Peer Reviews

Peer reviews will be conducted anonymously every 3 weeks throughout MSD I&II. Constructive criticism will be presented in the form of pluses and deltas for each team member based on the criteria stated in our team values and norms document. Our project guide, Dr. Kaemmerlen, will review all suggestions and forward them to their appropriate team member. A sample peer review can be found here.


Communication between team members will be carried out via email for substantial new information that needs to be well documented. Text messages can be sent for regular updates among the team. Emails to team members should be CC'd to all member for the purpose of transparency and keeping everyone updated.

The best way to reach Dr.Bailey is via email. Jade will be the customer liaison and is tasked with keeping Dr.Bailey updated major project changes and facilitating design review availability. It isn't necessary to CC everyone when checking customer availability, but it is expected to be reported during meetings or via text/email.
