This article will walk you through how you can monitor your students' progress, view and download their submissions and most importantly: how to provide feedback to your students.
Student Progress Overview
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.
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, handed in their work, if you have already provided feedback, the average time per review you spent, the total 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. Click here for the caption on learning analytics symbols.
It is also possible to export all the student data into an excel file. This file contains information concerning student uploads, review ratings, review comments and grading. You can download this export by clicking on the 'download' 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: Submissions
Here you see an overview of all the students who have handed in their work, if they handed it on time or not, and which students are still in progress. If the deadline has not yet passed, you can click postpone next to the deadline to change the deadline. If the deadline has passed, but you want students to be able to still submit their work, you can edit the assignment, and either change the deadline or enable allow late hand-in).
You can also view student submissions online. Click on the blue icon with a document in each student row to see which files they submitted. Click view to display the submitted work.
Note that If the student submitted a video, you will see the video player instead of the document.
Step 3: Give Feedback
How to provide feedback to your students?
Start by clicking the submission of the student you'd like to review. You will see the submitted work, with the review criteria listed in the right sidebar. To give a score for criterion, drag the slider.
If you've selected the collaboration option hand in work individually, show in groups, the students will be displayed in groups, allowing each teacher to easily select the students from groups they've been assigned to review.
To give qualitative feedback, drag a box around the section of the text that you want to give feedback on (see the screenshot below). Select the applicable criterion from the drop-down menu in the top-right corner, and write your comment.
If your comment concerns the text as a whole rather than a specific section, click the purple pen button on the bottom right of the screen, select the appropriate criterion, and write your comment. Additionally, you can add an attachment to your comment.
Students can comment on your feedback. Click here, for an explanation on how to respond to such comments.
Step 4: 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. Students make progress in the analytics by reading their received feedback comments.
Click on the progress circle next to the student's name, under review progress, to bring up an overview of the student's work (as shown in the image below). Click view to display the work that the student handed in (including the feedback they received).
Step 5: 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 5 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.
If you've included grading in the settings, then it will be visible after the final step. In the image below you can see how this will look like. By clicking the arrow on the right or by the use of the scrollbar at the bottom, you can view the rest of the grade sections (from left to right). At the far right, there is also an 'optional grade adjustment' . You can add or substract points for each student.
