Improving Communication through Presentations and Evaluations
Dr. Thompson placed an emphasis on developing her students communication skills, and was able to achieve this using Kritik by assigning presentations and having other student evaluate the presenting skills of their peers.
Customized Rubrics to Develop Strong Evaluators
By using Kritik to provide detailed rubrics, students are able to hone in on their skills as evaluators by having a better understanding of what to look for in the work of their peers.
Online Group Presentations
Kritik's group feature allows students to work collaboratively on different assignments, and was particularly helpful for group presentations. Students were able to improve their communication skills both through the actual presentations but also through comparitive assessment by evaluating their peers.
