Eduflow

Online peer feedback activities

Eduflow is an online tool that makes it easier for you as a teacher to facilitate peer feedback activities with students. The tool automates most of the process, so that students are grouped easily and can provide feedback on each other's work.

Access:

  • Eduflow is directly linked to your Brigthspace course. Therefore, you need to add it to your course page under "More Tools" and then select Eduflow.

 

Use the tool for:

  • Online peer feedback tool
  • Access Eduflow via Brightspace. Students enrolled on the course will automatically be added.
  • Automated communication processes between feedback participants
  • Select deadlines and number of peers per student
  • Submissions and feedback can take place individually or in groups.

Functions in the tool

Rubric

A rubric is a form to guide student feedback. This helps the teacher ensure that the feedback is both erudite and qualified. The scope of this rubric is up to the teacher. Click here to read more about rubrics (link to guide). Students will use the individual rubrics to provide feedback on other students’ work.

Group submissions

You can give students permission to submit in groups and choose whether they should give feedback as a group, i.e. where one group gives feedback to another group. You can also choose to have students submit as a group, but provide feedback individually.

Changes for individual students

For example, you can at any time change the deadline set for an individual student.

Types of submissions

Students can submit many different types of content such as files, links and even video recordings.

Categories

You can create categories that students either choose themselves or that you assign them to. This facilitates differentiated teaching, as categories can be defined based on degree of difficulty, topic, competences or study level. By using categories, you can easily ensure that a group of students give feedback on submissions within the same category.

How does Eduflow work?

Simply explained, this is how Eduflow works:

  • The teacher sets an assignment. The teacher can set a deadline, choose how many students each student will provide feedback for, and whether it will be group or individual submissions.

  • The students complete the assignment and upload their work to Eduflow. Eduflow then randomly groups students together so they can provide feedback on each other’s work.
  • Teachers always have the option of providing feedback as well. This is particularly important if some students do not provide feedback as they should. It is therefore also a good idea to require that each student provides feedback to at least two other students. This increases the likelihood that everyone will receive feedback from at least one other student.
  • The students will respond and comment on the feedback they received in Eduflow.
  • The teacher has a full overview of the feedback tasks in Eduflow.

Overblik

Eduflow helps you facilitate peer feedback sessions where students provide feedback on each other's work. The intention of this type of feedback is to improve student performance and students’ ability to evaluate their own work and that of others. This helps students understand what is considered high-quality work while simultaneously giving them the opportunity to argue their viewpoints. Furthermore, peer feedback increases the amount of feedback the students receive on their written work over the course of a semester.
