In learning how to give effective, useful feedback, students do substantive, fundamental learning about writing that will make them better writers.

Jessie L. Moore (@@jessielmoore), Elon University

Eli provides analytic data that I can use to track progress with writing for each student. I can follow and track students as a reviewer and writer, and it’s all in the same place.

Dawn Reed (@dawnreed), Okemos High School

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

Two weeks into my course I had to completely revamp my weekly plan once I realized what Eli Review was capable of. Be willing to let go and dive in.

John Holland (@hollandsf), San Francisco State 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.
