How do I use Drafts?

To save work as a Draft, have students choose the Draft option instead of choosing the green check:

Drafts appear in the student’s journal feed with a yellow banner, indicating that the post is a Draft.

Only the student who created the Draft and their teacher are able to view the Draft. If you want to edit the item tap Show Draft > [...] > Edit Item.

How do I Send Back Drafts?

Create powerful feedback loops between teacher and student with Send Back Draft. Turn any piece of student work into a draft, so students can review and improve their work prior to posting to their journal. In the approval queue, tap 'Send Back' to send student work back to the student.

Teachers can also use the comment tool to leave feedback on work in progress.

With a comment, students can review specific feedback from their teacher. If you do not want the comment on the final post, you will need to delete the comment.
