Benefits for Researchers: While Eli was built with the goal of improving students, the rich data it yields about review and revision provide compelling opportunities for researchers interested in writing, learning, and teaching, as well as individuals looking to better understand their own teaching.
- Qualitative data: when reviews have comments enabled, they end up producing a large volume of student comments that are ripe for analysis.
- Quantitative data: data about student engagement provides substantial insight into how students are interacting with their review groups and utilizing the feedback they receive.
- Data at the review or course level: Eli produces rich, interactive reports describing the results of a single review or the aggregate data of student engagement across an entire course.
- Downloads: Eli makes both the qualitative and quantitative data at the review and at the course level available for download so researchers can make custom queries and sorts.
