"The amount of time it takes to read the essay is how long it takes to give feedback."
Vivian Cassel teaches English at Östra Gymnasiet, in Huddinge, Sweden. Before she started using Kaizena in 2013, "It used to take at shortest 30 minutes, and now it takes about 10-15 minutes. And that would be an essay of about 1500 words." Vivian uses Lessons to save her detailed feedback for re-use. Best of all, saving time doesn't come at the expense of quality: "My students talk about how well I give feedback, how quickly I give feedback, and how technologically advanced I am - they love it!"

Michael mainly uses Kaizena in his Human Geography class, where he practices project-based learning. Over the span of the term, his students are put into small groups and tasked with writing a report that answers the question: “How Can We Improve the Health of Our Community?”
