      Description

      PURPOSE

      Sometimes instructors may accidentally overwrite comments, such as a manual comment added in Gradebook and then an instructor comment added in an attached assignment might overwrite it, Or perhaps a Teaching Assistant might accidentally add a comment for the wrong student, etc. Wouldn't it be nice to see a saved log of all comments for a given student?  This would provide accountability for comments as well as a security blanket to go back and copy/paste an accidentally deleted comment.

      REQUEST

      Please add a "Comment Log" as an option for each student for every gradebook item.  I can see two possibilities. There may be more and I welcome community feedback!

      • OPTION 1: Add a comment history below the text entry field on the "Add/Edit Comments" modal window.  This could include date/time, person, and comment ordered newest at the top and oldest at the bottom.
      • OPTION 2: Add a new drop-down menu option called "Comment Log" that would function like the current "Grade Log." It would list date/time, person, and the text of the various comments, ordered newest to oldest.
      • OPTION 3: The Teaching and Learning working group on April 15, 2020 suggests consolidating both grades and comments into the Grade Log. See comment thread. This might involve a label change in the Gradebook from "Grade Log" to "Grade/Comment Log."

      Thank you for considering this feature request.
