This article is part of a series of steps to create a student peer assessment assignment in Canvas. Please be sure you have completed the steps in How do I set up a Google Form to complete a student peer assessment? before following the directions outlined in this article.
The processes described in this document are being explored as a way to implement peer assessments within Canvas. We don't yet know enough to say this is a "best practice". We will continue to update this document as we learn more. If you have found a different solution that works for you, we'd love to hear about it.
To use your newly created Google Form as a peer assessment within Canvas, complete the following steps.
Step 1 - Create the Embed Code
- On the Google Form you will embed in Canvas, click the Send button, found in the upper right corner of the Google Form.
- Click the < > tab in the pop up window
- Copy the embed code that appears under Embed HTML
- Click the X in the pop up window to close the window.
Step 2 - Embed the Google Form in a Canvas assignment
- On the NTN Gradebook page of your Canvas course, click +assignment to create a new assignment.
- Title the assignment and assign a point value for the Learning Outcomes as appropriate.
- Click HTML Editor to change the content space to HTML format.
- Paste the Embed code from Step 2 into the HTML Editor.
- Change the submission type to "No Submission".
- Assign the assignment to students as appropriate, including due date and availability windows as applicable.
- Click Save.
To ensure the assignment is formatted correctly, click on the assignment from the NTN gradebook. You will see the form embedded in the rich text editor. Click Publish to make the assignment viewable for students.
Students will now be able to complete the assessment form through Canvas. After students have completed the peer assessment, please see How do I assess students using a Google Form peer assessment? to learn how to process the assessment data.
