Instructors at UC Santa Cruz are using the one-click Student Purchase option to engage students with peer assessment, efficiently offer meaningful assignments, and create a community of learners no matter how large the class.

“I’m using Peerceptiv for the first time this quarter and LOVE it. And — what’s far more important — the students love it and are both more thoughtful about their own writing (because peers will read it), and becoming stronger readers/reviewers of the work of others, able to apply review lessons learned to their own writing.”

– Derede Arthur,
Lecturer Writing Program/Core UC Santa Cruz
