Another important learning skill is peer review. Reviewing the work of others who completed a similar assignment provides the authors of the other work with another perspective on their work. The reviewer also has an opportunity to see how others worked through the requirements and challenges associated with the project.

  1. The final assignment for this course is your opportunity to review and critique the resources selected for other groups. Review the Group Projects from each group.

    For the Group list you are reviewing, pick 2 of their "best" resources for evaluation. Use the 5 point total good / could be better (constructive) rating comparison evaluation to arrive at a score out of 5 for each.
    Provide feedback on at least 2 Group lists as a numerical score and notes about your rating. Post your reviews to the Peer Review and Feedback discussion for the Group you review. Try to spread out the formal reviews. Provide a review for a project that hasn't received any feedback or has fewer reviews than the others. Provide feedback on as many as you want - but review at least two.

  2. Review the Collaboration and Group Projects student guide and comment. Were the suggestions helpful to you and your project group? Is there anything that you would add based on your experience working in online groups in the class? The Collaboration Feedback 2 assignment is an opportunity to provide additional feedback on collaboration, now that the final project is finished. Although this is similar to a previous assignment, you should have new information with the additional experience.

  3. Learning Literacies - In addition to the course topics, we reviewed the six Learning Literacies (Find, Use, Protect, Make, Solve, Share) that are critical life-skills for everyone these days. Provide your feedback by completing the Learning Literacies questionnaire.

  4. Go back to the Week 1 discussion and review your own Introductions and expectations posts. Look at your first I wonder... assignment question. What do you think? Were your expectations met? Did you find answers to your initial question? What did you do that helped you achieve your goals for this course? Is there anything that you might have done differently throughout the quarter? Post 2-3 sentence summary of your thoughts in the final I Think... assignment.

  5. Last chance - submit X. Extra Credit assignments to improve your overall course grade.

  6. If you want to say goodbye to your group and classmates, please do - Thanks and best wishes.

Thanks to everyone for all your hard work.

Best wishes.
