Peer Review

There is no question in how effective trained peer review can be to students, especially in high school and higher education. Wikis offer adequate selection of means to provide peer review:

1. Editing and adding comments to peer works using the “comments” feature that work similarly to ones in Microsoft Word.
2. Editing a peer contribution and comparing the before/after state with a wiki version control system.
3. Discussing overall quality of work on wiki discussion pages.

All three ways of feedback and review can be used within a solid wiki-based peer review framework that is subject to future development.
