Student feedback

Provide feedback

What:

Share OneNote books with students and any work they do automatically appears in your copy - no need to upload files, send emails or hand in homework. Provide feedback by writing in a different colour, recording your voice or adding a video.

Video: Record in OneNote to provide student audio feedback

Why:

  • You could give immediate feedback to students by typing or writing in their notebook (using a different colour), or comment verbally as you annotate by using the audio and video tools in OneNote.
  • Students can also give feedback to each other, working in the same notebooks at the same time through any browser using Office Online.

How:

  • Create and share a OneNote notebook with your students.

What:

Student Feedback Class Survey

Why:

  • Once you have created a survey a link is provided that you can share with students on your class site, via email. The survey is accessible to anyone with the link, so students could create surveys for family and community members to complete.
  • All responses are saved into Excel Online and you can analyse the data, provide it to your staff and school leaders in a format they can use and produce beautiful charts and graphs to illustrate and summarise the data.

How:

  • Learn about using Excel online.
