Is there any plan to make a feature that will allow you setup manual allocations before the students submit their initial papers?
We have a class where the students submit by 6pm on Sunday, and then they need to peer review their assigned paper by noon on Monday, just prior to the 12:30pm class meeting time. The students are paired up for their reviews, because during the Monday class they meet and discuss each others feedback.
With the current setup, the prof has to be there and ready at 6pm on Sunday to manually allocate students as quickly as possible, which is a pain. So it would be great if she could manually assign the peer reviewers ahead of time so that they are given their assignments as soon as the submission phase is done.
Or, I could envision being able to use to new settings to achieve the same result: For random allocations a checkbox to 1) pair student allocations, and another to 2) do not allow repeat pairs.
Would anyone else find this useful?
