How Students View the Feedback Provided in Rubrics

This is for instructors and students alike. For those of you who are instructing, this could come in handy as a resource for any students who are claiming they can’t find the feedback you know you provided for their assignment. As a first step in addressing that issue, consider sending the student to this post. For students…well, of course this is handy! One of the most important interactions you can have with your teacher is his or her feedback following an assignment, including feedback rubrics that were provided at the start of the course. Don’t let it go to waste!

We’ve heard that some students may have been struggling to locate this rubric-contextual feedback in their gradebook, so we’ve put together these screenshots to show how to do it.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Viewing Feedback Rubrics

First, access your grades. In most online programs at UNE, you can do this by clicking “My Grades” in the sidebar.

You will then see a list of your graded assignments organized in reverse chronological order, like so:

What you want to click in order to see the feedback your instructor provided, for that specific assignment, is the “View Rubric” link. This will produce a pop-up window in which you can see all the criteria the instructor was using to grade your assignment, as well as contextual feedback related to that criteria, like so:

Each cell of the rubric will correspond to a score, often with a description of the criteria defining what the instructor is looking for in awarding that score. Below that description of the criteria is where the instructor’s feedback will appear. Additional, overall feedback will appear at the bottom of the rubric pop-up window.

So, there you have it! Different feedback rubrics will look a little different, and different instructors will also use them differently from one another, but in all cases students should be able to find their instructors feedback if they follow these steps.
