dc.description.abstract Team peer review is a superset of individual review. We can consider individual peer review as team peer review with only one student in each team. Although much work has been done on peer review in an academic setting, little work has been done on the strategies for mapping reviewers, especially in team peer review. In the usual classroom setting, reviewers are mapped statically and randomly, e.g., instructors collect submissions, shuffle them, and pass them back in the same class or next class. The situation is more complicated when peer review is electronic and asynchronous. If the mapping strategy is static, there is no guarantee that each reviewer assignment is valid. A student might drop the course during the assignment period, and thus be unable to complete the reviews (s)he is assigned. Or (s)he might not submit, leaving his reviewers with nothing to review. Therefore, in this case some students would review more, and some would review less than others. In this work, two dynamic strategies are developed for team peer review that adapt to situations like students dropping the course or not doing their assigned reviews. The first strategy ensures each team has the same number of reviewers as nearly as possible when all students are asked to do the same number of reviews. The second strategy assigns each student to review the same number of teams as nearly as possible when each team is required to be reviewed the same number of times. en_US
