Eli helped me guide students into meaningful practice. They took more ownership of the content and their own skill development.

Jo Lien, North Idaho College

I am more in-touch with each individual student over time and can document and demonstrate growth because of Eli.

Michael Schanhals (@NMLit), North Muskegon High School

Eli requires me to be more concrete and descriptive about what I’m asking reviewers to identify and evaluate.

Tim Amidon (@timothyamidon), Colorado State University

I build Eli Review into the logic of the assignment sequences so that giving feedback and using it to revise becomes second nature.

Scott Rogers (@scottlorgers), Pacific Lutheran University

Projecting the live feed of comments allowed me to get out of students’ way while still reminding them that their work is public in our class community.
