SoftLINK Version 14

Student Feedback Mode

SoftLINK’s new Student Feedback Mode provides educators a great way to capture how their students feel.  A teacher can quickly gauge their students’ confidence on a topic.  This helps the teacher to decide if they can move onto the next topic or if they need to spend additional time on the current topic.  Ultimately, this will help the teacher increase their class’s overall comprehension.

SoftLINK provides several different styles of visual indicators to choose from.  Once the desired option is selected, a dialog box appears and allows the teacher to enter the question they want to pose to the class.  The questions, along with the visual option chosen, will appear on the students’ workstations.  The students can then make their selection from the options provided to them.

SoftLINK Feedback and Wellness Mode

The results from the student feedback are reported back to the SoftLINK Tutor in two formats.  The first, the list style report, displays each individual student’s feedback and allows the teacher to see each student’s mood/understanding response.  The chart view provides a holistic view of the responses, giving the teacher a general mood/understanding of the entire class.

Easy mode
