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.

Susanmarie Harrington (@granolasusan), University of Vermont

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

Eli helped me guide students into meaningful practice. They took more ownership of the content and their own skill development.

Jo Lien, North Idaho College

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.

Casey McArdle (@crmcardle), Michigan State University

I truly believe that, if Eli is used well, anyone can grow as a writer.
