The Student View of Comments on Google Classroom Assignments

One of the things that I've always recommended doing when using a new-to-you web tool in your classroom is to look at the students' perspective as well as your own. Unfortunately, that's not always easy to do. In the case of Google Classroom this can be hard to do if you only have a teacher account and don't have access to a student account. That's probably why lately I have received a lot of questions about what assignments look like to students in Google Classroom. I made the following short video to demonstrate how Google Classroom assignments look to students.

In the video below I demonstrate how to give an assignment, how students view an assignment, how to give feedback on a student's assignment, and what that feedback looks like to a student. My example features a student uploading a picture of a math assignment completed on paper for his teacher to review. The concept in the example can be applied to PDFs and any other document that you have your students complete and return in Google Classroom.
