Verifier Question in Email
Is it okay to approve items submitted as an attachment?
Yes, if you are able to open the attachment. Participants are not prompted to upload items as an attachment. If the participant does upload items and you can open them, it is okay to verify. The capstone must have all the requirements regardless of submission method to be approved.
Things to Remember as you are verifying...
- Comment on the artifacts specifically.
"I found your discussion of feedback tools particularly insightful. The audio tool Vocaroo is an effective and user-friendly tool for both instructors and students alike."
- Select quotes from the blog to include in your feedback.

- Highlight the participants strengths or interests that you glean from their posts.
"Your outstanding reflection on the use of screen capture tools suggests that you are comfortable using this essential tool to improve student success."
* It's okay to have stock responses ready but do expound by adding personalized notes within your prepared commentary.
