Question

How can I get students to edit each other's essays?

Solution

A forum or wiki would be a good choice for peer editing. The wiki has the advantage of allowing peer editors to mark up the original document but if formatting is part of the assessment, then exchanging files in a discussion forum would be better (student could use Track Changes in Word to edit).

Solution 2

In "Workshop" activity, students can assess each others work.
