We are confused about how the gradebook works.
1. We use Online Text Assignments
2. We use essays in the Lesson Module.
3. We uses graded forums.
The expectation of the teachers is that when a comment field in the gradebook is used and the teacher makes a comment there, that it is entered into the appropriate activity comment field just as if the teacher had mde the comment in the activity itself. In other words that the comment field in the gradebook and the comment field in the activity are somehow linked.
Some teachers say that it is not working. That the comments made in the gradebook don't end up in the activity itself. And this disturbs them.
I feel the most students are fine with clicking the grades link and seeing their portion of the gradebook and being able to read the grade and the comment that is there.
Can you tell me how the gradebook is supposed to work when used to grade essays in the Lesson Module, Teachers comments for Online Text Assignments and even forums that are gradeable?
