Grade Comments Show Before Revealing Grade Score

    We are finding that the valuable text feedback we are providing students on assignments is not being read and that some students even find it difficult to access. This is written feedback is of much greater educational value that whatever numeric score can convey. Therefore I propose Blackboard provide a new icon in grade center that shows a student that the instructor has graded the assignment but doesn't show a score. Instead the student clicks on the icon and a popup window appears with the grading comments for the student to read and then click OK to close the pop up. Then the score appears in Blackboard and remains revealed as usual from that point forward.  This is a simple change but could really deliver so much more information easily to the student to help them improve and learn.
