Boost your assessment marking

Enhance support for your students by incorporating the standardised feedback comments, developed by the Academic Skills Unit, for use in Canvas SpeedGrader to save time.

The Academic Skills standardised feedback comments comprise 14 categories of the most common errors found in student writing. These include:

  • including logic and argumentation
  • use of evidence
  • organisation of information
  • paragraph writing
  • clarity of expression.

Each category contains specific, easy to understand feedback comments to assist students in developing and improving their micro-skills. The comments provide explanations and links to relevant Academic Skills online resources.

As the marker, you can pick and choose from these standardised feedback comments and customise them for seamless integration with your existing marking comments.

Download the MS Word or Excel files containing the standardised feedback comments for easy copy and pasting into your Canvas SpeedGrader interface.
