Assignment Review

We can share assignments with our peer consultants for two distinct purposes:

  1. To have peer consultants read the assignment from a student's perspective and provide feedback on how they understand the assignment guidelines. Faculty can then use this information to revise the assignment instructions if necessary;

  2. To familiarize the peer consultants with the assignment guidelines as well as how they can best support students in completing the assignment. Instructors can tailor the support students receive by sharing additional information about the assignment and how it fits into overall course goals.

To share assignments for either purpose, send an email to WaCC Director Karen Rosenberg at karenros@uw.edu
