The structured feedback plugin enables teachers to define any number of criteria on which to provide individual feedback comments for a student's assignment submission. Criteria are configured in a dedicated 'Feedback criteria' section of the standard assignment config form, and the plugin is enable/disabled automatically depending on whether any criteria have been defined.

The configured 'criteria set' can then be saved for easy reuse in other assignments. Given the appropriate permissions the teacher can also choose to share their saved criteria sets with other teachers within the same Moodle site. A simple AJAX interface is provided for teachers to manage their saved criteria sets, all accessed from within the assignment config form.

    Would this plugin be available for feedback on survey questions as well?

    This is an assignment sub-plugin so I'm afraid it only works for assignment activities.

    Is there any chance that this plugin will be updated for Moodle 3.5?

    Hi Clinton, the plugin supports Moodle 3.5 already -- I'd just forgotten to update this record (done that now) -- we're using it here with 3.5.1 and it works fine. Thanks for the reminder. smile

    Hi, is there a way to download the feedback comments for students as an excel? For example:

    Student name Feedback criteria 1 comments Feedback criteria 2 comments Feedback criteria 3 comments

    Hi Kathryn, currently there is no way to do this, but I could build in support for pushing the comments to the gradebook, which would enable you to download them via a gradebook export.

    Hi Tony, that would be great if you can do that!

    I am using the assignment activity for moderation, so a grade is not necessary. Each school will upload assignments which are assessed by a moderator who gives written feedback based on each criteria. This is why using your plugin would be really helpful, so we can see a list of all the schools and the feedback comments under each criteria

    Thanks,
    Kathryn

    Hello, i've installed fine, but when I edit the settings of an assignment activity there are two new sub sections (1) Feedback Criteria and (2) Feedback Settings. Feedback settings is empty when you expand it? Is this expected behaviour?

    Hi Sarah, it wasn't expected but I can now see how it could happen.

    Because this plugin adds a separate section for its own settings, the 'Feedback settings' section is also added to contain the settings for any subsequent feedback plugins. However, if those subsequent plugins don't have any settings associated with them, the section will be empty. To overcome this you could make the Structured feedback plugin the last one, by moving it to the bottom of the list at "Site administration -> Plugins -> Activity modules ->Assignment -> Feedback plugins -> Manage assignment feedback plugins" (/mod/assign/adminmanageplugins.php?subtype=assignfeedback). That way, the extra section won't be added to the form at all.

    Hope this helps.
    Tony
