Your students can contribute to the lessons with feedbackr: For example, let them choose from a selection of topics to be covered. Students can also use feedbackr to choose which exercise to do as homework. Any decision-making in the classroom that has an impact on your students can be ideally mapped.
Use single or multiple choice questions if you want your students to choose from a set of topics. If you want to get ideas from your students, you can also use free text questions.
- Students can actively participate in the configuration of the lesson.
- Teachers get a sense of which topics are interesting for the students and can adjust the lessons accordingly.
- Decision making within the group can be dealt with quickly.
Recommended settings in feedbackr
Multiple Choice question
Show results immediately: disable, if the results should remain “secret” until the resolution. Activate this setting if you feel that there is a “competition” among students with the aim that their favorite subject wins.
multiple choice: Depending on the type of question, a multiple choice may make sense.
Free text question
- never: The students never see the topics that have been entered. Regarding transparency, this adjustment is rather not recommended.
- once stopped: the students see all the suggested topics of the others as soon as the voting is stopped.
- immediately: the suggested topics become directly visible to all students. This is especially useful in combination with the setting “Answer Ranking”.
Multiple answers: enable this setting if you want your students to submit more than one suggested topic.
Answer Ranking: only effective in combination with “Show answers: immediately”. Thereby Students control the prioritization of answers / topics.
