Kaizena for Students – Reviewing Feedback


Hey there, it’s Ariel from Kaizena! This
video is going to walk you through how to review the feedback that you received
from your teacher. When you open up your Google Doc, you will see it’s been
highlighted, in this case by your teacher. In order to access the feedback, you
first have to activate Kaizena. After opening Kaizena, you will see all
the comments that your teacher left you. Let’s open up each specific type of
comment. The first one is a voice comment. To hear the comment click, the play
button. [Voice comment] “Remember to capitalize each letter in a title.” The next comment is a text comment that your teacher typed. The comment is
written in the white font. The third type of feedback is what we call a lesson. A
lesson is a micro unit which focuses on a specific area of communication. For
example, in this case the subject and verb do not agree. The teacher has
indicated the lesson of subject verb agreement. There is also a video you can
watch to learn about subject verb agreement. The fourth and final way
teachers can give feedback is by connecting skills. Skills are a specific
area that the teacher is rating or evaluating. The teacher is commenting on
the students ability to have a paragraph transition. The teacher highlighted the
specific area and selected the level of proficiency. In addition there’s a
paragraph that describes how the teacher is assessing the paragraph transition. To
see the other levels, click the buttons “Show other levels.” Now you can see what
the other levels are. When your teacher is using several skills he or she may
decide to incorporate all of them into a rubric. You’ll know that the teacher has
done this because the blue “Show rubric” icon will be lit. Click “Show rubric” and
you will see all of the skills that are being assessed, including the summary and
any additional comments that your teacher has left. And there you have it: the four ways that teachers and fellow students can provide feedback. In the
next video, we’re going to look at how you can respond to the feedback.
