As I was reading over peer review letters, I caught a student who had basically written one letter to his three peer group members. The letters were essentially the same with only a couple tiny differences (the assignment required each student to write an informal letter in response to the other writers’ papers, pointing to specific areas for improvement).
I told James and Evelyn the situation. I start to scribble a quick note at the top of the third peer letter. Evelyn giggles: “You should write the *same* *exact* message to him on all three of the letters. That’s what I would do.”
