Assignment settings

This article is for Instructors. Click here for the student article.

The Assignment Settings panel is where you set permissions and define how your Assignment will appear to your students.  On the dashboard, the darkened icons on the right side of the Assignment header show which settings are currently enabled.  Clicking the "View Instructions" button will also let you preview any instructions, attachments, or stimulus media (except on single attempt assignments).

Assignment Name - The title of the Assignment.

Assignment Type - This defines the structure of the Assignment:  Standard, Stimulus, or Comment Only.  For more details, see Assignment Types. (Please note that the Assignment Type can't be changed after videos have been submitted.)

Recording & Feedback Privacy - Determines if students can see others' recordings and/or feedback.  Defaults to Private.

  • Private - Recordings and feedback are only visible to the Presenter and Instructors/Reviewers.
  • Closed Peer Review - Peers see and critique others' recordings, but their feedback is only visible to the Presenter and Instructors/Reviewers.  (formerly Peer Critique)
  • Open Peer Review - Peers see and critique others' recordings, and can see everyone's feedback on all submissions.  (formerly Peer Critique and All Comments are Public)

Source media - This setting is required on Stimulus and Comment Only assignments.  Change the drop-down to "Instructor Selected" to upload, record, or add a file from your Library. If you would like students to submit and respond to their own source media, change the drop-down to "Presenter Selected." For more information, see Stimulus Assignments.

Availability Date - The date the Assignment will become visible to students. If no date is selected, the Assignment is available immediately.  Please note that if you are using GoReact in an LMS (Canvas, Blackboard, etc.) then this setting is hidden (you will just set this in your LMS instead).

Due Date - The date the Assignment is due. GoReact will still allow submissions after the due date, but the submission date will be shown in red to indicate that it was late.  Please note that if you are using GoReact in an LMS (Canvas, Blackboard, etc.) then this setting is hidden (you will just set this in your LMS instead).

Grading & Evaluation - An assignment can be ungraded, or you can use either points possible or an instructor rubric for scoring.  Please note that if you are using GoReact in an LMS (Canvas, Blackboard, etc.), this must match the value in the LMS in order for grade passback to work correctly.

  • Allow reviewer access - When using a rubric, you can select whether you want to allow reviewers in your course to have access to your graded rubrics.

Group Recording Session - This setting is available only on Standard assignments.  Allows up to nine presenters to join a single recording session.  For more information, see Group recording assignments.

Allow live review (formerly live event) - Instructors and Reviewers can provide feedback live at the time of recording.  For more information, see Live review assignments.

OneAttempt.png Single recording attempt (test) - Restricts students to only one submission for the Assignment.  For more information, see Test assignments.

Disable source video closed captions - This setting is only available on Stimulus and Comment Only assignments.  GoReact will not generate or display real-time closed captions for this source media.

Slideshow.png Presenter slides - This setting is available only on Standard assignments.  Slide Sync™ allows students to add PDF slides to their video.  These slides will be shown side-by-side with the video and can be timed to automatically advance during playback.
