Brightspace: Locate and Review Feedback


This article describes how students can find and assess feedback from instructors within their Brightspace course.


  1. First, on the navbar, click My Progress and then select Grades from the left menu.
  2. Next, each unit will contain items (or assignments) completed. Expand the number of graded items to view each assignment.
    The Grades Progress page is displayed showing arrows pointing to My Progress in the navbar, the Grades option in the left menu and another pointing to the 4 Items drop-down within the Unit 3 Graded Items list.
  3. At this point, expand Feedback and review the comments. Additionally, there may be feedback in the assignment itself. If this is the case, tap “View Inline Feedback” to view a PDF of the assignment or tap “View Graded Rubric” to see how the assignment was graded.
    The Graded Items module in the Grades page shows arrows pointing to the Unit 3 Assessment Feedback drop-down. It also shows the expanded text to reveal feedback text as well as two links, one to the inline feedback and another to view graded rubric.
    • If “View Inline Feedback” is selected, a PDF containing the assignment as well as teacher comments will be displayed.
      A blurred out portion of a PDF scanned image of an assignment is shown with an arrow pointing to a notes icon. The notes are displayed as feedback for students to review.
    • If “View Graded Rubric” is selected, a new window will open to reveal how points were earned as well as any additional feedback.
      An example rubric is shown with the page scrolled down to the bottom. The overall score is selected, in this example it is Proficient.

Limited Course Capacity

We’re sorry to inform you that we have reached capacity for several of our Semester 1 and Trimester 1 courses. You’ll notice when attempting to enroll students in our Student Learning Portal that some courses are unavailable. While we are no longer accepting new enrollments for these courses at this time, many courses continue to remain open for enrollment.

With many students across the state 100% remote, demand for our online courses is greater than ever before. Because every course we offer is taught by a Michigan-certified teacher, this high volume of enrollments has created capacity issues for our teachers who provide each and every student with individual feedback.

While the Michigan Virtual team anticipated and planned for significant increases in student enrollments this Fall, the increased demand we’ve experienced has been unprecedented. As a result, we are taking steps to hire even more part-and full-time teachers to support larger numbers of student enrollments for Semester 2 as well as for Trimester 2 and 3. 

For schools that still need online learning options this year, please fill out the form at the bottom of our virtual pathways page to meet with someone to discuss other solutions. While some of our teacher-led courses are full, we may still have the capacity to help you in upcoming terms or can discuss timing to implement a whole-school or collaborative program in which local teachers from your school/district use our online course content to teach students. We also have free course content and resources available for you to use.

We know this is an incredibly stressful time for all, and we’re sorry if the courses you’re looking for are unavailable. We never want to turn away a student who wants to learn from us. Our top concern, however, is student success, and we have a policy to not take on additional enrollments if we cannot guarantee that all students will have a quality online learning experience. 

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate the unusually high volume of enrollments we are receiving.
