The goal of Packback Deep Dives is to bring every student to a baseline level of writing skills so that they can be equitably instructed based on the quality of their ideas. Deep Dives helps every student build a strong foundation of writing and research skills. Through instant AI feedback, students have the opportunity to iterate on their work based on your specific assessment criteria. Instructors receive grading support from our AI grading assistant to help assess the writing mechanics of a piece, so they can focus your feedback on students’ ideas and content.


3 Engines of Deep Dives:

Digital Writing Tutor: Deep Dives uses similar AI-coaching from the discussion platform to help students think through their writing for longer assignments. It provides live feedback as they type on word count, grammar, flow, and research quality. 

Digital Research Assistant: Deep Dives coaches students on all things source-related. Students get live feedback on source quality and it helps identify and cite them automatically!

Digital Grading Assistant: Deep Dives can score things like grammar, word count, flow, and research quality automatically. This allows instructors to coach students on writing content instead of writing basics. Ideas and Content will always be instructor scored.
