Personal formative feedback

One of Skilling's best things.

  • Personal formative feedback in a minute or two per exercise.
  • "Clickable rubrics" standardize feedback. Graders can be hourly workers, for introductory courses.
  • Implement feedback research recommendations at scale.

Students need to do lots of hands-on work to learn skills.

Learning research recommends many low-stakes hands-on exercises, with individual formative feedback.

Doing what the research recommends is quite difficult. It requires manual grading of up to 2,000 submissions per semester, for a 40-50 student section.

Skilling's feedback system makes it feasible to implement these research guidelines.

The feedback system has a special interface for assessing student work. The interface makes rubric item responses clickable.

The bottom line: good feedback helps students become better problem solvers.
