  1. Possible feedback from your teacher is visible only after the Post date. Contact the teacher, if your feedback is visible before the post date.
  2. Open the feedback view by clicking any of the links marked in the screen capture. Feedback Studio opens in a new tab.

1.2. Check different forms of feedback


Your teacher can give you feedback in three different ways, and you should check all of them (items 1 to 3 in the screen capture):

  1. A possible grade is located in the right upper corner. This grade can be seen also in the MyCourses inbox as well as in the MyCourses Grader.
  2. Check that the feedback written on the document is shown: a black icon = instructor feedback layer is hidden; a blue icon = instructor feedback layer is shown. If the icon is black, click on it in order to see the feedback.
    1. Click on a speech bubble to see the comment in it. See also items 2.1.1 - 2.1.2. in the screen capture below.
    2. Some parts can be struck out from the text.
    3. Some comments can be seen directly in the document.
    4. Your teacher might have highlighted parts of the text with a colour with a bubble comment next to it.
  3. Click the blue speech bubble to see feedback concerning the whole document. The Instructor feedback view opens on the right. See also items 3.1.-3.3. in the screen capture below.
  4. If the teacher has highlighted parts of the text with colours, you can temporarily hide similarity colours (item 4.1 in the screen capture) by clicking the icon of the similarity layer  (item 4). A red icon = similarity layer is shown; a black icon = a similarity layer is hidden.
  5. You can download a pdf file of your document with all feedback put together excluding possible audio feedback:
    • check that the instructor feedback layer is visible (item 2 is blue). To include the similarity remarks in the pdf as well, check that the similarity level is visible (item 4 is red)
    • choose Current View in the appearing pop-up window to get the pdf file.
