LIVETEXT FAQs FOR FACULTY

www.livetext.com


There are two options for viewing a student’s portfolio. The first option is if a student selected to Share their document with you. When a document is “Shared” you will always see the current version but you are unable to assess it online or add comments. The second option is if a student chose to Send for Review. This option allows the reviewer to see the document as it was when the student selects the Send for Review button. This is useful if there is a submission deadline. Reviewers are able to add comments or use assessment documents as explained below.
