Files submitted to Submissions folders can be evaluated and given feedback in a number of ways. For information on annotating files in a Submissions folder, see
For instances in which students are unable to submit a file to a folder, see
Evaluating Students without Submissions in a Submission Folder
Note: These instructions discuss Submissions grading processes in the updated evaluation experience.
Because this is a beta update, there is a feature that is not available: there is a button to record video feedback, however, users are not yet able to do this.
To turn off the updated experience, locate the downward-facing arrow above the evaluation panel [A]. Select the
arrow, then select
Turn it off. Faculty are able to provide feedback about the updated experience if needed.
A working microphone connected to the device is needed for this function to work.
If students have not submitted files to a submission folder, instructors can still provide feedback.
While there is no way to submit a file to a submission folder on behalf of a student, there is a workaround to attach a file in instances where a student was not able to submit work on their own.
