Why is Automated Feedback on Writing useful for learning?

The tool allows teachers to save time and energy by reducing the amount of repetitive feedback. Teachers can focus on the content rather than the form when providing feedback. It also helps students to improve their academic writing skills by providing real-time formative feedback.

How does Automated Feedback on Writing work?

The Automated Feedback on Writing tool gives students instant feedback on the quality of academic writing in assignments, thesis, and other deliverables. The feedback consists of straightforward corrections, actionable inline feedback, suggestions, and compliments. The tool checks:

  • Content: Automatic feedback whether written work contains all required sections
  • Figures & Tables: Automatic feedback whether figures have captions and if they are being referred to in the text
  • Academic writing: Automatic feedback whether abbreviations are properly introduced and whether verb tenses are consistent.
  • Citations: Automatic feedback on reference formatting
  • Layout: Automatic feedback on the layout of written work

"With the tools of FeedbackFruits, our students collaborate more and learn from one another in different scenarios as they would in professional life." - Jeroen Brent (Education Manager from University of Applied Sciences Amsterdam)
