KB0184 – Releasing Comments & Marks to the Portal

This tutorial will show you how to release Comments and Marks to the Portal. Note that both are released in the one action to the portal, however the girls will only see comments in the portal until they submit a reflection through their portal, which will automatically make their marks visible to them.


1. From the ‘Classic’ menu, drop down learning and click ‘Markbook’.

2. Locate and click on the appropriate course in the list, then click on ‘Show Marks’ (red arrow below).

3. Click on the cog icon (examples indicated with red arrows below) above the task you wish to release comments and marks for.

n.b. you can ‘un-release’ the marks by re-ticking this box and saving!
