How to provide feedback on assignments with submissions


1. Go to the Assignments tool by selecting Course Tools in the blue navigation bar.


Assignments is the third option under the Course Tools tab.


2. Select the drop-down menu next to the title of the assignment and click View Submissions.


The drop-down menu arrow is to the right of the assignment title. "View submissions" is the first drop-down item.


3. Select the submission you wish to provide feedback to and click View submission.


The "view submission" option is under each user's name.


4. You will see the student submission on the left-hand column. Use the right-hand column to input a score, mark with a rubric (if relevant), and provide various forms of feedback using the text box or file, audio, or video options as desired.


The assignment submission interface is split into the submission (left column) and feedback/scores (right column). The "publish" and "save draft" options are found in the bottom right corner.

5. Once you are finished, you can either click Save Draft and continue marking by using the arrows at the top of the right column, or immediately Publish the feedback to the individual learner. If you would like to publish feedback to all learners at once, select the Back to User Submissions in the top left corner and click the Publish All Feedback button found under the assignment title. If your learners are having difficulty viewing their feedback, please refer to Why can’t my learners view their grades?
