What is Revisely?
Revisely is an online tool that helps teachers to give more and better feedback on texts to students 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, she/he can indicate which criteria will be used to correct the text. The teacher then sends the assignment to the students through Revisely.
2. Students hand-in texts
The students receive a notification of the new writing assignment. They will also receive a link to a personal Revisely page via e-mail and submit their text there in the application.
3. Teacher easily gives extensive feedback
The teacher can then access the texts and add her/his formative feedback to them. To do this, they can use the extensive built-in set of comments and observations (both positive and critical). These observations cover all aspects such as language use, grammar, spelling, structure, style and content. Of course, teachers can also add their own comments to the text.
4. Corrected text back to the student
When ready, the teacher returns the text 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. Students can also zoom in on specific aspects such as language use, structure etc.
