Are you here because you need more peer reviews for your assignment? Please don't panic! Before posting here about needing peer reviews, please check out the following resources as they could give you an answer:

Can reviewers grade my assignment again? (Community thread)

Can I get my certificate if my peer-graded assignment hasn't been graded yet? (Community question + answer)

If your course has a discussion forum, it is best to ask for peer reviews there first. Here in the community we have people in hundreds, if not thousands, of different courses. So it's unlikely that someone in your course will see your request and be able to review your assignment.

Here's how to find your course discussion forum:



If your course is one of the few that doesn't have a discussion forum, or if the above posts do not answer your question, then you can visit the Help Center to contact a support agent. Go to this article, click "Contact Us" at the end of the article, answer a few questions, and then you will have the option to contact a Coursera support agent: Report a problem with a course. Make sure you are logged in to your Coursera account when visiting the Help Center.

@Laura

Do you have any idea why so many people are asking for reviews here? Does the HC tell them to? Does nobody tell them this is not a course specific place? Should there be some announcement, explanation about this community?

Hi @Lochcarron. It may not be clear that this space isn't the course discussion forum that people are looking for. I imagine this is especially true for people new to Coursera. This community can be accessed by clicking on the Community > Learners link in the Coursera page footer.

Because new people are joining Coursera and this community every day, the most we can do is publish posts explaining how things work (like this one) and hope people read them. Now, when starting to type a subject for a new topic, you will see a list of existing topics using those words – hopefully this will encourage people to click on existing posts/articles/tutorials first.
So, it is still relevant to have an introductory video in the courses, I reckon @Laura . People don’t know about following and subscribing to posts/threads/forums. And, obviously, about the Help Center. These are not things that change a lot, so it would be entirely feasible to have such a thing. I saw it in one course as an introductory video, in another as part of the reading materials, both times labeled as ‘How to pass this course’ . That definitely made people read/watch it
There again, @Laura , if course forums are going to disappear and this will be the only place to communicate, all changes, of course

@Lochcarron Our team is working on an introductory video, I imagine it will be ready soon. Laura and I both reviewed it and gave our feedback. I thought it did a good job of covering the main points whilst also being short enough for people to actually watch.
Sounds good, @Claire

In this course , Perfect tenses and modals, there is no forums to post my assignment like. Can you tell me what to do, please?
