THE POWER OF FEEDBACK

Writing is becoming more and more important and increasingly touches all aspects of learning. To ensure better writing, instructors use educational technology to leave immediate, formative and personalized feedback in less time. Instructors can easily evaluate if students understand how to respect copyright and, above all, how to declare when they are expressing their own ideas and when they are using other people's ideas.

Technology also eliminates the time-consuming process of verifying student authorship by presenting easy-to-use reports that show how much of a document is original, cited from other sources, or unoriginal. This way educators can promote academic integrity in their classroom. Students learn the importance of original writing and attribution and foster critical thinking skills that are important to student success.

This digital provision of feedback reduces time spent grading and allows instructors to leave deeper and more varied feedback, which increases student engagement. Studies show that the more students use feedback to revise, and the more they actually revise their work, the more their writing skills will improve.
