    Problem:

    Instructors need to upload comments for each student for an external assignment and have it displayed in the gradebook view for students.

     

    Use Case:

    This is especially significant when uploading assignment scores from an external system (student response "clicker" tools, Scantron services, external learning assessments). Often those external tools have a comments field with important details regarding the student's performance. In some cases the external system includes critical item information (e.g. "You answered A; The correct answer was B").

     

    Proposed Solution:

    1. Allow a comments field (column) in the gradebook import csv file.
    2. Display the comment in a similar way that assignment comments are currently handled.
    3. BONUS POINTS: Allow the comments to be exported in the Gradebook export csv.
