How do I give my students feedback on their extended responses?

Smart Lessons in Education Perfect include the capability for students to give self-marked extended responses. You can review their work and give them feedback on their free-form answers from the Control Panel.

This article assumes you've created a task for your students to work on. If you want to see students' work on a Smart Lesson which they've done independently, see How do I give my students feedback on Smart Lessons I haven't assigned as a task?

Open Tasks & Homework from the Control Panel. 


Select the Details button by hovering over the task whose results you want to see, then click the Feedback tab on the left hand side. 

Each extended response section of the Smart Lesson will be displayed, along with the number of students who have answered each question and how many answers are still unmarked.

Click Give Feedback to see your students' answers.

Each student's answers to each question will be listed on the left hand side. Click their names to see their attempt(s) in the context of the question, then type a comment and/or give them a star rating on their answer. 

When you click Submit, students will receive an email with your feedback (if we have their email address), and when they next go into the Smart Lesson they will see your feedback as well. 

Move from student to student by clicking on each student's name, and from question to question by clicking the Prev. Question and Next Question buttons at the bottom of the page.
