The Spotlight feature allows you to showcase exceptional creations and written evaluations done by your students to the rest of the class. Spotlighting allows students to have equitable access to viewing exemplary work so that they can better understand what’s expected of them. Spotlighted creations can also serve as great additions to study guides, depending on the activity type.

When you spotlight, the anonymity of the author of the creation and/or evaluation is preserved. The student whose work is being spotlighted will be sent a congratulatory email notification.

TIP: You may want to sort your activity’s student list based on highest scores to easily find the best creations to spotlight.
