A Peer Review Process that Speaks Volumes
Exclusive to StudySync, our peer review feature is a collaborative learning tool that provides anonymous, randomized peer review assignments to students once they have completed their own assignment-- initiating a cycle of analyzing, writing, and revising, while providing students with critical, timely feedback.
Increase and Improve Writing in Your Classroom
No more passing papers or assigning groups. StudySync’s digital writing and peer review platform provides a direct read-write connection with frequent opportunities to easily and meaningfully respond to texts and review peers' work online.
Timely Critique and Review
Students receive timely, constructive feedback soon after an assignment is completed, encouraging effective, thoughtful revision and analysis of their own work. Peer Review helps reinforce the importance of the student’s voice as they write to express their own ideas to their peers.
Multiple Forms of Writing
Writing prompts and assignments focus on multiple forms of writing, including expository, narrative, and persuasive modes, while peer review provides students with open form space to express candid feedback.

Teachers are provided writing prompts and rubrics tied to literacy-based standards and performance tasks, plus can easily create their own prompts and rubrics based on particular learning goals and objectives.
