A "Peer-Reviewed" article is an article that has been reviewed by experts within a particular field. Peer-reviewed journal articles are written by experts for experts. Their expertise and evaluation of the articles determines whether or not they are acceptable for publication. This rigorous editorial process is the reason why your professors place such emphasis on having you use these materials for your research and class readings.
