Annotated Bibliography Peer Review Claire
  1. Are my sources reliable?

Anna- Yes, they all had something that added validity to them.
Noelle:Indeedy! They all seem pretty credible.

  1. Did I write enough information concerning, summary, assessment and the review?

Anna- I would maybe add a little more to your summaries but the other sections look good.
Noelle:For summaries maybe add specific details if possible, but otherwise lookin' good!

Are the summaries detailed enough that you understand what the source is all about? Are there details that the writer included that are unnecessary to the summary? What questions are you left with after reading the summaries?

Anna- The summaries are good but could maybe be a little longer. I understand what each article was about but would like a little more information. The details included in the summaries are good and give more insight into what the article is about. I didn't have many questions after reading the summaries.
Noelle:I think your summaries are good and give a good overview of what the articles are about, but like I said earlier, maybe try to add more specific details, if possible.

Did the reviewer evaluate the sources using the CRAAP test? Do you see criteria based judgements about each letter (currency, relevance, authority, accuracy, purpose)? What is missing?

Anna- You used the CRAAP test well.
Noelle:You utilized the CRAAP test nicely. Also, you worded it very nicely so it doesn't seem like you're doing a test.

Are the reflection sections complete enough that you understand how the writer responded to the sources? Could they include more information?

Anna- Your evaluation and reflection sections kind of overlap.. could you make your eval sections more straight to the point and take more of your opinions and add them to your reflection?
Noelle:I believe your reflections are good, but I agree with Anna that you should try to be more straight forward about your opinion, and whether you wish to use the source or not.

Based on these three entries, in what direction do you think the writer's research is going?

Anna- The research is clear and seems like she is in favor of solitary confinement but definitely wants to argue that it needs to be reevaluated and restructured.
Noelle:I believe you are off to a great start and you clearly have a good start!:)

What questions are you left with after reading these entries?

Anna- Even though there are obvious psychological issues with solitary confinement, do you believe that is the reason for this punishment?
Do you have any articles with possible ways to make solitary confinement more humane?
Noelle:None, I believe your intent was clear.

What are these annotations weaknesses?

Anna- The summaries could be more and better answer some questions regarding what you are looking for in your research.
Noelle:Couldn't hurt to reread them for spelling/grammar errors:)

What are these annotations strengths?

Anna- Your sources seem really good and the information you found also seems like it is going to help you state your argument well!
Noelle:You found good sources, evaluated them well with the CRAAP test, and seem to have a good idea in mind for reasearch
