I received a grade and feedback on one of the components of a peer-review assignment that I disagree with. How can I express my disagreement? I cannot seem to find a solution anywhere, nor a point where I can contact the person or some of the course coordinators. Editing my submission is not an option, because there is nothing to change. I just believe that I deserve a higher grade and that the person simply did not read my answer. This affects my grade and for this very course my grade is important for this certificate. Thanks a lot for your help!

Peer grading does not rely on a single evaluation. It is based on minimum three evaluations by different peers. There is a method adopted by Courseta in determining the assignment grades in peer grading.
Peer reviewed assignment grades
Peer reviewed assignments are graded with the following formula:
- Your peers give a grade to each part of your assignment.
- The median score for each assignment part becomes the final grade for that part.
- All the final grades for each part are added together to calculate your grade for that assignment.
You'll need to do the required number of peer reviews for other people's assignments before your assignment will be complete.

You can only express your disagreement on the discussion forums. You cannot be sure that the evaluator will see it. The method shown above ensures that extreme kind of evaluations that rate an assignment too high or too low will not be considered for arriving at the grades.
