This article covers how to view an already created assignment, how to view an individual student's work, how to download your classes' submissions, and how to give instant feedback and grades while in Assignments. If you're looking to learn how to create an Assignment, click here.
Viewing an Assignment
First, navigate to the Assignments tab within the course page from which you're looking to view a assignment. Take a look at the example below. If you were interested in viewing the assignment "Submit 300 word introduction", just click on the title (circled in green).
Once you click the assignment title, you'll be brought to the assignment's individual page. As you can see below, the assignment description, embedded YouTube video, and attached files are all immediately visible.
Viewing Individual Submissions
If the assignment is visible to students and open for submissions, scroll down on your web browser and you will see a section titled Submissions.
If you are trying to view a specific student's submission, click the blue magnifying glass on the right of the Student's assignment row. In the example below, if you are attempting to view James Anderson's assignment, click the icon circled in green:
When clicked, the NoteBowl viewer will open, allowing you to view the assignment and instantly grade.
Quick Tip: By hovering over a student's row in the column "Status", you can see the exact time the student submitted his assignment!
Navigating the NoteBowl Viewer
The NoteBowl viewer simplifies the grading experience and provides an instant private chat between you and each individual student.
To edit the viewing size of the submitted document, look to the top right of the viewer (circled in green):
Scroll up and down on the document to view the entirety of the submission.
On the right of the NoteBowl viewer, you'll see a chat window. This chat gives you and the student a private window to converse about the submission or assignment. As you can see in the example below, Logan, the student, had a question regarding his assignment and Dr. Randolph uploaded a rubric for the assignment. To post text, just type in the empty box at the bottom of the chat window. To upload any files, just click the paperclip icon (circled in green).
You may have noticed the Grade section above the chat window! If you would like, you can add the assignment grade right in the NoteBowl viewer. When you hit enter after typing the numbered grade, NoteBowl sends the grade to the Gradebook. No longer do you need to hop back and forth between assignments and Gradebooks!
Downloading Assignment Submissions
To download a specific student's submission, look along the row of the student whose assignment you're looking to download. Click the blue download button, and the file will begin downloading to your computer. In the example below, if you were trying to download James Anderson's assignment, click the arrow circled in green:
If you enjoy downloading each student submission and grading them off the NoteBowl platform, simply click the blue download arrow next to the Submissions title.
