Feedback Overview (Students) Video Script

 

In this video you will learn how to leave feedback for your peers on peer review assignments and how to view feedback left on your submissions by teachers or other students.

A peer review allows you to give feedback to other students about their assignment submission. Additionally, other students can give you feedback on your assignment submissions. To complete a peer review, first open the peer review assignment. In the submission box on the sidebar, you will see Assigned Peer Reviews. Click the name of one of the assigned peers to begin reviewing. If you do not see your assigned peer reviews, you may need to submit your own assignment first. If the student uploaded a file as their submission, you can view their submission by clicking the View Feedback link.

You can leave annotations in specific places in the submission by using the annotation tools in
Canvas DocViewer. To leave a general comment about the submission, type in the comment box. You can also leave a media comment or attach a file.

If there is a rubric to be used for grading, click the Show Rubric link and fill it out as you review the assignment. Click Save Comment to save your rubric ratings. Then, click the Save button to save your changes. Canvas displays a message indicating you have completed the peer review.

There are several areas in Canvas where you can view your assignment feedback. On the List View dashboard, items with comments display a Feedback label and the most recent comment. Click the name of the assignment to access the Submission Details page to view the full feedback comment and view the rubric rating.

To view feedback in a specific course, click the name of the course. On the course home page you can view a summary of your recent feedback in the sidebar. Click the name of any assignment to access the Submission Details page to view the full comment. In the sidebar, you can view comments left on your submission by teachers or peer reviewers. Each comment will indicate the date it was left and who left it. If the peer review was anonymous, the comment will indicate it was from an Anonymous User.

If you uploaded a compatible file for your submission, and the reviewer made comments directly on your document, click the View Feedback link to view the comments made on your file. If your instructor included a rubric, click the Show Rubric link to view the rubric ratings.
