How does Self-Assessment of work look as a student?

Updated over a week ago

This article will walk you through how you can upload and view your submissions, review your own work, and read your received feedback.

Step 1: Instructions

In step 1 you can read the instructions that have been set by your teacher.

Step 2: Submissions

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. Read here which video platforms are supported. Note that the link has to be publicly available.

When you have handed in your work, the following screen will appear. Depending on the settings of the assignment, you can add more files. By clicking on your file, you can view your submission in a separate window. If you have uploaded the wrong file, you can delete your submission by clicking on the trash icon and you can upload a new file afterwards.

Step 3: Review your own work

Before you can start reviewing, you have to hand in your own work.

If you have not done that yet, this is what you will see.

Once you have submitted your deliverable, you can start reviewing your own work.

This can be done by clicking on the file icon right below your profile picture.

The following screen will then appear (see below). On the right-hand side in the taskbar, you can see the criteria (which the teacher composed) on which you need to review the file. By clicking on the arrow '>', you can hide or open the taskbar. In the example below, it is required to give three scale ratings to finish the self-evaluation. It is also possible to write a comment under the criteria. To write a comment you can click write feedback.

It is also possible to write a comment by clicking on the plus icon. You can also link your comment to a certain part of the text by making a selection. You can either annotate a certain area of the document as seen below, or annotate a sentence or word in the document. When your deliverable is a video or audio file, you can select a part of the timeline to link your comment to. When writing a comment, you can choose to add an attachment to the comment. To save the comment, press post.

Below you can see that the student has given himself a 3 out of 3 rating and left a comment.

You can annotate more than once under the same criterion. If needed, you can place several comments belonging to several pieces of text under the same criterion.

When you have completed reviewing the text, you will see the following screen. The criteria have collapsed, if you want to open them again just press on the criterion. When you are finished, press done.

You are able to edit your comments and ratings until the deadline.

When giving feedback on videos the student can click on purple plus icon on the timeline. The comment will be attached to the selected timestamp.

Students will be able to attach their comment to the timestamp, writing their feedback comment in the sidebar.

Step 4: Read received feedback

When you have finished the self-evaluation, you are able to read and reflect on the comments filled in before. You can open the overview with your feedback by clicking on review overview, your profile picture or the comments icon on the right.

This will lead you to an overview of your self-assessment for each criterion.

If you then click on the document icon below your profile picture, you will access your deliverable.

After opening the document, you can see the comments you left. The grey area in the text is an annotation that you previously made. If you click on it, you will be redirected to the comment that belongs to it. In the taskbar, you will find the remarks and comments you left during the reviewing process. You can respectively further comment on them or upvote them (for example if you spot a particularly sharp observation that could help you improve your work) by clicking on the two buttons under the comment.

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.

When you are done reading all the feedback, your progress will be shown as 'complete'.

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 ‘Review your own work’ 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).

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:
