Research Paper Peer Review Worksheet
Please remember that simple YES or NO answers are not acceptable in a peer review; try your best to help your classmate by giving honest, constructive criticism. You can say what they did well, but you should also point out areas that you found confusing or boring or that need significant work.
Introduction & Thesis
1. How effective is the introduction? Did it grab your attention? Did it make you want to read more? Why or why not? Explain. How could the introduction be improved? Give the writer a suggestion.
1. Are the paragraphs arranged logically? Could they be arranged differently to make more sense? If yes, how?
Integration of Evidence from Sources
1. Reread the body of the paper.
1a. Is there too much evidence from sources? Not enough evidence from sources? Too much/ too little personal stuff, examples, illustrations?
1b. Do the sources take over the paper, or is the majority of the writing done by the student? Does the writer provide enough connecting sentences in the paper that explain, interpret, and/or analyze evidence from sources and connect it clearly to the topic? Evaluate the balance of evidence in the body of the paper and point out any problem areas.
2a. Are there too many/not enough quotes? Too much/not enough paraphrasing? No paraphrases at all? Evaluate the balance the writer achieves (or does not achieve) between quotes and paraphrases.
1. How well does the writer conclude his/her paper? Does he/she provide a final analysis/interpretation of the main points without simply repeating exact wording from earlier in the paper? Is the reader left with a final comment or thought?
You, as a reader, should be left with something that will make you keep thinking about the topic. Explain if you think the conclusion is thoughtful or not, and if necessary, give a suggestion for improvement.
1. Does the paper feel “jumpy” or “choppy”? Would transitions help to make the connections clearer? Where does the writer need to work on improving his/her transitions (between sentences and/or paragraphs)?
