    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.

    Hey folks! Just want to let you know, this is for sure something we want to do! I'm not 100% sure when it'll make it on our roadmap, but it is currently a feature on a project I'm researching and designing~ Gradebook Import/Export.
