Peer review is an evaluation, conducted by a peer or colleague, of all aspects of one’s teaching. It is most typically used in a summative manner for promotion and tenure/long-term contract dossiers and awards.

Feedback on one’s teaching for the purposes of development, tenure, long-term contract and promotion is essential for showing improvement in teaching. Both formative and summative evaluations of teaching are components of the effective teacher’s portfolio and are now expected components of the criteria for excellence in teaching in the revised IU School of Medicine Standards of Excellence for Promotion and Tenure (2007).
