Another reflection on last semester’s comparative politics course . . .
I noticed a loose association between final course grades and students’ Perusall activity, so the cost-benefit of engaging or not engaging with Perusall assignments ought to be transparent to students.* Another plus: because Perusall scores student activity automatically with an AI algorithm, the assignments are basically “set and forget” on my end. This aspect was very convenient when I didn’t have the time or inclination to read all of the students’ annotations on certain assignments.
I’m so pleased with how Perusall functions that I’m going to incorporate it into my fall semester undergraduate courses.

*With only twelve students in the course by the end of the semester, I’m not going to bother to try to calculate correlation coefficients.
