   Students have the ability to send comments when they submit an assignment.  Unfortunately, the only way you know they have submitted a comment is to go through each individual student's assignments.  It would be great if there could be a "flag" , or some type of notification, in the overall gradebook to let the teacher know that a comment has been submitted.

    I agree entirely. Most of my students miss the comments and the reassignments because the reassignment box is below the window viewing area and they forget to scroll down. They also don't go look at a graded assignment past what the number says. They are much less tech savvy than they get credit for and need information much more "in-their-face'.

    Yes I agree. There needs to be more clarity with communication with students for better feedback.

    In Smartmusic classic, when the teacher leaves a comment on a graded assignment, there is a GREEN BUTTON in the students account on the graded assignment.  This is INVALUABLE because it tells the student that the teacher left a comment.  Why else would the student go back into a graded assignment??  I feel that I am wasting hours of time leaving comments on graded assignments when they have no idea that I wrote a comment.

    I would love an option to get an e-mail notification when one of my students leaves a submission comment.  I frequently don't see the comments until more time has passed than should be allowed to go by.

    There needs to be some sort of notification- a color change or a red corner or something.  I use SmartMusic as a practice tool for 320 students and I don't check every single assignment- so I need a quick visual for the comments in the gradebook.
