This article will guide you through our Assignment Review tool and its possibilities. This article is written to help you to enhance your understanding of the functionalities of this tool.
Step 1: Instructions
In step 1 you will find the instructions that have been set by your teacher and you will see the people that are in your group.
Step 2: Hand in
When you scroll down to step 2, you will find the box where you need to hand in your file(s). 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. Make sure to upload your files in the instructed manner (sometimes written just below "Hand in") and of course, before the deadline (sometimes, late submissions may be allowed by your teacher). Submissions can be done in most available formats, however, instructions left by your teacher will often clarify this aspect.
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.
Step 3: Feedback by teacher
Since the teacher is the one to provide feedback in this type of assignment, as a student you can move straight on to the next step (step 4: Read received feedback) after the teacher has finished giving feedback.
Step 4: Read received feedback
When the teacher has completed their feedback, you will see the following. First, you will see the file you submitted again at the bottom of the "Read received feedback" box. As you can see, the number of added comments is displayed 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 the files to see the whole document. 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.

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:
