How do I add PostEm feedback?
Instructors use a comma-delimited (CSV) spreadsheet file to present individual feedback and/or grades to students. This spreadsheet file must follow a particular format:
- Your file must be saved in .CSV format. You can save Microsoft Excel spreadsheets as CSV files.
- The first column of your file must contain individuals' usernames in lower case.
- The first row of your file must contain headings; every column must have a heading.
Once you have created your file, you can modify it as you wish, as long as you stay within the guidelines above.
Tip: You can download a CSV file that includes the student usernames under Gradebook > All Grades > Export as CSV (or from Gradebook2 > Tools > Export). You can also download a CSV file that includes the student usernames under Roster > Export.
Select the PostEm tool from the Tool Menu of your site.
Note: The PostEm tool is sometimes named Feedback.
Enter a Title for the Feedback file. This is the title students will see when they go to PostEm to view their feedback.
Click the Choose a CSV file or URL from Resources button to select your file.
Click the Browse button to locate the file on your computer and select it for upload.
Note: If you have already uploaded the CSV file to Resources you could locate the file and select it from the Resources file listing.
Check the box next to Release feedback to participants? and then click Post.
You will be prompted to verify your file upload. The first row of data will be previewed for you. If everything looks correct, click Save.
This displays the individual student's feedback.
Choose the student you want to view from the drop-down menu of participant usernames.
If you would like to replace the CSV file with a different file, click Update.
