How does Automated Feedback work as a teacher?

Updated over a week ago

This article will guide you through the process of using FeedbackFruits’ Automated Feedback tool as a teacher. It will help you understand what you see after you've set up an assignment. The overview the tool provides can help you to monitor your class during the writing process.

Setting up Automated Feedback provides your students with additional formative feedback prior to handing in their work. Please do not use Automated Feedback to grade your students, but only provide it to them as an extra opportunity to reflect and improve upon their work. We are continuously working on improving our feedback by better training our algorithms, which means that we can’t guarantee flawless feedback.

Overall student progress

Here you can view the statistics per active student. You can check whether the student has read the instructions and handed in an assignment. You can also use the “EXPORT ANALYTICS” button to export this information to an excel sheet.

Please note that the “handed in” box is only checked if a student has uploaded a document to be checked by Automated Feedback. If they decided to remove the document, to process the feedback received, this box is empty.

Step 1: Instructions

At this step, you'll see the instructions you set when you configured the assignment. You can change these by clicking the three dots in the top-right corner of the screen.

Step 2: Hand in

Here you can see which students’ have completed their hand-in. It also provides information on whether it is handed in on time and how many days prior to the deadline. The files handed in shows the documents that the student has submitted.

Plagiarism check (beta feature)

If you have turned on the Plagiarism check functionality while setting up the activity, here you will see the plagiarism results. Please see more about how to interpret the plagiarism check percentages here. Note that students will not see these results from their end.

This functionality is in beta and requires configuration from an LMS admin and FeedbackFruits. If you are interested, please inform your contact person or Pilot and Partner Manager at FeedbackFruits to guide you through the integration. Read more about FeedbackFruits and Turnitin here.

Step 3: Automated Feedback

At this stage, you can see the results of the students that have handed in work to be checked by Automated Feedback. These are the results derived from the criteria you have chosen upfront when setting up the assignment. Please navigate to this article if you need some help setting up Automated Feedback and choosing the right criteria.

Once you have chosen these, you can navigate to Tryout to test your set-up. You can upload an assignment that you would like to be checked, and the results will give you insights into the feedback your students will receive with these criteria.

Once students have uploaded their work, you will see two different overviews. The criteria overview shows how well each requirement was fulfilled among all students that used Automated Feedback within that course.

The students overview provides you with information on how well each student did, and what feedback Automated Feedback provided them. If students have marked any feedback received as incorrect, a suggestion provided by the system will have changed to contested.

You can also enter the document of the student to view the feedback that has been given. This can be done by clicking on either the submission title or on the passing percentage results circle.

Within the document, you can see the feedback the student has received in the same way he or she will see it. If a student has disagreed with the feedback provided, he or she can “mark feedback as incorrect”. In this case, the feedback item will automatically change from suggestion to contested. The comment will be displayed at the respective feedback item for you and the student.

Do you have any feedback?

We welcome any suggestions you may have to help us improve the Automated Feedback tool. Whether it is a suggestion for a new criterion or feedback on the UI and UX, we are here to hear it!
