What is the Post'Em tool?
The PostEm tool provides a convenient mechanism to post comments and grades for those instructors that regularly use Excel spreadsheet files to calculate grades. You might also use it to post mid-semester course grades from a spreadsheet file.
Instructors can upload as many feedback files as they want. Students only see their own individual feedback and/or grades.
PostEm CSV files must follow a particular format:
- The first column of the spreadsheet must contain the students' UVa computing IDs.
- The first row must contain headings.
Note: For instructions on how to add this or any other tool to your site, see How do I add tools to my site?
To access this tool, select Post'Em from the Tool Menu in your site.
Example of Midterm Grade feedback.
Pictured above is a student's view of their feedback in the Post'Em tool. No other students' information is displayed.
As the instructor, you can see when a student has last checked their feedback. The names of students who have not checked the uploaded file will appear in bold, red text.
