Student NOT to see assignment feedback until "returned"
How can teachers edit, highlight and comment in students turned in assignment without them seeing our feedback until we click return.
With the amount of marking we have it can be two weeks from marking the first assignment to the last. Presently as student can see all feedback and comments made by tutors as they happen, this means the owner of the assignments I mark first can have two weeks longer to improve their work than the assignment I mark last. This is not fair and will lead to complaints from students. How can this be corrected.

We need to have comments internally verified in some cases before the assignments are returned to students. The ability to enable or disable comments per assignment would prove to be very beneficial.

Our teachers have the same problem. It takes time - often many days - to correct exercises. It would be nice, if we could turn inn all assignments with the marking and comments at the same time for all students
This is especially important for grading essays. Students are getting a dozen emails notifying them of my comments long before I return the essay. Often I need to calibrate the grades I give across a batch of assignments, and like the original poster indicated, that gives some students more time with the feedback than others.
Please give teachers the option to delay sending feedback comments until the whole assignment is ready to return.
