Feedback Studio is designed to save teachers hours of work by making the feedback process faster, easier, and more consistent. With tools that support timely feedback and prevent plagiarism, Feedback Studio’s interactive platform delivers provable educational outcomes. It is the only comprehensive solution that simultaneously provides effective feedback, streamlined grading, and promotes academic integrity.
Feedback Studio caters to the fast-paced teacher lifestyle. With its flexible commenting and grading tools, it is able to reduce marking time by 38%. It allows teachers to leave both long and short-form text comments, as well as voice comments for a more personalised touch. With reusable QuickMarks and custom rubrics, the same grading and criteria can be applied across assignments and shared between teachers. This helps teachers to consistently evaluate and set their students up for success in school and beyond.
Feedback Studio is not your average plagiarism checker. It checks student work against the world’s most comprehensive collection of content to identify potential cases of plagiarism. Turnitin’s database covers 70 billion current and archived web pages, over 1 billion student submissions, and 69 million scholarly journals. Feedback Studio’s Similarity Report provides teachers with reliable text matches to check for plagiarism. In 2012, Edexcel used Turnitin to find 122 cases of plagiarism, including 26 at GCSE level. It is vital that secondary schools teach their students the value of academic integrity to reduce potential institutional risk.
Feedback Studio is an incentive to support students with their academic writing, including citation and paraphrasing. With Feedback Studio’s automated grammar checking, draft, revision, and peer review capability, teachers have the tools to show their students that writing is a process. “The more students write, the more confident they will feel in their abilities,” observes a Feedback Studio user, “and the more feedback they receive, the more they will improve.” By using Feedback Studio as part of a formative approach to giving feedback to their students, teachers can effectively guide and support student learning and achievement.
You don’t have to choose between your learning management system and Feedback Studio. You can have both. Feedback Studio partners with rich learning applications to provide schools with an all-in-one experience inside their LTI-compliant learning system. With Feedback Studio, you can expect a quick and hassle-free setup, allowing teachers to jump straight in without the need for technical expertise. Feedback Studio also offers deeper integrations with Blackboard, Canvas, Moodle, and dozens of other learning management systems.
Feedback Studio helps schools to measure student success at scale. Teachers can track and analyse student progress to inform classroom instruction and even support strategic initiatives throughout a school. Feedback Studio offers account administrators with the tools to view feedback, submission and similarity statistics across a school or subject department in order to effectively determine which classes require extra support.
