Peer Edit 5.0 is finally here. Our binary is awaiting Apple review and will be available as soon as their review is complete. Purchase 4.2.1 now and get version 5.0 automatically when it is cleared for sale.

Peer Edit uses a library of pre-written comments to assemble a comprehensive feedback document. A student writer can then use that feedback document to improve his or her essay and writing skills. Peer Edit greatly enhances the efficiency and effectiveness of peer editing by eliminating the need for student editors to recall the specific rules of writing and use their own language when providing feedback.

The effectiveness of essay peer editing often suffers because student writers lack the proper language, skills, and training to accurately critique their classmates' papers. With Peer Edit, students simply click on check boxes for the errors they encounter in an essay and an accurately written feedback document is generated and e-mailed to the student writer.

As schools and universities around the world continue to bolster their pedagogical effectiveness by adopting iPads for in-class use, Peer Edit stands as an excellent example of how technology can be used to improve learning and enable student success. Give your students the tools and language they need to provide exceptional feedback during essay peer review exercises. Reclaim classroom hours by reducing the amount of time spent in one-on-one writing instruction. Watch your student's writing scores improve with Peer Edit for iPad and iPhone.

Peer Edit was developed by a college English professor with extensive secondary experience and is appropriate for middle school through graduate-level university academics.

Absolute Rip Off! Do Not Buy!

Urban Casey

This is a very watered down version of Essay Grader. It does not even include the entire bank of comments. The developers do not have the professionalism to respond to support enquiries. Apple needs to do a better job of screening. Save your money and treat yourself to a Starbucks.

Wow! Why didn't I think of this?


Really! Where has this idea been? Okay, so I guess you couldn't do this without smart devices, but still. Here's how I use it: I proposed this app to my department for our newly acquired iPad cart. We purchased the app for the cart. Now, when any of us do peer editing sessions, the students use the iPads to critique their classmates papers. They don't even have to know exactly what to say. They just have to be able to identify an error and check a box. But here's the real value, I think, while the students are editing, they read through the error comments and that helps immensely with their own writing. This app is amazing from every aspect. Some of my students even purchased it on their phones and used it there. For the first time in my fifteen year career, I really feel like my students' writing has improved from peer editing. Unless you want to sit down with every one of them, get Peer Edit.

Just what I have been waiting for....I think


I have been waiting for a great app that would help me grade essays in a timely way, one in which I could give my students feedback without rewriting it for them. This might be the one. I have used Essay Grader Lite (same company I think) but have not found it as user friendly. I know this one is supposed to be for peer review but as a teacher I think I can use it for my middle schoolers. After I work with it for awhile, I hope I can come back and give it five stars.
