There are several ways to give feedback to your students in Educake: on individual questions, on tests, and on student reports.
Giving feedback on individual questions
When you view the test results, you can click on any tick or cross or question mark in the results grid. A window will display the question, the student’s answer to it, and any comments made by the student. At the bottom of the window you can comment on the answer, and change the mark. The student will then see your comment the next time they view their test results. Here’s what you see when you click on a purple tick mark on the results grid:
Giving feedback on tests
Each time a student finishes a test, they’re asked three self-evaluation questions: what went well, what didn’t go well, and what’re going to do to improve. You’ll see their responses to these on the results grid of the test, under the SE (self-evaluation) column.
You can leave a comment on their self-evaluation of the test. Do this by clicking on the question mark (if they’ve completed the evaluation) or the pencil (if they haven’t) here:
You’ll be able to see the student’s answers to the self-evaluation at the end of the test, and leave a comment for them. They’ll see this the next time they go back to look at the test results.
Even if the student hasn't answered their self-evaluation questions, you can comment on their test by clicking on the white pen on grey background.
Giving feedback on student reports
Educake automatically creates individual student reports for each student, as seen below. When you generate an individual student report, you can add your comments to it. Scroll to the bottom of the report and click on "Add a Comment".
