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.”
