FILE SUBMISSION: Videos will be submitted and viewed using MediaMarkup. Please see MediaMarkup Instructions for information.
This allows you the opportunity for further feedback from your peers, and garner more tips for revision before your final project is due. Also, by using your critical thinking skills, this will help you revise your own project by seeing good and bad things in others’ projects. You will be evaluated on the quality of comments you provide, not on the comments you receive.
ASSIGNMENT DIRECTIONS & EXPECTATIONS:
You can provide comments on the videos that are both specific to a certain aspect or moment (small edits) and greater criticisms that address issues of structure, science or style. For the purpose of the peer review, you must provide both small edit suggestions and larger criticisms.
1. Group projects you are supposed to review are indicated on the Google spreadsheet. All videos are uploaded to MediaMarkup and have their designated group numbers in the file name. All the videos can be accessed on MediaMarkup under the “Tufts-wide” tab and have a EnvBio file name indicator.
2. Using MediaMarkup, provide specific production or content comments (small edits).
3. For general comments, larger criticisms, and other suggestions, use the peer review template given below. Provide at least two comments per “Appealing” and “Needs Improvement” headings, per category
4. Provide constructive feedback: Don’t just describe what is good, but provide suggestions of what and how to change and also what the exact problem was, or how it was a problem.
5. Put in what you want to receive: make thoughtful, constructive comments that are what you would want to receive to help you revise your project.
TWO (2) peer reviews due electronically via Trunk by 5:00 pm, November 30, 2012.
