Course Description

Providing students with multiple methods of receiving feedback prior to a mark being assigned to an assessment can help increase the quality of student assignments and learning. Within Canvas students and instructors can benefit from the use of rubrics, peer reviews, and in-line grading (providing feedback with a paper submitted by students). In this session, participants will learn how to set up and use rubrics, peer reviews, in-line grading, and assessment aligned with outcomes to improve the quality of work students submit.
