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.
