View your feedback in the Gradebook

What is it?

When your instructor marks your work, they might provide you with written feedback. It is important to read this feedback carefully as not only will it praise good work, but it will provide constructive criticism to help you improve your mark further in future assignments. 

What does it do?

You can access your feedback directly on your assignment submission link or, if you want to see an overview of your assignments and see at a glance which of them have feedback attached, you can do this in the Gradebook and just click into the relevant assignment.
