What is it?

MyFeedback is a report that enables you and your personal tutees to view grades and feedback for assessment activities such as Moodle Assignments, Turnitin Assignments, Workshops and Quizzes across modules in a single-view report.

The report provides links to submissions and any feedback that has been released to students.

Why use it?

The report helps students (supported by their personal tutors) to better understand the variety of feedback they receive, draw ties between different assessments and modules, and allow them to reflect on their feedback to see how they can improve in future assessments. It also allows Tutors to see how their students are progressing within the modules they teach.

Who can use it?

MyFeedback is available to students, personal tutors, course tutors and departmental administrators.

  • Students can view feedback and grades from their assessments across all their UCL Moodle courses. Student help documentation is available from: https://wiki.ucl.ac.uk/display/ELearningStudentSupport/MyFeedback+for+students
  • Personal tutors can see their tutees' full MyFeedback reports across all the modules their students are studying. Note: personal tutors will not be able to link through to assessments on courses they do not have tutor access to.
  • Module tutors and assessors can see MyFeedback reports for their students containing assessment information for any modules they teach and/or assess. They will not see any assessments for modules they do not teach (unless they have been granted tutor access to those Moodle courses).
  • Departmental administrators can see MyFeedback reports for all the Moodle courses within categories where they have been assigned departmental administrator access in Moodle. Categories in Moodle will either be for the entire  department, or might be broken down further into undergraduate and postgraduate modules. Staff requiring this access will need to ask their department's current category level course administrator to assign them this role.

Before I start...

To make the most of MyFeedback, markers need to use Moodle in ways that makes the information visible within the report. Many of these suggestions also make assessment feedback more visible to students generally. Please refer to the MyFeedback guide for Module tutors for further information on how markers can provide feedback that is visible within the report and easily viewed by students.

Note: If deciding between Moodle Assignments and Turnitin Assignment, be aware that Turnitin feedback cannot be shown directly in the MyFeedback report and requires the student to copy and paste this in, so Moodle Assignment feedback is more visible in the report.

How do I access and use MyFeedback?

  • Personal Tutors will see their personal tutees listed in the My tutees block on the bottom, right of the UCL Moodle My home page. To access the report for a personal tutee, click on their name and then from their profile page, under Reports, click My feedback.
    Alternatively you can navigate to the MyFeedback report via the MyFeedback block on your Moodle My home page and click My students to see a list of your personal tutees. Clicking their name from here will load their MyFeedback report.
  • You can navigate to your own MyFeedback report via the MyFeedback block on your Moodle home page.
  • If you are both a student and a tutor, you can view your own report as well as the reports of those you teach or support as a Personal Tutor.

Questions & Answers

Q. Why can't students see their grades and feedback in the MyFeedback report?

A. Only those with access to the Moodle courses in question will be able to check why the grades aren't displaying. Please ask students to speak to their module tutor or teaching administrator.

For further information please refer to the Q&A section of the MyFeedback report miniguide.

Q. Why can't I see my personal tutees in the My students tab of the MyFeedback report or in the My tutees block on the Moodle My home page?

Q. Why is there no My students tab on the MyFeedback report?

A. Both these questions have a single answer. Access to view your personal tutees is automatically setup in UCL Moodle overnight based on the data in Portico. If you cannot see one or more of your personal tutees, or the My students tab is completely missing from the report, then you need to check that Portico has your personal tutees listed.

How to check for (your) personal tutees on Portico:
  1. Visit Portico at: https://evision.ucl.ac.uk/urd/sits.urd/run/siw_lgn
  2. Login with your UCL username and password
  3. Scroll down to the Personal Tutors section and click on the Personal tutees: view link
  4. On the Report Parameters screen enter the Tutor's UPI as prompted and click on the Run report button.
  5. A List of Tutees should be displayed and hence it should be possible to identify any who may be missing or shouldn't perhaps be there. 

Note: If there are missing/excess tutees in Portico, this would explain their absence/presence in MyFeedback reports but Digital Education cannot solve this problem. Tutors need to contact their Departmental Administrator to get Portico data updated. Once updated, MyFeedback reports should display the correct tutees overnight. 

However, if you CAN see personal tutees in Portico but you still can't see them in MyFeedback then please contact Digital Education (email: digi-ed@ucl.ac.uk) including the forename and surname of the personal tutor who can't see their tutees.
