This peer assessment platform is an application of technology in education that empowers teachers to manage the peer review process and improve teaching methods. Based in Copenhagen, startup Peergrade offers an advanced peer review system that enables increased and ameliorated feedback, learning at a higher level and the saving of time.

Teachers create an assignment as well as the evaluation criteria. Students hand-in their work, and Peergrade automatically redistributes them among the students for peer assessment. Students evaluate each other's reports, giving and receiving feedback. Teachers also get to oversee everything. The platform has several features in place ensuring feedback is fair.

By offering a platform to manage this technique, Peergrade provides data-supported insights to educators regarding student performance.
