1. How do I add students to my assignments and how do I group them?
This depends on the type of integration. If you are from a partner university with full integration that uses Canvas, Blackboard or Brightspace, students groups are synced from your LMS. You can create these students groups in your LMS environment, and select within an FeedbackFruits assignment which students you would like to have participate in the assignments. Details on how this works can be found here.
If you are not from a partner university, have limited LMS integration, use a different LMS, students can navigate to the assignment within the LMS course. However, groups have to be created manually. Details on how to do this can be found here.
When using the website platform, students have to be invited manually. Instructions on how this can be done is available here. Groups also have to be assigned manually, information on how to do that can be found here.
2. When can I see who the students are reviewing?
In Peer Review and Group Member Evaluation, students are allocated reviews after the hand-in deadline is passed. Before that time neither you nor the students can see who they have to review.
When the 'allow late hand-in' option is enabled, students that hand-in after the deadline has passed will be allocated a review on a 'first-come, first-serve' base.
More information on how peers are assigned can be found here.
3. How can I keep track of student activity in my assignments?
Once the students have made progress in the assignment the analytics window will become visible. Once the 'statistics per active students' are available, you can follow your students' progress in the statistics overview at the top of the assignment, or at the statistic overview at each respective assignment step. More information on how to navigate within the statistics and the analytics symbols is available here.
There is an option to download the statistics in a CSV file. You can download these analytics by clicking on the 'download' button in the introduction window of the assignment. This is especially useful for assignments that contain larger amounts of students.
4. How can I see who the students are reviewing?
The easiest way to figure out who is set to review who, is by downloading the assignment analytics in a CSV file as mentioned above. This download will become available only after the students have made progress.
This file provides a concise overview of all student activity in the assignment such as submissions, review comments and ratings.
5. Can I delete a hand-in?
Hand-in's can only be deleted by students when the hand-in deadline has not yet passed. This can be done by clicking on the 'trash' icon on the far-right of the hand-in.
After the deadline has passed it is no longer possible for students to delete their submissions as that could interfere with the reviewing process.
6. Can I view the assignment I just created as a student?
Unfortunately, the student view in your LMS is not compatible with FeedbackFruits, meaning you cannot use this to go through the assignment yourself as a student.
Alternatively, you can ask you LMS admin to create a separate student account for you to use for testing, or you can ask our support team to check the assignment for you.
7. What browser works best with FeedbackFruits?
We recommend using Chrome or Firefox, we discourage the use of Edge and Internet Explorer.
