Q. I have had my students turn in their papers through Blackboard, and have read and commented on them in MS Word, and then uploaded them back to the students along with their grade. But I am not sure how to direct students to download their papers with my comments on them. And how can I verify that my upload worked?
A. To confirm that your upload worked, follow these steps:
- Go to the Grade Center in your course, find the column for the assignment, and click on the chevron in the cell for the student whose paper you want to confirm.
- Click on View Grade Details.
- Click on the View Attempt button in the lower right corner on the Grade Details page.
- Scroll down to #3: Grade Current Attempt and look underneath the text box, at Attached files – you should see the commented file you attached for this student on this assignment.
Students can see their graded and commented papers either by going back to where the assignment is posted and clicking on it again to bring up the Review Submission History page, or by going to Tools > My Grades and clicking on the score for that assignment, which should be an active link if you have attached a document. Once a student is on the Review Submission page, s/he can view or download the document.
