Providing and responding to peer feedback


When responding to peer feedback, it is best to:

  • thank the person
  • acknowledge the time they have spent
  • show that you have read it carefully by referring to something they have commented on.


Thanks for taking the time to give me feedback on my report, Lisa. You’ve given me some things to think about, especially your suggestions about the phrasing of the second paragraph. I will also check out the website you recommended.

When providing peer feedback on your classmates’ posts make sure to phrase your comments carefully and constructively.
