Feedback Fruits is a self and peer review tool that aims to help teachers build engaging learning activities that spark students’ critical thinking. The two Feedback Fruits tools currently being piloted at Deakin are the Group Member Evaluation and Peer Feedback, both of which are integrated into our learning management system through LTI and API integration.
Group Member Evaluation
The Group Member Evaluation tool streamlines the way students assess their peers’ collaboration skills. The teacher specifies the criteria students are to use to evaluate their peers’ contribution to group work, they can specify areas that require the student to elaborate on and follow each student’s progress through the built-in analytics. Deadlines can be set for students to complete different stages of the process and the feedback provided by students can be held back for moderation before being released for viewing.

The Peer Feedback tool structures the process of students reviewing their peers’ work. Students can hand in work for peer review as an individual or as part of a group. The hand in can be in the form of a document, audio file, video file or various other types of supported media. The teacher sets the criteria for peers to evaluate the hand in and they also have the option to allow for the late submission of work after the set deadline while maintaining clear visibility of these submissions through the built-in analytics.
