Peer Review Prompt

Students across the globe create incredible multimedia projects. Look at the collections of student-created multimedia below.



Digital Storytelling

Choose TWO examples from the projects you just reviewed. They must be from different genres of multimedia.


Use the 4 Core Criteria below (adapted from Virginia Kuhn) to assess your selected samples of student-created multimedia you chose from the list. Use the criteria below to guide your “peer review” of the samples. How well do they satisfy them? How could they be improved? Make sure to also follow the rules of good peer review etiquette.

Conceptual core

  • The strength and clarity of the project’s thesis or central question.

Research competence

  • The volume, quality, and variety of resources utilized in making the project.

Creative realization and innovation

  • How well the vision of the project has been accomplished. It’s about how well digital resources enhance and illuminate the project’s thesis.
  • Does the project achieve an effect that could not be achieved on paper?

Relationship between form and content

  • The fit between the thesis of the project and the design of the project.


Please post the link to both samples and several paragraphs of critical peer review on the Citizen21 CampusPress site.

Then, submit your PUBLISHED Citizen21 CampusPress post link to Canvas to receive a digital badge!
