Calibrated Peer Review (CPR) is a web-based application to incorporate more frequent writing assignments into your course, regardless of class size. By helping students learn how to evaluate each other, it allows for increased opportunities for feedback on written work without increasing the grading workload for instructors and TAs. Writing assignments help students to practice higher-order skills such as synthesis, analysis, and evaluation. The peer review component helps students learn to think more critically about their own work and the work of their peers. The training component of the CPR system provides a useful mechanism to help students learn how to be effective evaluators.
