Brisk has a new look!

Use ANY Brisk tool on Youtube videos! You can create lesson plans, quizzes, feedback, resources, rubrics... directly from a Youtube video. If you're assessing a student project that was uploaded to Youtube, you can even give feedback directly from there!
Four Administrative Tasks
Need to spin up an email, newsletter, letters of rec, or observation notes... in seconds? A brand new suite of administrative tools have been added to the Create library... with more coming soon. Your plate just got a whole lot lighter.
Personalize to your learners
Once you've left feedback with Brisk on 5 or more assignments, personalized features will appear across all tools in the Create Library. By selecting the Personalize to my learners checkbox, Brisk will automatically differentiate curriculum to better address your learners' specific challenges and needs.
Insights From Your Feedback
Swamped with tracking insights across numerous student assignments? Leave feedback with Brisk on just five assignments to unlock Feedback Insights. Every time you give feedback, this tool becomes more powerful as it surfaces real-time, dynamic insights that capture what your students need.
And that's not all! Once areas of improvement are identified, click the Lesson Plan, Quiz, or Resource buttons to rapidly create content that targets those specific areas. For example, if your students are struggling with citing their sources, you can Brisk a lesson plan to enhance that skill - right there.
Introducing, Inspect Writing
Struggling with unreliable AI detectors? Inspect Writing reimagines student writing analysis. Replay a detailed step-by-step of your students' revision history, their copy/paste actions, and more. Try it and see the difference!

TWO NEW FEEDBACK STYLES
When you click 'Give Feedback' in Brisk, you'll see 2 new options: Rubric Criteria and Next Steps (in addition to your favorites, Targeted and Glows & Grows).
GIVE FEEDBACK ON SPECIFIC SEGMENTS OF TEXT
Here's how: Simply select a segment of text within any doc, article, etc. Then use Brisk to give feedback, write & generate resources, detect AI writing, and/or change the reading level on that segment.
INSERT FEEDBACK INTO A TABLE
Seeking a more structured way to organize feedback? Now clicking 'Insert' will add Brisk's feedback into a table layout. With this new functionality, the feedback you provide students can be formatted to align with the structured table of your rubric, making it more clear and cohesive.
