Written comment on draft
You receive written feedback from a Student Learning tutor on your assignment. We do this in Feedback Studio, via Moodle. Please be aware that it is not a face-to-face consultation.
What you need to do to upload your assignment:
Fill out the Student Learning consultation request form. That's all. Our administrator will email you with information about your consultation time, and a link with instructions for uploading your assignment into our Moodle paper.
Written comment FAQs
Which should I choose: Written comment on draft or Studiosity?
Both have benefits. Use the table graphic below to help you decide.
How do I know when my written comment is ready?
The tutor instructs Moodle to notify the student when written comment is ready to be viewed.
The tutor does this.
When the tutor is finished providing your written comment they will do several things.
First they will transfer your assignment status from Not Marked to Released. There may be a little message at this level with a summary from the tutor.
Then they will check the box that says "Notify students"
Finally, they will save changes, which completes the previous two actions.
You do not need to wait for this to happen before checking on the progress of your comment in Moodle, but once you have been notified by Moodle, you can know that your assignment comment is ready.
How do I find the feedback on my assignment?
You use the little pencil icon, or the coloured number under your assignment in the grade area to launch Feedback Studio. Watch this video to see what to do.
Can I get additional feedback on my written comment?
You can get additional help with understanding the comments provided by your Student Learning tutor in your written comment on draft.
You can also request further extension of feedback provided to you by a Student Learning tutor. The most efficient way to do this is to come to a drop-in. Alternatively, you can book a face-to-face consultation or video consultation and talk about the comments with a Student Learning tutor.
Will Turnitin (Tii) remember my assignment?
The short answer is "No".
No. Not this time.
Usually, Moodle has a setting that is turned on by default for all assignments that are submitted to Tii. However, at Student Learning we have carefully turned off that setting to instruct Tii that it must not remember your assignment. This means that it will not register a Similarity Index (SI) from your assignment when you upload your assignment for your lecturer to grade. (It has never happened yet, but if you have any problems with this, please let us know).
