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 was able to chart engagement and direct my attention to students who weren’t engaged to help them through whatever roadblock was in their way.

Lisa Schanhals (@lschanhals), Spring Lake High School

Eli provided a space so that I could be there to guide my online students through the process instead of “sending them away to write.”

Regina Chanel Rodriguez, West Texas A&M University

Being able to do more than just write comments in the margins and do different things with feedback, these basic writers are writing more and, I think, they’re thinking about writing in some different ways.

Lynn Reid, Fairleigh Dickinson University

We used peer review as a way to facilitate class discussion. We got to see where everyone else was, those who were doing better and worse.
