Commenting on Work

Top  Previous  Next

Commenting on work is a feature that allows a teacher to make notes and audio recordings on children's work, which are accessible for that child.

Each individual child will only be able to see and here the comment that the teacher has added to their own work and not comments or recording on other pupils' work. This applies even if the work is in a shared folder.You can toggle between showing and hiding the work that has been commented on using the Filter by Comment option in the search bar.

If you wish to see only the work that has not yet been commented on click the "Show uncommented" button.  This will allow you as a teacher to quickly add comments to the uncommented work. To go back to seeing all the files (both commented and uncommented click the "clear" button.
