Sarah VanLooNote: Seesaw isn't technically a CMS but I use it often. I wanted to score it and see how it compares to other options, which is why I included it as #4.

Please add a few criteria based on your Rubric 4.0, your discipline, and your context:
23
Teacher feedback is timely (criterion 1)1Because assignments & turn-ins are nearly instantaneous, feedback can be gively immediately (as Ts have time to do so)1same as with Canvas1same as with Canvas and Edmodo1Same as with Canvas, Edmodo, Google Classroom
24
Teacher can provide direct & specific feedback (criterion 2)1Ts can provide written feedback through the LMS. Verbal or video feedback could be recorded outside the CMS and attached to a comment.1same as with Canvas1same as with Canvas and Edmodo1Ts can provide feedback in writing, as an audio comment, or through a video - all of which can be created in Seesaw.
25
Assessment provides multiple means of representation (criterion 6)1Although it isn't inherently built in, T could easily provide this within the CMS1same as with Canvas1same as with Canvas and Edmodo1Same as with Canvas, Edmodo, Google Classroom
26
Allows teacher to communicate with families (Isn't on Rubric 4.0 but is important in K-5 setting.)1111
27
Easy to use, even for youngest students (Isn't on Rubric 4.0 but is also important in K-5 setting.)1Canvas has a LOT of built-in functionality. It can be complex but allows Ts to customize so that it is accessible for young Ss. I have used Canvas in school with K-5 and they did well with it.0In exploring through both T side and S side of Edmodo, it seems like the S side could be challenging for younger Ss.0same as with Edmodo1Seesaw's interface is easy and fun for Ss. It has a lot of built-in functionality for assignment completion, but not for tracking.
