Better feedback. Better revision.
Learning requires revision and feedback-rich classrooms. Eli Review empowers teachers to coach students in feedback and revision and promotes critical thinking and better writing.
How Eli Review Works
Five steps to evidence-based teaching and learning
Step 1: Assign and Write Small Bits
Eli Review makes it easy for writers to get feedback early and often on texts as small as a sentence.
Step 2: Guide and Give Feedback
Students learn to give helpful feedback through explicit instruction and practice, learning for themselves while helping others.
Step 3: Debrief and Process Feedback
Instructors see formative data in real-time, helping them make evidence-based interventions concerning how and when to coach.
Step 4: Guide and Plan Revision
Revision plans prompt students to process and prioritize feedback, making their thoughts visible for themselves and instructors.
Step 5: Analyze and Iterate
See evidence of improvement in students’ drafts, in the feedback they give and receive, in revision plans, and in revisions.

Stories from the Community
People moving the needle with peer feedback and Eli Review.
I don’t want students thinking like people who just want to suss out whether they've done what a teacher wants in order to check a requirement and move on to something else.

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.

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.
Rebecca Zantjer (@rebeccazantjer), Michigan 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.

Eli’s analytics gave me a chance to make real time changes to my pedagogy, and the class could see why I was making those changes.
