To give feedback you may want to upload a file containing your comments for each student to the gradebook.
To get to the submitted assignments click on a link to the assignments, from the Activities block or from the heading of a gradebook column. As the instructor you should see a list of assignments. When you click on the assignment you want to check or provide feedback for, you can click on View/grade all submissions. You will get a page which shows all submitted assignments and allows you to grade them.
It will look something like this:
Here’s what you see when you click Grade:
BUT, if you edit assignment grades directly in the gradebook, an “overridden” flag is set, meaning that the grade can no longer be edited from the assignment submission page, as described above AND files that you added previously may no longer appear to you or your students.
Here’s what it means to edit assignment grades directly in the gradebook. This is NOT recommended if you want to give Feedback comments, including files with feedback.
Go to the gradebook and turn editing on and you will see this:
Any grades with a peach background will no longer be able to be edited on the Assignment Submission page. And, if feedback had already been given it may be lost.
Unfortunately there is not a simple solution for this problem. If you have entered grades directly in the gradebook, you will have to send the feedback files to your students a different way, instead of through the gradebook.
