    The submission from the first student listed in your roster will display, along with tools for annotating the student’s paper and space to provide a score and feedback to the learner. Instructors can change scores and add more feedback at any time by accessing this page.

Clicking the arrows to either side of that student’s name will allow you to advance to the submission of the next student in the list. Additionally, instructors can choose a specific student, assignment, or submission attempt by using the Jump To feature, which opens drop-down menus at the top of the page to narrow the search.
