Peer Review

Peer review will take up 15% of the grades for the project. This is for you to assign a grade to your peers in your group based on individual contribution to the project. For each review item you can grade your fellow group member from 0 to 10 by following a general marking standards of:

0 = extremely poor;
6 = average;
8 = good; and
10 = excellent.
To do the peer review, you may follow this link and evaluate each of your team members one at a time.

 A 5-digit security pin will be sent to each and everyone of you later today. You have to enter this pin everytime you perform the evaluation.

Please do not routinely assign a high score as this will result in an average score for everyone.  For this to work you have to give an honest assessment of your peers.
The purpose of the peer review is to make minor adjustment within the group. For example if grades for the project (excluding peer review, and individual report) is X% and let say the average peer review grade for the team is A. A particular member receives a peer review grade of Y (averaged for that individual) then his adjusted grade for the peer review would be X*Y/A.
Thus if every member give every other member a perfect score then each member will get the same adjusted grade for peer review ie X%*10/10=X% of 15 points.
And if every member give each other 3 points (average would be 3 points) then the adjusted grade for peer review will be X%*3/3 = X% of 15 points
Your peer review rating will not affect other teams.

Please complete the Peer Review by 12th Nov 2012, 11:59pm; failure to complete your peer review in time will result in losing your 15% for peer review.  The whole peer review will not take more than 10 minutes.
