ZenGengo features 10 engaging and interactive assignment types that have been specially designed for language learning. Assignments cover all 4 language skills: listening, reading, writing, and speaking. Features such as AI voice recognition, text-to-speech, and auto-grading save teachers countless hours while ensuring that students remain motivated and challenged on the path to greater proficiency.
In the past, tests and grades were the main tools used to inform students of their progress in a language. Over time, however, emphasis has shifted toward the learning process, and feedback became the primary means of guiding students toward greater proficiency.
ZenGengo’s 10 auto-graded assignment types provide students with instant feedback on their performance in a given task. But there are additional options that teachers can exercise to improve learning efficiency and keep learners motivated. For each of the assignment types, teachers are able to add custom feedback that is shown to learners upon submission. This feedback can take the form of text, images, audio, video, PDFs or even embedded resources.
For Audio Recording, Video Recording and Written Report assignments, teachers are able to provide personalized feedback in 3 modalities: text, audio and video. This feedback can be delivered directly to the student’s inbox or accessed via a URL.
It’s important that teachers are able to monitor student performance and engagement as they progress through their language studies. Assignment submissions can be automatically graded with results stored in the gradebook. Each ZenGengo folder has a unique gradebook that can be viewed on the platform or downloaded as an Excel or CSV file.
A quick look at the gradebook can tell teachers who is progressing well and who requires extra attention.
