Teaching Tools

Feedback Forward

Feedback Forward is a free browser extension that empowers teachers to provide students with direct feedback on the goals that matter most for their classes.

Giving students meaningful, real-time feedback encourages them to become more actively engaged in their learning. This type of open communication allows students to revise their work and adjust their thinking while still involved in a project. And by tracking engagement, teachers can also respond on the fly to their students’ progress and needs.

With auto-generated grades, customizable visualizations and seamless integration into the Clever system, Feedback Forward enables teachers to focus on engaging their students rather than grading them.

Hear directly from high school teachers who actively use the Quest Forward Workspace every day.

“Students can see where they’re at and are able to see the feedback that I give them… Everything is laid out for them from the start. So I like it a lot. I’ve never had anything like this.”

Rachel, English Teacher
Omaha, NE

“I think it’s very empowering… it lets me know that I’m growing. With grades, you might get an A or a B or a C, but it doesn’t show growth necessarily. With this system… it shows, hey, I grew on that assignment.”

Paa Yaw, Student
Omaha, NE

“My relationship with my students is incredible I’m able to collaborate with them, I’m able to get them on board with my teaching. It doesn’t feel like work, it’s actually fun. I look forward to every class.”

Max, Social Sciences Teacher
