Yes, students get notified about new feedback when they sign in!
If you've left students feedback in CS Discoveries or CS Principles, they will see a banner telling them they have new feedback from their teacher when they log in to Code.org. This banner appears on Course and Unit Overview Pages, and on the Student Homepage, and it will be visible until students have viewed the feedback.
Students can click on the "View feedback" button in the banner to view the feedback on the Teacher Feedback page.
This page will contain all the feedback the student has received from their teacher.
- New, unread feedback appears with a white background while older feedback has a grey background.
- Students can see both free-form teacher feedback and mini-rubric evaluations (where relevant) from the teacher feedback page.
- Students can click on the header of the feedback entry to view the full feedback on the level itself.
If students don’t have any new feedback but still want to revisit their older teacher feedback, they can do so from the Student Homepage (have students look for the "Review Feedback" box at the bottom of their "My Courses" section). They can also go directly to studio.code.org/feedback to view this page.
