Viewing Submissions


Revision Assistant allows you to view each step of a student’s writing process in addition to the final draft.  Our system saves a draft every time the student requests a Signal Check. The rubric ratings the essay received appears above that draft and comments appear in-line.  Click the links below or continue reading for the directions and helpful hints about viewing students' writing on a Signal Check Assignment.

    This will bring you to the Assignment Overview page.

Using the Student Progress Page

    This will bring you to the Student Progress page. Here's how to interpret what you'll see on this page.
If you see... It means...

Color-coded scores

These are the latest Signal Check scores your student received for each rubric trait. Because this is a Signal Check assignment, your student has also seen these scores.
Scores and teal checks Your student wrote an essay and turned in it. 
Only scores (no checks) Your student requested a Signal Check and is still working. A check next to scores will appear and then disappear if a student turns in work but continues to write.
No scores or checks Your student hasn't started working  OR  they haven't gotten a Signal Check yet.
"Needs Review" Your student requested a Signal Check  OR  turned in work that could not be scored.



  1. To see a student's turned in work or latest draft, just click the student's name.


Note: You will still be able to see a student's latest draft even if they haven't turned it in yet!
