How do I attach feedback to students' activities?

Buzz allows you to easily attach feedback when grading and returning activities with the Activity Grader, Grade Editor, and Needs grading screens.

Simply enter your feedback in the field labeled Feedback (Visible to Student) in the right panel. You can:

  1. Collapse and expand the field by clicking the header.
  2. Choose font styles.
  3. Add links.
  4. Choose font and highlight colors.
  5. Insert images.
  6. Create audio or video feedback.
  7. Insert equations.
  8. Expand the field for fullscreen use.
  9. Use replacement variables.
  10. Create and edit templated feedback for reuse with other students/activities.
  11. Create a Private Note using for yourself that the student won't see.

A Returned Attachments field appears between the Feedback and Private Note fields if the activity allows student dropbox submissions (available for Assignment and Custom activity types). Use this field to return attachments and feedback.

Is there a way to increase the size of the feedback indicator that shows up on the student's board when they open the class?


I find the students don't notice that the feedback was left for them. How do we make it more eye catching?

Hello Michael!

Currently there is not a way to increase the size of the feedback indicator in the student's activity stream. This will require an enhancement request for such a feature.   

One potential option is that teachers may email their students. Teachers may let students know when they have graded activities to check for feedback if it was left.
