Reviewers feedback
Reviewers’ feedback Curriculum Technologies

  • Much sleeker and easier to use.

  • Helps me to focus on students work as I’m only looking at one document.

  • I can view what I have written a lot easier to check between markings, so I can go back and review.

  • I can concentrate more on what the student is saying and I can give better responses or add info from internet.

  • Easier to spend time on the reading and assessing of the statements.

  • The fact that students can see their statement and my comments on same page must help them to link the two and for it to be more meaningful. It is for me anyway.
