towards describing typical errors for students to be aware of. This is so much more challenging and inspiring than traditional grading. Furthermore, the students are forced to put a little effort into the necessary post-treatment of their own work.

    Mikael Klintorp, teacher @ Espergærde Gymnasium og HF

  • Peergrade helps me ensure that students are zeroing in on the elements I need them to be evaluating in their peers' writing. It helps students be more reflective on their own writing strengths and areas for improvement.

    Lindsay Woodard, history teacher @ Laguna Blanca School

  • Peergrade is the best thing to happen to writing in a long, long time. With a well-designed rubric, I can teach students to become editors themselves and shift some of the burden of grading from my shoulders to theirs. Students can spend far more time with essays than I ever could.

    Willard Volding, ELA teacher @ Strake Jesuit College Preparatory

  • Peergrade gives student writing an audience other than just me. The students have to think about the rubric on which they are being assessed in order to assess other people's writing on the same rubric. I use the same or similar rubrics over multiple assignments and this gives them a way to improve their writing by making sure they are meeting the criteria of the writing assignment.

    Heidi Peterson, ELA/math teacher @ Chicago Public Schools

  • It's probably the best app available for encouraging students to take responsibility for their own learning.

    Tony Jones, science teacher @ Taradale High School

  • I use Peergrade so my students can get better feedback and be able to constantly refine and revise their work. It creates a culture of learning in my classroom; it's not always about the points!

    Sarah Rivera, STEM teacher @ Perry High School
