I have a specific workflow in Google Classroom to ensure that learners are able to work closely with me to complete tasks. Sometimes work is handed in that is not quite right and I expect it to be fixed. The process for this is not self-evident, so this post is about how to do this. If you uploaded or attached a file to the Assignment, you will not be able to make changes to that file unless you Unsubmit the Assignment first.
You must check the Assignments that you have handed in but do not have a mark to see if I have made a comment. If you look at your Assignments and you see a comment on the assignment: click View Assignment to view it fully and read the comment(s). If you are required to change the work that you handed in, do the following:
- You must first Unsubmit the Assignment.
- Make the changes required of you.
- Hand the Assignment in again.
- Add a Private Comment on the Assignment to notify me that you have made the necessary changes — this is important as if my comment is the last comment on an Assignment, I do not waste my time checking to see if anything new has been done to it — I only check when I can see by your comment that you have done what was asked of you. Keep the comment as short as possible: a simple “Done” is enough.
When you comment on the Assignments, the comment is private; only you and I can see it. When you make a reply comment to let me know you have completed the task, you must comment privately as well on the Assignment — do not comment where the rest of the class can see the comment.
Most Assignments are marked — the easiest way to tell if you are finished with an Assignment is to check if you have been awarded marks for that Assignment — if you have been awarded a mark, you are finished with that Assignment!
