This article will walk you through how you can monitor your students' progress, view and view the feedback they gave each other in a Group Member Evaluation assignment. 

In the top-right corner of the screen, you can click the focus button to display the assignment in full screen mode. Click the three dots to edit the assignment.

Student Progress Overview

At the top of the assignment, you will see the Overall student progress overview. Click on Statistics per active student to see individual students' progress. Here you can see if students have read the instructions, given feedback, the total number of review comments, and finally, if students have read the feedback they received. 

Click on the headers in each column to change the order (ascending or descending) in which students are displayed.

The check marks under read instructions mean that that student has finished the step. The light purple dot means the student has not read the instructions yet. The red dot means the student has missed the deadline for handing in.

Under the give feedback header, you see a rod for each review that a student needs to complete. In the example in the screenshot, students need to complete two reviews. A dark purple rod stands for a finished review.

A light purple rod means a peer has been assigned for the student to evaluate, but the evaluation is not yet complete.

A white rod means the student has not yet been assigned a student to evaluate, click here for an explanation on how peers are assigned.

It is also possible to export all the student data into an excel file. This file contains information concerning review ratings, review comments and grading. You can download this export by clicking on the 'export analytics' button in the overall student progress window.

Step 1: Instructions

Here you'll see the instructions you set when you configured the assignment. You can change these by clicking the three dots in the top-right corner of the screen.

Step 2: Given Reviews

In step 2 you see which students finished their reviews, how many criteria they finished,  and the total number of comments they wrote. Click the headers to change the order (ascending or descending) in which students are displayed. By clicking on the three dots in Review Progress you can enable show ratings per criterion. After enabling this the average review rating given by the student will be visible in the table.

You can navigate through the reviews via the playlist. You can either go through all the reviews by clicking on 'view all', or a through the reviews of a specific group or student .

When clicking on 'view all' you can see a heat map off all student ratings in the rubric. You can also find a heat map for the ratings per group.

Navigate to a specific student review by either going through the playlist or by clicking 'view' behind the student name in the assignment overview. In this overview of the student review you can see all the given ratings and reviews the student provided in the assignment.

Use the > button to navigate back and forth between a single review and the accumulated reviews. Click on the 'x comments' button per criterion to see the specific comments the student provided. In this menu teachers are also able to add or reply to comments.

Step 3: Received Reviews

Here you see an overview of which students have read all the feedback they received, and which have not (yet) done so. Click the headers for the columns to reverse the order (ascending or descending) in which students are displayed. 

Under review progress, you can see the percentage of how far the student is with reading and reflecting on their feedback comments.

In the overview you can also see how many comments the student has seen, if they written a reflection (only if you enabled the option write a reflection on the received feedback when you configured the assignment) and when they were last active. 

In the column reflection written, a dark purple check mark means it was written in time. A light purple circle means it has not (yet) been written. A red circle means the student did not write the reflection and the deadline has passed.

You can access the review comments the same as you can at step 2, by clicking 'view all' or by 'viewing' a specific group or student. The overview and heat map looks the same as for step 2, only that in this overview you can see the received ratings and reviews per group or student.

Click on the progress statement under review progress to get the following screen. Here you see the written reflection Click view or the text balloon (comment) to view the work that the student handed in (including the feedback they received).

Step 4: Reflections on the assignment (optional)

Writing a reflection is a valuable step to end an assignment with. The student can for instance write a reflection on how the whole process of giving feedback went. The teacher sees this reflection in an overview in step 4 as shown in the image below. Here the teacher can see which groups and specific students have made progress on completing their reflection. Only groups of which students have made progress with this step are shown like the image below. When wanting to read the reflection of a specific student, clicking on “completed” next to the name of the student will give you their reflection.

This concludes the Group Member Evaluation | Teacher Perspective tutorial.
