Encouraging Student Reflection on Feedback

1 0 221

Many of us have spent HOURS providing constructive feedback on student assessments.  Personally, I have used both hand written feedback AND online feedback in an effort to have my students use the feedback I meticulously provide to actually improve their work.

I love Speedgrader on Canvas specifically because it does make feedback accessible and impossible for students to lose in their backpacks!

I read an article published on NCTE's blog titled: Commenting on Comments: Getting Students to Read and Understand Feedback by Anne Mooney and created this assignment (with rubric and links to applicable Canvas Guides) to help turn my students back to my feedback.

The assignment (and rubric) is available on the Canvas Commons and you are welcome to adapt it to your needs:

About the Author
After 10 years facing students in a variety of Humanities courses, Alissa is now diving into Canvas Training full time! She earned a BA in History (minor English Language and Literature), BA in Russian Language and Literature from Brigham Young University, and a MAT in Teaching from the University of Southern California. She was the 2016 Teacher of the Year (Cottonwood High School, Salt Lake City, Utah). On her weekends, Alissa's hobbies include reading and playing the harp (Principal Harpist, Johnson City Symphony Orchestra). Alissa's other half is an aspiring attorney about to begin his 3rd (and final!) year at Lincoln Memorial University's Duncan School of Law. They both enjoy a good Saturday of College Football and maybe someday they'll have a garden!
