Assisted Writing Feedback
Teachers are often overwhelmed with the amount of feedback that they need to provide students on their writing. At the same time, students themselves aren't getting the feedback that they need. At the Learning Agency Lab, we've been increasingly interested in natural language processing and other computer-mediated tools to help give students more feedback. Please reach out if you have thoughts on how assisted writing feedback tools can help improve learning.
WHAT TEACHERS KNOW ABOUT THE SCIENCE OF LEARNING?
Our sister company, The Learning Agency has recently released survey report on the beliefs of educators about some popular learning myths and learning styles. Interesting findings were garnered from the survey results participated by hundreds of K-12 educators.
Assisted feedback writing software
Although assisted feedback writing software is gaining more and more attention from educators around the globe, some are still relatively new to its concept and to what extent it can help educators and students.
As an effort to provide helpful insights about assisted feedback writing software, we pulled together a report listing the must-know facts about the tool.
The basic logic of gifted programs is at odds with many research findings. Gifted programs and other forms of “tracking”— where students are grouped by their achievement level or perceived ability — are supposed to improve academic outcomes. But there’s little evidence that they do.
