What is the PostEm tool?
Instructors can use the PostEm tool to upload and distribute a comma-delimited (CSV) spreadsheet to present individual feedback and/or grades to students.
Instructors can upload as many feedback files as they want. Students only see their own individual feedback and/or grades.
The PostEm tool provides a convenient mechanism to post comments and grades for those instructors that regularly use Excel spreadsheet files to calculate grades. You might also use it to post class attendance records from a spreadsheet file.
PostEm CSV files must follow a particular format:
- The first column of the spreadsheet must contain the student usernames.
- The first row must contain headings.

As the instructor you can see when a student has last checked their feedback. Any students who have never checked will appear in red.
