When I review student assessment scores in SmartMusic, I find it helpful to be able to leave feedback on the same screen. This is a great feature, allowing the students to view their assessment and my feedback at the same time, rather than clicking back and forth between emails and the SmartMusic screen. However, I am noticing that none of my students realize that this feedback is there.
It would be great if SmartMusic would send a generic alert email to students, notifying them that there is a new comment on one of their submissions and including a link to the assignment. This way, students have a reminder to check for feedback and a quick way to get to that feedback as well. I think this would make SmartMusic an even better tool for providing teaching opportunities.
