Discussions – View attached file feedback for discussion evaluations

Instructors’ attached files now appear in the Attached Files section for each student’s discussion evaluation. Students can view attached file feedback when viewing their evaluated discussion topic.

Instructors can view all attached files by clicking on the student’s name and selecting Discussions. Students can view all attached files by clicking on Discussions in Class Progress. Instructors and students can view all attached discussion evaluation files in the Class Progress tool.
