FLOWsentiment will let wiseflow build a report for each student about how your feedback on a students work can be perceived by the student. The report will, based on your feedback, try to categorise all of your text into a few different categories. This can help Assessors getting an overview over which students might have received too harsh feedback and who have not. A detailed percentage report can also be given for each student to give an idea about how the assessment is perceived overall to student.
Creating a feedback analysis
It is possible for an assessor to request a feedback analysis by clicking on the "Feedback analysis" button above the table of participants.
Requesting feedback can be done by marking which types of shared feedback you want to be incorporated into the report. You have the option of choosing between feedback shared with the participant, the assessor or both. Clicking the "Request feedback analysis" will start the feedback analysis.
The feedback analysis will not be ready as soon as you click the request button, but while waiting for a feedback report, Wiseflow will display a "watch" next to a new column that has appeared along with the feedback analysis. The "Feedback sentiment" column will contain all information related to the feedback analysis.
Viewing the feedback analysis:
When a feedback analysis report has finished, it will be possible to see a coloured box with a percentage in it. The box represents the category with the highest percentage and the type of feedback it was.
By clicking on the box you will be able to get a more detailed report about how your feedback has been divided up for this participant. There are 4 colours used for the categories:
- Grey: This colour represents all neutral feedback given to the participant, meaning it had no positive or negative impact.
- Green: Green represents all positive feedback given to a participant.
- Yellow: The Yellow colour represents all mixed feedback, which means that all sentences or pieces of feedback that can have both a negative and a positive point goes into this category. Note that this is not the same as neutral, that is completely without any overly positive or negative remarks.
- Red: Red is the colour of all negative feedback. This can be feedback that would cast a negative light on the participants assignment and talent in creating the assignment. This can be negative or non-constructive criticism that serves no purpose besides making the participant feel bad about their handed in material.
