Feedback and rubrics
Providing students with effective, frequent, and timely feedback is shown to improve student learning gains. Using rubrics on D2L will provide students with clear expectations of the criteria necessary on an assessment and also simplify the process of providing feedback to numerous students. By creating a detailed rubric, students can easily see where they missed points on an assignments, and the rubric tallies the score and inputs it into the D2L gradebook for the assignment.
It should also be noted that feedback does not need to only come from the instructor. Peer-review or self-review can be used successfully to provide feedback. Practice opportunities for self-check can provide formative information to the students about their progress throughout the semester.
Note: the use of originality checkers like TurnItIn must be detailed in the syllabus prior to use
