Corrective Feedback : Correct more, better and faster | ESL | Scoop.it

Correct more ESL assignments, faster and easier than ever before with CorrectiveFeedback.com. Providing feedback on student work is one of the most time consuming part of a teacher's day. With CorrectiveFeedback.com, teachers can use a variety of tools to automatically check for errors, check academic word choice, search for target structures, as well as dramatize the presence of the reader with voice-of-the-reader comments and audio writing conferencing tools. 

Nicholas Walker's insight:

This brand new power tool for teachers is in beta testing while new features are being added. I am certainly going to be using it this semester with my students. If it lives up to its promise, CorrectiveFeedback.com might just be able to rescue my weekends from the usual avalanche of corrections I have to do.
