Students viewing feedback before teacher hits "return"

New Contributor



I have just tested the functionality and as some other people have identified, students can view feedback as and when teachers add comments or highlight the attached documents in an assignment.  


As a teacher, there are times when this is okay, but other times when it would make Teams unsuitable.  When students submit exams or coursework teachers need the ability to edit and provide feedback within the document (by adding comments, or highlighting)  in draft mode, before it is visible to the students.


Since this has been an identified issue since 2018, as far as I can see from previous comments, I was hoping that there is a workaround or a setting that can be applied to achieve this.


Please confirm.


Best wishes,
