This journey allows for incorporating feedback at different layers (self, peer and group) that initiate meaningful interactions, engagement, and critical thinking. Instructors also save plenty of time in activity set-up and feedback distribution.
Receiving continuous feedback and having to decide on which comments to act on allows students to develop critical analysis and problem-solving skills.
Multi-layer feedback throughout the writing process allows students to identify their strength and weaknesses, at the same time learn from their peers.
Instructors provide detailed instructions, guidelines, and materials for the writing assignment. Once students understood the requirements, they proceed to work on the first draft.
Students submit their 1st draft to Automated Feedback tool and receive instant, formative feedback on low-level writing skills (reference style, grammar, spelling, etc.). This helps save instructors giving feedback to large student cohort, while providing students with personalized comments.
At the same time, students upload their deliverables to Peer Review tool, where they give feedback on their peers' work based on teacher defined criteria. This process stimulates meaningful dialogues, critical thinking, and self-regulatory
Students improve and finalize the writing based on the feedback and teacher insights. They then submit the work and receive teacher feedback within Assignment Review tool.
Students reflect on the entire writing process, what feedback was useful to them, and which feedback they decided not to implement and why. This can help with their self-regulatory learning, and reflect on how they took action, what they want to improve and how.
You'll receive the journey we draft together for you and our recommendations on how to implement it.
