    The Comments feature allows students to communicate with their teachers through Show My Homework. Your teacher will be able to see the comments you leave for them and your teacher will be able to leave comments for you.

    Although your parent will be able to see comments left by both of you, they will not be able to leave comments themselves. No other students will be able to see your comments.

    Leave a comment in the browser

    Comments can only be left on the homework task itself, so you will need to locate the homework task first. You can locate the task by finding it on your To-do list, your Homework calendar, or by searching for it by name in the top right-hand search bar. 

    Once you've selected the homework task you would like to comment on, click the Results tab and type your comment in the text box. When you've submitted your comment by clicking Post comment, your teacher will be be notified of this comment in their account under the notifications button. If they have push notifications enabled on the app, they will be notified by push notification as well.

    You can also leave a comment for your teacher on your Show My Homework app by tapping the text box at the bottom of the homework description screen. Any comments left by your or your teacher will also appear on this screen under Activity.

    When your teacher leaves a comment for you, you will be notified in your account under the notice button. Click on the notice button to view all of your notifications. When you click on a comment notice, you will be taken to the Assess page where the comment left by your student is displayed. You can reply to the comment by simply adding another comment.

    If you have push notifications enabled on the app, you will also be notified of teacher comments via push notification. 
     

    Deleting Comments

    As a student, you are unable to delete comments you have left your teacher. If you made a mistake on a previous comment, you can leave another comment for your teacher with the correct information.
