14.7: Assignment- Marketing Plan Peer Review

  • Page ID
    16296
  • Recommended Placement: Due after students have submitted their marketing plans for initial review. The Peer Review step would provide feedback for students to incorporate into their final Marketing Plan submissions.

    For this assignment, students use the same rubric as the instructor (see below) and grade their peers’ work. The peer review grade counts for 25% of a student’s total grade for the Marketing Plan. Each student also receives points for completing the peer review, equivalent to 10% of the total class grade.

    Student Instructions: Review a marketing plan prepared by one of your classmates for this course, as assigned by your instructor. Use the rubric below to evaluate your classmate’s work. Provide summary comments about each section of the plan, as well as suggestions for improvement in any areas that warrant further attention and work. You should comment on what your peer has done well, along with things to improve.

    Remember, as a reviewer your job isn’t just to find nice things to say. Your job is to evaluate the overall quality of the work and identify problems that need to be corrected, so that your peer can improve his or her work and receive full credit for the marketing plan assignment. You will receive credit for the peer review based on the professionalism, thoroughness and accuracy of how you evaluate and provide feedback on your peer’s marketing plan.
