Student Comments

"Add Comments Tool" will insert a tool that permits students to make comments. Once a student has added a comment, they may change or delete it for 30 minutes. After that, only an instructor may change or delete it.


The Edit button will allow you to change certain details about the comment tool. This includes the following:

To save your changes, click Update Item.

The Delete option may be used to delete the comments block from the page. Note that the comments themselves remain in the database, although only an administrator will be able to retrieve them.


The points you enter apply to all comments by that student in that comment section. So if they have made multiple comments, any new score you enter will show next to every comment by that student.

In the Grading Pane you'll see a button Toggle Comments to the right of each student. That will show or hide a listing of all the comments entered by that student. Show Context will show you the whole page, with that student's comments highlighted.
