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 will receive an e-mail notifying you that I have made a comment on one of your Assignments. If you look at your Assignments you will see the comment on the assignment: click View Assignment to it fully and read the comment. 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.
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!
