Marking/grading student activities

When reviewing student work for a particular activity, I would like to be able to mark a student's activity, either approve it, or send it back via draft, and then move on to the next student.  Currently, after I mark one student's work, the program takes me to the journal.  This means I have to locate the activity I am grading each time I grade one student's work.  Please, please, fix this!

  • Yup, I agree. It really breaks the workflow. I think the issue is a simple solution related to the redirect code. However, I do notice that the activities do not exist at their own URL, but are instead a pop-up box above the activity feed. Perhaps it won't be that simple to fix, but this is very important to us at our school.

  • I am 100% with you on this one. It is the biggest grumble my team have when using Seesaw. Student feedback is so much more meaningful when we edit the activity itself: pointing out successes and areas for improvement. As teachers don't have indefinite time to navigate through to get to the next pupil's post we often resort to trying to express our feedback in the comment box - this can lead to student confusion about exactly what they need to improve and where exactly they have succeeded. Please Seesaw? 🥺🙏

  • I agree, It would be nice if it returned you to the folder you were grading from as well.

  • I thought it was just me not knowing how to grade correctly!  I agree with you all that it is a pain but at least I'm in the same boat.  Come on, SeeSaw!

  • I agree 100%.

    This is a nightmare.

    I am going to start just putting comments on work and not editing anything because if you open it to EDIT it,.. then close it... as you said....

    the activity and all the other activities you were wanting to review/grade close.

    Then you have to go find everything again.

     

    NIGHTMARE!!!

  • We need this fixed since we using Seesaw as our learning management system in our district. It takes SO much time to have to navigate this way. I give up after awhile.

  • This is definitely adding so much more time to marking work.  It's all so time consuming as it is - that this adds more frustration.  How can we know if Seesaw is working on this or not?

  • Oh certainly they aren't...Seesaw is making BANK right now with distance learning and mostly they don't care that their product is garbage.  


    Here's an accurate picture of Seesaw's leaders right now:

  • Yes, please fix this ASAP!!! It is making it take SO MUCH longer to grade!! This should be placed at the top of the list for teachers! I absolutely love Seesaw! However, this is a major fault right now and is adding a lot of unnecessary time. I hope you will remedy this soon! Thank you!

  • Agree! I'm just adding this comment in case it helps get this noticed :) Once I am in the review an activity section, and go into edit mode for one student's activity, I want to be able to click next student and still be in edit mode. As mentioned above, I just leave comments in the comment line a lot of the time, but the editing option is truly a better option to give student feedback. Thank you!

  • If you have the option to mark work from an iPad, then it keeps you inside of that activity so that you can go straight to the next student.  It does NOT generally kick you back to the journal when working on an iPad.

  • Could not agree more - in reflection meetings, this issue is the common and number 1 compliant/annoyance among staff with seesaw. 

    For homeroom teachers who are providing feedback on several subject areas with 25 students - this amounts to a obscene amount of clicking.
