Feedback Loops for Time-Efficient Grading and Better Student Writing
About this talk:
Tired of spending hours giving feedback on written work, only for the exact same errors to pop up in the next batch of assignments? Harness the power of feedback loops to maximize grading efficiency AND generate better student writing. I’ll discuss how to build iterative assignments that help your students master the core skills of your class, how to give feedback so that students actually understand and incorporate it, and how I’ve used Google Docs to streamline the online feedback process.
