Join the feedback party!
Receiving commentary from their peers keeps students active and engaged, and the amount of feedback students receive from multiple sources is extraordinary.
Teaching students how to provide meaningful feedback is a critical academic skill.
Pressure is taken off the teacher as students receive continuous attention from others.
In the Hive, teachers are in complete control of the learning environment.
Teachers may monitor the whole class at a glance and see each student’s progress in real-time.
They may instantly cluster students into different-sized groups.
They may also delete comments or mute students at any time, and students have multiple privacy options as they write.
Rubric-based Assessment Happens in The Hive
Rubric-based assessment occurs in the Hive so you can get the writing data your school needs.
Because the assessment tool saves teachers so much time, it's a feature that will actually get used.
Teachers select the elements they want to assess, and corresponding rubric shows up automatically.
Selected elements become highlighted for easy identification.
Students can also assess one another using the same rubric. This practice helps them internalize the language of the rubric.
The tool allows schools to view student writing proficiency element by element.
Students, teachers, and parents get instant access to data that shows writing growth over time.
Having access to data over time allows teachers, schools, and districts to truly understand how students are progressing as writers.
