Peer Edit uses a library of pre-written comments to assemble a comprehensive feedback document. A student writer can then use that feedback document to improve his or her essay and writing skills. Peer Edit greatly enhances the efficiency and effectiveness of peer editing by eliminating the need for student editors to recall the specific rules of writing and use their own language when providing feedback.
The effectiveness of essay peer editing often suffers because student writers lack the proper language, skills, and training to accurately critique their classmates' papers. With Peer Edit, students simply click on check boxes for the errors they encounter in an essay and an accurately written feedback document is generated and e-mailed to the student writer.
As schools and universities around the world continue to bolster their pedagogical effectiveness by adopting iPads for in-class use, Peer Edit stands as an excellent example of how technology can be used to improve learning and enable student success. Give your students the tools and language they need to provide exceptional feedback during essay peer review exercises. Reclaim classroom hours by reducing the amount of time spent in one-on-one writing instruction. Watch your student's writing scores improve with Peer Edit for iPad and iPhone.
Peer Edit was developed by a college English professor with extensive secondary experience and is appropriate for middle school through graduate-level university academics.
