Instructor, Biology
"I teach microbiology at a State University with class sizes from 30 - 90 with no available co-instructors or TAs. I really needed help streamlining grading and managing group work, and Kritik helps with that immensely!

I have used Kritik in both synchronous and asynchronous remote classes to create capstone group projects, and the modifiable rubrics and group work functionality is excellent.  Grades are simply downloaded at the end of the semester, and the ability to spotlight excellent work gives wonderful formative assessment to the entire class."

What Students say about Kritik

“I think using Kritik made writing the final paper less intimidating because it allowed for checkpoints.”
“I really liked being able to interact with the people grading me and vice versa. It felt genuine, and I really felt a desire to help people improve and felt the same from them."
“I think it should be implemented campus wide.”
