Math Feedback That Students Can Easily Use With The docAppender Add-on

Below is an abridged version of my three year journey to improve the process of giving my students useful feedback in math.



**Jump to "one month ago" to see my latest discovery!


3 years ago:
  • My students wrote math quizzes.
  • I wrote the feedback directly on the quiz and returned it to them.
  • My students had the comments somewhere in their binders or in a file folder.
  • They rarely referred back to them.
  • I did not have a record of the comments.

2 years ago:
  • My students wrote math quizzes.
  • I typed their feedback up in a Word doc, printed it out, cut up the comments and stapled them to the front of their quizzes.
  • My students had the comments somewhere in their binders or in a file folder.
  • They rarely referred back to them.
  • I did have a record on my computer.
  • I had to sift through multiple documents filled with comments to generate report card comments.

1 year ago:
  • My students wrote math quizzes.
  • I recorded their feedback in a Google Form.
  • I also typed their feedback up in a Google Doc, printed it out, cut up the comments and stapled them to the front of their quizzes.
  • They had the comments somewhere in their binders or in a file folder.
  • They rarely referred back to them.
  • I had a fantastic record of the feedback in a spreadsheet that could be easily sorted to see a clear picture of the student as all the feedback was streamlined into one place.

1 month ago:
  • Using the Doctopus Add-on, I push a blank document titled “Ongoing Math Feedback” to each student. The Doc sits in their math folder in their Drive.
  • My students wrote a math quiz.
  • I record their feedback in a Google Form.
  • I use the docAppender Add-on to automatically send the feedback directly to their “Ongoing Math Feedback” Doc.
  • My students have a record of the feedback in a readily accessible location.
  • They can and do refer to it!
  • I have a fantastic record of the feedback in a spreadsheet that can be easily sorted to see a clear picture of the student as all the feedback is streamlined into one place.
  • I also have access to their individual document containing all of their feedback. I can see when they last accessed it and if they’ve made any comments on the feedback.
