      Description

      FEATURE REQUEST:

      The formatting and the instruction text for the "Show settings for sending feedback" and "Select user(s) and Allow Resubmission" can be improved.

      How to get there:

      1. Create an assignment as an instructor.
      2. Click "View Submissions" or "Grade" below the assignment title.
      3. On the "Submissions" page for the assignments, look for the accordion headings "Show settings for sending feedback" and "Select User(s) and Allow Resubmission."

      Items to consider:

      • Title Case or First Word capitalization?
        • Be consistent with the capitalization choice. Standardize on either "Title Case" or "First word" capitalization. Align with whatever styleguide is developing for all Sakai tools. 
      • Improve the heading language.
        • One heading starts with "Show settings" and the other starts with "Select user(s)." For both options, instructors need to "Select user(s)" to use the features.  Also, for both options, instructors need to click the accordion heading to "show" the settings.
        • SUGGESTION 1: Change "Show settings for sending feedback" to something like "Send feedback to multiple students"
        • SUGGESTION 2: Change "Select User(s) and Allow Resubmission" to something like "Set resubmission options for multiple students"
      • Improve the instruction formatting.
        • The first instruction for both "Show settings for sending feedback" and "Select User(s) and Allow Resubmission" uses a blue color that is often used for links. Since this is instruction text and not a link, this can be confusing. Perhaps use a heading for "Instructions" (similar to "Feedback Options" in the "Show settings for sending feedback" area) and then follow with the instruction text as normal text, not blue text?
      • Improve the instruction text.
        • "Show settings for sending feedback"
          • The instructions currently say, "Select user(s) and write feedback in text area below:"
          • Perhaps a more verbose instruction will help? Consider something like, "To add instructor feedback comments to one, multiple, or all users, select the desired user(s) from the table below. Write the feedback you wish to share in the following text box. Choose any other options below and then click "Update" to save.
        • "Select User(s) and Allow Resubmission"
          • The instructions currently say, "Select user(s) and apply the resubmission settings."
          • While this feature may be more obvious to instructors, you can consider a bit more context, such as, "To adjust the resubmission options for one, multiple, or all users, select the desired user(s) from the table below. Adjust the resubmission number and date. Click "Update" to save.

      Thank you for considering this feature request.
