Category: The categories will help you organize your comments (f.ex. by error type) within a comment set. Categories can be aligned with learning rubrics and will make it easier to find the right comment in the feedback editor.
- Language & Accuracy

If you would like to create a new category, simply write the name and click on enter on your keyboard.
Problem: This part will direct your students’ attention to the mistake they have made in the text. This can be a problem/ mistake in the text, but it can be praise for a successful structure.
To focus your students' attention on the solution part, do not write more than 30 words here.
Solution: We recommend that you not only point out what your students have to focus on, but also provide a solution or explanation to your students (e.g. explain the grammatical rule). Formative feedback focuses on giving students instruments, rules, means to improve their text.
- Explain the grammar rule behind a mistake
- Provide examples of the correct structure
- It’s the most important part of the comment; it should be specific, clear & easily understandable
- The solution field allows a variety of formats (e.g. icons, pictures, bullet points, etc.)
How can I embed a video, a recording, an exercise or a link?
Edword allows you to create motivating and interactive comments by embedding videos, exercises, recordings or links. To enable this feature click on the → + under Add extra material when creating or editing a comment.
Embedding a video: Click on the → video icon and open the video settings. Give the video a name and paste the URL of the video.
Adding a link: Click on the → link icon and paste the link URL. You can encourage your students to click on the link by writing a motivation in the “name field”. The link will open in a separate tab.
Making a recording: Click on the → recording icon and create a personal recording.
Embedding an exercise: Click on the → exercise icon, give the exercise a name and paste the URL of the exercise.
The Edword team recommends using H5P, an open source that allows teachers to create interactive and motivating exercises for their students. Students can see the embedded H5P quiz without leaving the feedback flow.
