peer review

The peer review and grading methodology must seem good as a theory but in practice, it has been an absolute fail.

My peer reviewers seem to be unable to comprehend the basic fundamentals of the English language.

It is a little annoying that all assignments are peer reviewed and feedback is not always available before your next deadline even when you submitted in time.

It was an excellent option to practice basics aspects of writing as well as to discover new ones to improve at it The contents of the course are not bad, but the peer review system is an absolute failure.
