This article is a step by step guide for students on Assignment Review, with all the information any student needs to get started.

Updated over a week ago


In this article we will walk you through how to use Assignment Review from the perspective of a student

If you’d like more information on how this tool works, you can check out the overview article here:

Tool In Action

Step 1: Instructions

In this step, you can read the instructions that have been set by your teacher.

Step 2: Hand in

Hand in your assignment at Step 2: Hand in. You can either click select file to upload a file from your computer, or drag a file into the box. You also have the possibility to paste a website link, for example if you want to upload a Youtube video. Click submit.

Note: Ensure you upload your files as instructed (often specified just below "Hand in") and before the deadline. While late submissions may sometimes be allowed by your teacher, it’s important to follow the specified guidelines. Submissions can be made in most available formats, but your teacher's instructions will typically clarify the accepted formats.

When you have handed in your work, the following screen will appear. You should see the name of your file, a green checkmark with the text hand-in received, and a bin symbol in case you want to delete a submission.

Note: you will only be able to delete a submission before the assignment deadline.

If you want, you can add more files. By clicking on your file, you can view your submission in a separate window.

Submissions: Accessibility

With any comment, instruction, submission or within our interactive study materials, you have the possibility to add alternative accessible files as attachments. These options are:

  • Subtitles

    • We auto generate subtitles based on the submitted file - you can download and edit the subtitle file if you want to make changes.

    • Subtitles can also be uploaded by the user - if you want to add subtitles for your own instruction media instead of using the ones auto generated by FeedbackFruits, you can do so.

  • Audio description

    • You can record an audio description within the FeedbackFruits tool.

    • You can also create and attach an audio descriptive file yourself.

  • Text description

    • You can write a text description for any images or videos.

How will this look?

As a submitter

When submitting a file, by clicking on the three dots on the right, you can click on 'Manage accessibility'. You will be presented with a pop-up indicating the accessible alternatives you can upload. You can easily upload or autogenerate your subtitles, upload or record audio, or add a text description in the same fashion as in other multimedia attachments in FeedbackFruits. A tag with the accessibility icon will appear next to the submission. You can manage accessibility any time.

Managing accessibility in submitted files.

Adding accessible alternative attachments.

As a reviewer:

In the submission step, next to the uploaded file, if accessible alternatives have been added, a green-tagged chip with the Accessibility icon will appear indicating the amount of accessibility alternatives available for that file type.

When inside a submission, by clicking on the top right corner 3 dots or the accessibility icon, the user can access the accessible alternatives.

Step 3: Feedback by teacher

As the teacher provides feedback in this assignment format, you, as a student, can proceed directly to the next step (Step 4: Read received feedback) once the teacher has completed giving feedback.

Step 4: Read received feedback

When the teacher completes their feedback, you see the following. First, you see the file you submitted again at the bottom of the Read received feedback box. As you see, the number of added comments displays next to it (see image below). To start reading the feedback, click on the blue text balloons to see the specific comments.

To see all the feedback, click on View feedback. This will open the module's main screen.

On the left side, you will see the document (or a different type of file) with perhaps annotations.

The teacher can also simply give you a score and comment without using the in-text annotation option (displayed as grey boxes which will turn purple when you hover your mouse over them). If you click on them, they will reveal the attached comment. 

On the right side, the feedback/social box can be seen. Here you will see all of the scores you obtained, the requirements they were based on, as well as having the possibility see the comments of your teacher. As soon as you read them, this will log in the system, and the teacher will know if you checked your progress.

To help you achieve deeper learning, you can upvote (thumbs up) and reply to your teacher's feedback. This will allow you to clarify whatever you might not fully understand or for adding further explanations. Teachers can also use this to answer to your additions.

You can also download the feedback as seen in the top right of the image below.

Click the top left arrow to go back to the overview.

Step 5: Reflect on the assignment (if made available)

If your teacher has added the step to reflect on the assignment, it will be shown at step 5. Students can start with this step when step 3 Give feedback to your peers is completed. When this is not yet the case, the step will be presented as shown in the image below.

Below is an example of a student that completed their reflection on their assignment with at the top of the step 5 section, the instructions from the teacher. When the deadline has passed (if there is a deadline), the reflection cannot be edited anymore.


Finally, at the bottom of the assignment, the points of the grading are shown (see image below as an example).

When the teacher hasn't enabled grading (yet), then the assignment won't be graded unless your teacher enables it. This grading section will then be shown as in the image below:
