Is a reflection included when the item, to which the reflection is attached, is submitted in an assignment?

Yes, an item that is attached to a reflection is always included. Also with a submission.

Will a comment be visible to a lecturer if the document is submitted in an assignment?

All comments, assignments and reflections that are attachement to an item, at the moment that it is submitted to a course assignment, are visible to a lecturer after submission.

If you submit an item in an assignment, and upload it back to the ePortfolio after receiving feedback, does it overwrite the previous item?

No, the original document remains intact. If an item with feedback from a course is sent to the portfolio, you get the chance to give it a new name. If you give it an identical name, you still have two separate items with the same name.

I want to attach a rubric to an item in my ePortfolio, but I do not see the correct rubric, how is that possible?

There are multiple answers possible to this question:

  1. The rubric has not yet been created in the course.
  2. You navigated to the ePortfolio via the Brightspace Homepage and not via the course where the rubric is located. How do I link a rubric to an item in my ePortfolio.
  3. You want to link the rubric to the item via the ePortfolio tab. Always link a course rubric via the tab My Items. Have you accidentally linked a rubric via the ePortfolio tab, but do you want to link a course rubric? Remove the rubric from the item, log out from Brightspace, close the browser and then start again.

How do I set up a quiz so that the results can be added to the ePortfolio?

  1. When creating or editing the quiz, click the Assessment tab.
