Hello, I’m still playing around with PeerWise prior to setting it up, seems like a great resource.
I had a question though – if a student reports a question for being inappropriate, is there a way for the administrator to be automatically notified? For an email to be sent, or a notification to go up? At the moment I can only see if a question has been reported by specifically searching for it.
Thanks for the question – currently there is no automatic notification for “flagged” questions, so it does rely on you checking this in the “Administration” section. Having said that, there are usually very few actually inappropriate questions (assuming you set the expectations for your students appropriately to begin with). In my most recent experience, in a class of 800 students, there were only a few questions flagged in this way and upon review they were all low quality questions – and received low ratings – rather than what might be considered “inappropriate”.
