When you’re ready to grade, you can provide feedback to students in a couple of ways: As recorded audio or video, and as scores on the rubric with in-line comments. Here, we'll talk about the latter, if you'd like to also add video and audio feedback, click here.
1. First, navigate to the student submissions you want to grade. (Don’t know how? Click here.)
2. Once on a student’s submission, look at the rubric on the right side. Hover over the stars to see the proficiency labels and click on the star that best describes the student’s work.
3. To provide in-line feedback, select a specific sentence, word, or section of the students’ essay with your cursor. This will open the in-line feedback popup.
4. Write your comment in the text box. Note: If you decide not to include a comment, nothing will show up under the rubric item even if you have enabled RubricMatch. We strongly recommend you include comments with all highlights to make feedback clear for students.
5. Make sure the box next to “Enable RubricMatch” is checked. This will assign each of your rubric items a color that you can use to highlight issues in the student’s submission. Tip: If you don’t enable RubricMatch, the highlights will still show up for students, as will the comments, they just won’t be tied to a specific rubric item.
6. Next, click the number of the rubric you’d like to pair the highlight with.
7. Click “Done” to complete your comment or the trash icon to cancel it.
8. You can match multiple highlights to a single rubric item, which is especially useful for grammar, spelling, and punctuation feedback.
9. Finally, you can provide any overall comments or thoughts in the text box at the bottom of the rubric pane. When you're ready, click "Submit." (You can edit your grades/reviews if you accidentally submit before you're ready.)
10. Students can hover over highlights to view your feedback or see them in the rubric pane.
Important Note: Right now, you can match colors to up to 8 different rubric items. If your rubric has more than 8 items, you can always assign yellow and just let students know in a comment beneath the rubric item.
