Short Answer

Project by 
Adam Sparks and Ben Thier
Project Year 

It takes countless hours at home for teachers to provide meaningful feedback on student work. By the time they return it, students no longer care. Teachers are demoralized and students miss out on learning. To solve this problem, Short Answer enables personalized, immediate peer-to-peer feedback. Students construct written responses and provide feedback on peer answers, taking on a more active role in the classroom. Middle and high school teachers gain the insight needed to make more effective curriculum adjustments and facilitate enriching, lively discussion. Teachers’ effort no longer goes to waste, and students learn more.
