As an instructor, you will be reviewing and grading assignment submissions once learners completes/submits the assignments for final evaluation. At the time of reviewing assignment submissions, you can provide score, grade and additional feedback/comment, if any. You can also decide when the feedback / comments becomes visible to the learners, so they can refine the assignment further after seeing your feedback/comment and then resubmit the assignment for final evaluation.
