If you ask another student to review your paper, please remind him or her that the review should be focused on three issues:

1. Check for grammar (including incomplete sentences and awkward transisitions).

2. Check for misspellings.

3. Check to see that the assignment meets the grade requirements (e.g., if the assignment includes 5 points for discriminant validty, discriminant validty should be discussed in the paper).

In order to earn credit for peer review, you must submit a marked up copy (with the peer reviewer's signature) and a clean copy that incorporates the edits. There is no requirement that the peer review must be a psychology major or in the same class.
