PeerWise is an external application where students create questions related to a course and then answer, rate, and comment on questions submitted by their peers. By generating, answering, and evaluating questions, students build a better understanding of subject matter.

The PeerWise tool is stored on servers outside Canada. Do not enter information specific to your course or students such as student names or student numbers. Have students use aliases or nicknames (for example Student1, Student2). Obtain student consent before using PeerWise, and have an alternative activity for those students who do not consent.
Students create their own course related multiple choice assessment questions, and also answer, rate and discuss questions created by their peers.
