3pts: You’ll complete the peer review on time, following the instructions and demonstrating an average to below-average level of careful in your reading, offering a few helpful, concrete suggestions, but perhaps neglecting to turn your criticisms into suggestions here and there or taking other non-wowwing shortcuts. Your review will be somewhat well-written and somewhat perceptive, with few errors or typos.
2pts: You’ll complete most of the review but a bit late, mostly following the instructions. You’ll demonstrate a below-average effort overall, mechanically following the steps without offering helpful commentary or much in the way of concrete suggestions. Your review will be rushed, sloppily written, or unproofed.
1pt: You’ll complete the review on time but offer a half-ass effort that looks like you reviewed your classmates’ paper in a mad rush on your iPhone on the way to class.
0pts: You’ll not complete the review at all or do it too late to be of any use to your peer.
