Practices for anonymous peer review


(Jamie Saxon) #1

Hi Folks –

I’m looking for suggestions and practices for peer review. I want students to look at and “grade” each other’s work (saves us time and effort!?). My first instinct is that I would want this review to be anonymous, to avoid social awkwardnesses. Two queries:

  1. it’s not clear if GitHub makes this at all possible – by default all contributions are linked to a user. Any suggestions for how to implement this?
  2. Perhaps my suggestion is not even desirable. Any “pedagogical” reactions?

Thanks –

Jamie
