If you want to give a new assignment to your students, select on the Dashboard page the big green button with ‘New assignment‘.

Then you see the screen below with the assignment library. Here you can choose an assignment template. This can save even more time since you can easily choose a template when you want the students to do an assignment similar to an existing template. This could be an assignment template to write an essay or about a chapter of the book you discussed. You can create these templates yourself and save them within Revisely so that you can always easily find the assignment and send it to a new group of students.

Choose ‘New Empty Assignment‘ if you want to start with a blank form. You will see the screen below. Here you can display all the details and instructions for an assignment that a student needs to make. You can type information about how to do the assignment successfully and to submit it on time. All fields with a * must be completed.

Choose atitlethat says something about the assignment so that you can later find the correct assignment based on the title.

Then you make a choice in the field ‘Assignment type‘. You can choose here from the standard possibility of sending out an assignment to students, a peer grading assignment, handing in teams or an assignment consisting of both peer grading and submitting to teams, after which you will be checked.

The Peer grading option ensures that the students can provide each other’s submitted texts with feedback. As a teacher you keep an overview and you may or may not include the feedback from peers in the final assessment of an assignment. The system automatically creates non-random student combinations that provide feedback to the work of another student.

The option of Team hand-in Here the students are randomly placed by the system in a team of 2 or more team members. This allows teams to jointly submit one assignment that is also checked, assessed and provided with feedback as a whole.

The status of the assignment can be draft/published/closed/hidden. You can always change this later. For example, it is possible to prepare various assignments before you publish them.

The start and end date and timespeak for themselves.

The ‘language of the text’ determines which database of observations will be used to check and give feedback on the text. At the moment, databases with observations specifically for the Dutch, English or Spanish language are available. With English you can choose to give feedback on the level of advanced English, basic English or in Dutch. This way you can do justice to the differences between students of different levels and different school years.

Under the option ‘Way to hand in texts’ you can choose whether your students type their texts in Revisely (or copy and paste them from word/pages file), or that they upload a document in Revisely. These can be different file formats but we recommend that your students upload it as a PDF file to ensure that the file will look the same after uploading.

The option ‘Accept hand-ins after the deadline‘ speaks for itself.

At general settings, you can indicate whether your students receive an extra notification by email when the assignment is published and whether they receive automatic reminders.

Plagiarism check indicates whether the plagiarism check is switched on for this assignment. This is an additional (paid) option in Revisely. Within Revisely, there is seamless integration with the plagiarism check of Urkund, whereby submitted texts are compared with a database of websites, texts and other sources that may have been used in the assignment. When there is a part of the text that has been copied from somewhere, you can see exactly which part of which original source is used. That way you can decide for yourself what you want to do with this.

Automatic Checker ensures that a small number of errors are already automatically detected and marked as such when checked. At the moment this function does not work because we are still working on improving it.

Select the classes for which this assignment should apply.

You can indicate thelength of the assignment at your own discretion. This is for example “2 pages”, “120-16 words” or “no more than one A4”.

The summary is a mandatory field within the content of a new assignment. You can enter the complete description as you wish. Both fields are visible for a student when making the assignment.

The options ‘Teacher can hand in texts on behalf of students’and ‘Assignment will begraded‘ speak for themselves.

The option ‘Show evaluation criteria‘ determines whether students can see which criteria will be used to assess the assignment. These criteria or categories are explained below.

Under the heading ‘scores/grades/criteria‘ you will find the different criteria on which you are going to judge an assignment. Revisely has 7 standard criteria and you can add up to 5 own assessment criteria yourself. The standard criteria correspond to the categories in which the observations are classified in the database. More information about the database of observations can be found under the ‘observation database’. The weighting of the chosen criteria can, of course, be adapted as a teacher. Make sure the total adds up to 100%.

Finally you can add relevant documents and websites. This can be an article based on which students have to write an assignment on or a video or audio fragment in which arguments can be found. Any form of digital documentation is possible here.

As soon as you click on ‘save‘ and you have selected the option at the top that students will automatically receive a message as soon as the assignment has been published, the students will immediately receive a message about the new assignment.

The students have now received a message that a new assignment is ready for them. This message will be sent by e-mail. In this e-mail message they find a link and by clicking on the link they are immediately directed to the assignment.

After publication, it is still possible to make changes to the assignment to a limited extent. It is also possible to make a copy of an assignment and give it to another class.
