What is Revisely?
Revisely is an online tool that helps teachers and lecturers of schools and universities to give more and better feedback on students’ documents in less time.
How does Revisely work?
1. Create an assignment
The teacher sets an assignment or ‘writing prompt’ for a class or other group of students. Apart from the assignment description, they can indicate which criteria will be used to correct and grade the handed-in documents. The teacher then sends the assignment to the students through Revisely.
2. Students hand in documents
Students receive a notification of the new writing assignment. They will also receive a link to a personal Revisely page and submit their document (Word, PDF, etc.) there in the application.
3. Teacher easily provides extensive feedback
The teacher can then access the students’ documents, annotate them and add their formative feedback. To do this, they can use the extensive built-in set of comments and observations (both positive and critical). These observations cover aspects such as language use, grammar, spelling, structure, style and content. Of course, teachers can also add their own comments to the document.
4. Corrected document is returned to the student
When ready, the teacher returns the document with the feedback to their students, who again receive a notification by mail. Students can then view their work, a summary report of improvement points, the teacher’s observations and the feedback. With each observation, Revisely shows what the issue is and how it should be improved next time (feed forward). Students can also zoom in on specific aspects such as language use, structure etc.
