To upload feedback files you will need to zip them first AND they must have the correct naming convention (all files starting with FAN_ for example demo1234_feedback.docx). The zip package should only contain feedback files that you want returned to students. All feedback files within a .zip package will be returned to the student regardless of whether they have been changed since downloading. Therefore, delete any unwanted feedback files from the zip package being returned to FLO.

Any feedback files with the same name will overwrite any existing files. Do not include the grading worksheet in this zip. Uploading the grading worksheet is a separate process (instructions below).

If uploading a feedback file or marked assignment for a single student, it is not necessary to zip the file first.

To create the zip file:

  1. Select the files you wish to upload

  2. Right-click on one of the files and choose Send to, then Compressed (zipped) folder. The zipped folder will by default use the name of one of the students' files. You can rename this if you wish

Upload a feedback file for a single student (eg late submission)

Sometimes, primarily in the case of late submissions, it may be necessary to grade a small number of assignments after or out-of-step with the bulk of other assignments. Feedback files and marked assignments are typically uploaded in bulk as a zipped file in the View/grade all submissions display. However, a single feedback form or marked assignment need not be zipped, and can instead by uploaded via the individual marking form.

  1. Click the assignment activity and click View all submissions

  2. Locate the student for whom you would like to upload a feedback file

  3. Click the Grade button beside the student's name

  4. Scroll down until you see the Feedback files upload field
    feedback files box

  5. Upload your feedback file by dragging and dropping it into the field, or browse for the file by clicking the Add buttonadd file

  6. Click Save changes
