WK 4 Team Case Study 2 – Peer Review

Respond separately two peer group case study on “Cynthia” GROUP B &C


This discussion board facilitates the opportunity to clarify information and check out each other’s thoughts by engaging with each other about the material. Subsequently, your discussions reinforce what you are learning, invites critical thinking and reflection by learning about different perspectives, approaches, and overall helps you articulate the information in a clear and logical way. As future clinicians, you will often conduct peer review tasks to keep yourself and other practitioners accountable to best practices. These assignments will allow you to practice this skill with your peers’ case studies. Reading the discussion threads throughout the week will allow more time to process the information and formulate responses.

Your Tasks:

There is not a minimum or maximum of words, however, your posts must exhibit a well thought out scholarly posts and responses. You are also to “avoid quoting” material, as that will not help you articulate and synthesize the material. The purpose of your peer review is to not scrutinize your peers’ writing (e.g., spelling errors, etc.), but to comment on what you found informative (be specific) and offer further knowledge you gained (e.g., additional interventions, ways of coding and justifying a diagnosis, etc.). Note: comments like, “I agree with you,” “good presentation … learned a lot,” or “That’s a good idea” does not reflect critical thought and are not scholarly. By providing critical thought you will prevent your grade from being reduced.

Students are required to respond by posting their scholarly responses a minimum of two times during the week. One of your two posts (hopefully you posted more than two 🙂 ) needs to be based on your review of another teams’ or individual’s case study post. The other post can be replying—as long as it meets the standards of the assignment/rubric—to a peer’s response to your own case study.

Whichever you choose the first of the two postings must take place by Wednesday or you will automatically lose 30 points. The points you earn for your postings will be reflective of the sustenance you offer towards the discussion and that you have fulfilled the criterion for each standard requirement. After the scheduled time for closing the discussion board has ended you may continue to discuss the material but there will not be any credit offered for late posts.
