After the teacher has turned on the student autonomy feature, students can now use Automated Feedback independently and configure their own criteria.
In order to use it:
First, navigate to the assignment.
The navigation depends on the set-up from the institution’s admin. The screenshot shows an entry in Brightspace.
Then, the student need to first upload a document.
Once the student has submitted a document, they can click on the
view feedback button in the
Automated Feedback module to begin reading feedback.
Once the document has been uploaded, and the student enters the document in Step 3, they can see their document with feedback in the sidebar and on the document.
Students can filter for criteria most relevant for them from the side bar
By default, the student see all feedback generated by all available criteria.
If they wish to filter for only criteria that are relevant for them, they can filter the feedback.
To filter feedback, first click on
Filter and then
More options in the side bar.
On the left side of this window, there is a list of categories.
Each of them contains a number of different feedback criteria that are reflected on the right side. Students can choose which criteria to select by checking the respective boxes.
In this case, the student chooses to only see feedback for
Abbreviation introduction and
Active voice. Once they are ready to continue, they can click on
Apply to see the feedback reflected on the document.
Now, the student will see feedback reflected as filtered.
Students can reuse their recent criteria selection under

More options to modify criteria configuration while a filter is selected, the changes are saved to
Unsaved filter > Unsaved Automated Feedback filter. If the student wishes to save these changes to be reused, they can do so by saving a new filter.
