ALEXIS is an educational software package, designed to support teaching staff in a number of time-consuming tasks: organizing and managing courses, administrating student activities and results, and, above all, supplying printed feedback on written assignments. ALEXIS has been used successfully in the curricula of Nijenrode, the Netherlands School of Business, and Twente University of Technology. In this paper we describe the specifications of the software package, and pay special attention to its capability of supplying differentiated commentary on the same textual shortcomings.
