In addition to unposting and commenting on individual responses, you can perform these actions for multiple students at the same time.

Go to Analytics and select a page

First, access Analytics. Then click on the blue box corresponding to the page you want to view.

After clicking on the blue box, you will see a detailed view of the student’s work on that page.

Review all student responses

From the page detail view, find the short-answer or response-board question you want to view. Select “View all responses” to see the full list of answers from your class on the question review screen. (Note: Writing templates allow single comments, but not multiple comments at once.)

Provide feedback to your students

Check the box next to each student whose response you would like to unpost or comment on.

Click Compose Comment to type your feedback.

Click Unpost after making a comment to revert responses to a draft state so that students can make edits and post their updated response.

Remember, following these steps allows you to provide the same comment to multiple students at once. You can also comment on individual student responses.

  • When you unpost open-ended questions, the student’s response reverts to a draft, and the student is notified.

  • The student will lose credit for completing the question until they post a new response.

Tip: Sort by shortest response using the drop-down menu to review possible incomplete responses from students like “...” or “I don’t know.”

Pin good responses

For response-board questions, you can also showcase good answers by pinning them. Select the pin icon beside the post(s) you want to spotlight.

Pinned responses will appear at the top of the list that students see after they submit their own answer. Plus, students with pinned responses receive a notification letting them know you’ve spotlighted their work!

How students view your feedback

When you unpost, comment on, or pin student work, the student will receive a notification in the upper right corner of their webtext.

Students also receive emails when they have new notifications.
