Since 2014, the last time we updated the MyReviewers corpus database, 50,126 students have used MyReviewers to receive feedback from 1372 instructors and peers. Of those students, 33,533 students opted-in for research purposes. This warehouse of data includes papers, peer reviews, revision plans, surveys, and demographic information about the students as well as instructor comments and grades.
Currently, the MyReviewers team is strategizing about convincing more students to opt-in. The main reason for this goal is to create a larger database of peer reviews. When a student decides to opt-out, not only do researchers lose her peer review but also all the reviews from the peers in her group. Since 2014, MyReviewers collected 286,239 peer reviews but only 90,903 peer reviews were from students who opted-in which means that researchers lost 195,336 reviews.
As the warehouse database increases, the MyReviewers research teams hopes to collect more peer reviews in the future in order to further study the correlations between student progression and peer evaluations.
