What is the PostEm tool?

Updated on

Instructors can use the PostEm tool to upload and distribute a comma-delimited (CSV) spreadsheet to present individual feedback and/or grades to students. Instructors can upload as many feedback files as they want. Students only see their own individual feedback and/or grades.

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 class attendance records from a spreadsheet file.

PostEm CSV files must follow a particular format:

  • The first column of the spreadsheet must contain the student usernames.
  • The first row must contain column headings.

Note: The PostEm tool does not interact with the Gradebook.

To access this tool, select PostEm from the site Tool Menu.
