Intelligent tutoring systems cover a wide range of educational processes. However, in the context of peer review methodology, there is no previous work about adaptation of the process according to the student’s profile. In this paper, a methodology for adaptive peer review is introduced. Experimental application of adaptive peer review through two courses allows to confirm pedagogical benefits with actual students’ results.
