What should I know?

Providing Feedback

Step 1: Go into the blue box on the right-hand side of the window and click on the middle button for Feedback Summary. This will open an area that will allow you to record your audio to give feedback or enter text feedback. 

Step 2: To add audio, click on the circle to start recording and the square to stop recording.

Step 3: Once you are done, listen to the recording to see if you are happy with it. There are no editing functions for this, so if you want to change something, you will need to delete the recording and start again. There is a three-minute time limit for this recording. 

Step 4: The text feedback area is more popular, and you can enter up to 5000 characters of feedback. You can bold, italicise, or underline your text, which may come in handy if you want to create sections within your feedback. You can also enter links by clicking the link button and entering the text and URL in the box provided. 

Click out of the right-hand window into the body of the essay or the header area to save your work

Entering a score

In the top right of the header area, you will see an empty box next to a backslash and the maximum score possible. To enter a score, click on the empty box, input a number, click out of the box into the body of the essay or the feedback area. 

Once you are done marking a submission, you can use the arrows in the header to move to a different submission.
