You should have received two seminar papers of other students.

Please peer review them and then send the peer reviews back to me.

With the peer review should come a concise summary (2-3 sentences) to show that you understood the work. Sum up all mistakes and errors the author made and provide improvements if possible.
Also provide some mark for the work (-2 strong reject, -1 weak reject, 0 borderline paper, +1 weak accept , +2 strong accept).

As most people have not ever done a review I will quot here from Alan Meier as he summed it up real nice what goes into a review:
(1) Title and author of paper

(2) Summary of paper

This needs to be only 1-3 sentences, but it demonstrates that you understand the paper and, moreover, can summarize it more concisely than the author in his abstract.

(3) Good things about the paper (one paragraph)

This is not always necessary, especially when the review is generally favorable. However, it is strongly recommended if the review is critical. Such introductions are good psychology if you want the author to drastically revise the paper.

(4) Major comments

Discuss the author's assumptions, technical approach, analysis, results, conclusions, reference, etc. Be constructive, if possible, by suggesting improvements.

(5) Minor comments

This section contains comments on style, figures, grammar, etc. If any of these are especially poor and detract from the overall presentation, then they might escalate to the 'major comments' section. It is acceptable to write these comments in list (or bullet) form.

(6) Recommendations

Some referees will shower papers with invective even when they like it. An editor may not recognize this habit, and interpret the criticism as grounds not to publish the paper. For these reasons, it is worthwhile to tell the editor if the paper should be published. Three major categories of recommendations are: "publish as is", "publish after corrections have been made", and "reject". Sometimes the recommendations fit better in the cover letter.

Do not write your name on the comments pages because the editor may forget to conceal your name.

I am sorry for my stupid question, but to make sure that everything correct. Which paper we should write the review? the original paper or the report paper written by student?
Since I talk with one of the students, and he said that we need to write report base on the original report.

thank you.
