Text comments allow teachers to write directly onto the student assignment. They are best suited to marginal comments in white spaces of the student assignment.
How to add a text comment
Click on anywhere on the student assignment for the feedback comment options to appear
Click on the 'T' icon to add an inline comment (this is best in a white space on the margin of the assignment).
Type into the text box to write directly on the student submission and click away from the text box to automatically 'Save'.
Note: Text comments can be difficult to read if they are added ao an area of an assignment which already has text in it. The text comment is most legible when added to blank areas of the assignment, such as the margin.
To move the text comment, hover your cursor over comment and when a four headed arrow appears, click and drag to another location.
The highlight option allows teachers to select text on the student assignment and provide different colour codes linked to comments. You can also use the highlight option to select text in the assignment and use the strike through option in sections or specific words within the student work, similar to what you may do in a mark up document.
