Differences between Peergrade & Eduflow

Peergrade is completely focused on helping you to run online peer reviews. In Eduflow this is of course also possible, but the main difference is that you can combine different learning activities (submission, peer review, reaction).

Because of the way Eduflow is built, it gives you more flexibility and control over the peer review session compared to Peergrade.

There are still some features missing in Eduflow right now, that are currently available in Peergrade. The main ones are rubric weights, flagging, feedback conversations, and problematic submissions.

We have these on our roadmap which you can find here:

There are also things available in Eduflow, that are not possible in Peergrade, such as:

  • Group member reviews

  • Inherit peer review allocation across peer review sessions

  • Create groups as instructor

  • Edit the feedback reflection rubric (reaction questions)

  • Resubmission flows

  • Instructor review with a different feedback rubric

  • Use the rich text editor when giving feedback (yes it's possible to add pictures and math notations while giving feedback!)

  • Give video feedback

  • React to feedback with a video

And much much more! We truly believe that Eduflow, once you get to know the product, will give you a much more flexible and powerful experience when running peer review sessions online. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us whenever something comes up, we're happy to help you get started!

To make the transition easier for you, we've recorded a video that takes you through the process of setting up peer review sessions in Eduflow- just like you're used to in Peergrade.

Eduflow's Peer Review template

One of the easiest and quickest ways to get started with peer review sessions in Eduflow is by copying our Peer Review Template to your own account.

This template reflects a live session in Peergrade (a peer review session without open dates or deadlines)

Pre-made Peer Review Flow

Another quick way to get started with a peer review session from within Eduflow is by adding the pre-made peer review flow to your course.

Follow these steps to add this flow to your course:

  1. Login to Eduflow

  2. Go to the course where you want to run your peer review session

  3. Click '+ Add new'

  4. Scroll down until you see the header 'Flows'

  5. Select the first pre-made flow in this list: 'Peer review flow'

  6. Edit the name of the flow and the activities, and you're basically good to go!

Feedback Rubric

When creating a peer review session in Peergrade, we automatically guided you through the feedback rubric set up process.

In Eduflow you can find the feedback rubric in the settings page of each review activity (peer review, self review, instructor review, group member review). In the article that we'll share below you can learn how to create and edit your feedback rubric:

How to create and edit a feedback rubric

Do you want to learn how to replace the feedback rubric with a rubric you already created in another Eduflow course or activity? Then have a look at the video below:

Eduflow Tutorial: How to replace a rubric from another course

Feedback Reflection Rubric

A big difference between Peergrade and Eduflow, is that Eduflow allows you to edit the reaction question learners get when reacting on the feedback they received.

In Peergrade learners were asked the following question:

How useful is the feedback?

  • Not useful at all.

  • Not very useful.

  • Somewhat useful. Could be more elaborate.

  • Very useful. Minor things could be better.

  • Extremely useful.

Additional Comments (optional)

In Eduflow you can edit the reaction rubric - which we call Feedback Reflection Rubric. By default Eduflow asks these questions when learners are reflecting on the feedback they received:

What did you learn from the feedback you received?

  • Text answer

How do you plan on using that feedback to improve?

  • Text answer

How useful is the feedback?

  • Not useful at all.

  • Not very useful.

  • Somewhat useful. Could be more elaborate.

  • Very useful. Minor things could be better.

  • Extremely useful.

In the article below you learn how you can create and edit the feedback reflection rubric:
