Perfect for All Marking and Feedback Methods

- EBI (Even Better If)
- WWW (What Went Well)
- Live marking
Better Valued by Students than 'Generics'
Having customised books, rather than generics, helps students to take better pride in their books, making it less likely that they will lose or deface them.
Keeps them in a better condition for when they are needed for revision near end of year exam periods.
No More Sticking in Sheets
It can be difficult to give thorough feedback without having to write or stick over part of your students’ work.
Customising can dramatically reduce your costs – particularly if you are currently using labels or sticking in feedback forms.
If you’re using feedback stickers or stamps, we can create a spot on each page for them without covering work.
