Benefits for Students: Eli guides students through submitting drafts, giving feedback, getting feedback, and using feedback to revise. It helps students focus on the criteria that matter as they learn alongside their peers.
- Give better feedback: Eli helps teachers design review tasks so that reviewers notice criteria before rushing to evaluate. Commenting guidelines encourage reviewers to elaborate using describe-evaluate-suggest, which can persuade writers to revise.
- Get better feedback: Writers read their feedback and make decisions about how helpful each comment was and whether they want to put the comment in their revision plan.
- Plan better revisions: Writers prioritize their peer feedback and explain their next steps. This step encourages metacognition so that students learn to manage the writing process.
