Custom Feedback with Classroom’s Comment Bank

As I attended CUE a couple of weeks ago, I was surprised to see how many teachers did not know about an amazing tool that exists within Google Classroom: the Comment Bank! The Comment Bank in Google Classroom is an easy way to provide students with personalized feedback AND switch quickly between student assignments. Bonus: You can review any assignments in any file type!

While this is primarily a tool that is used by teachers for students, don’t forget that these same practices can be used by instructional coaches and administrators. I’ve known many sites that use Google Classroom as a way to connect and share information with their staff. On PD days, teachers could be assigned an assignment or an activity to work on together, something relevant to their school and teaching practices, and instructional coaches or administrators could use the comment bank to ask questions or leave comments on their assignment.

  1. One great feature of the comment bank is that in addition to copying the comment a shortcut is to highlight, click comment box and type # and a key word in the comment box and it will list your comments with that key word. If a teacher has an assignment with a certain set of comments related we start the comments with a number, say 2, and then type #2 and it will list all those comments for fast feedback.

  2. Great post i must say and thanks for the information. Education is definitely a sticky subject. However, is still among the leading topics of our time. I appreciate your post and look forward to more.
