How I Use It
Student uploaded an essay and their peers gave them actionable feedback based on the rubric. The teacher created rubric is very important. The first assignment I gave was too close-ended (yes/no questions). The 2nd assignment the rubric allowed for more actionable feedback. Also, I needed to allow more time for the deadlines. The tech support was excellent. I needed some assistance during class and I got a response within minutes. Even one of my students got immediate feedback - when an essay she was supposed to edit was too short, they gave her an additional essay to edit.
My Take
Five stars!!
