I always want to provide students with more feedback than I ever have time for, so I taught that some of the feedback could be automated.
I was not the first person to have this brilliant idea. There is a long history of automated feedback systems (and Intelligent Tutoring Systems) with various levels of success. There are free ones (such as AutoGradr - Automatically grade programming assignments, Web-CAT, Marmoset, APOGEE, Infandango, and Submit!) as well as commercial systems (such as Vocareum, Zybooks, Turings Craft, and Pearson Revel). All of these systems have their advantages and disadvantages.
Well, this did not stop me from building my own version, called JollyFeedback or Jolly for short.
If you would like to try out Jolly, the link to download is below. It is based on python3, so it should (in theory) run on any system. The main features of Jolly are:
I have only tested it on the UW system, so I am not sure at this point how "customized" the Canvas installation is and whether the things that work on UW system will or will not work on other systems.
If you are interested in testing out v0.0.1-alpha-minus, have a look at the README at jollyPublic/README.md at master · pisanuw/jollyPublic · GitHub and download the system from Releases · pisanuw/jollyPublic · GitHub
I look forward to your feedback and who knows might even be able to put in "high priority" features if you were interested in using it.
Hello, firstname.lastname@example.org Welcome to the Canvas Community, and thanks for sharing this! Since you're new to these parts, you probably don't know that it's not necessary to post the same content to multiple groups; instead, you can create the content in just one group, and then share it out to any other group of which you're already a member. That will prevent multiple parallel threads from developing.
So I've shared this post to the Higher Education group to keep the conversation unified here.
