Faster Rating System of Teaching Resources

One of our goals is to provide you with an opportunity to grade teaching resources found on Nephrology On-Demand. These grades help future users discern quality teaching resources and help users manage their time more effectively.

Along with our 6-point review system known as Transparent Peer Review, we have included a quick 5-star review system at the top of every teaching resource. All users can grade teaching resources using this quick tool and, if needed, can provide a more extensive evaluation of a resource using Transparent Peer Review.

Nephrology On-Demand encourages you to grade our teaching resources to help us make a more educational website for you in the months to come!
