Adding files as evidence to PebblePad resources

Note - the way capabilities look to learners changed on 28th June 2021. While the general process is the same, this may not match the way this looks in guidance you have been given in the past. The process below replaces the "rosette icons" you may be used to.

Anywhere on a Template or Workbook where you see the "+Add..." is somewhere you can add evidence, which can another PebblePad asset, or a file of any format.

For example, if the '+Add...' icon is next to an element asking about your knowledge of a particular topic, you may evidence this by attaching a document, image, video or audio recording, or a reflection you have written in PebblePad, that demonstrates your knowledge.

The colour of the rosette denotes whether you feel this is not evidenced, partially evidenced, or fully evidenced.

To add evidence:

  1. Click on the '+Add...' icon
  2. Click on 'Add evidence'

  1. Click 'Add an asset' to add a file. (You can also select 'Add text only' to type a create a new text-only file at this point)

A list of files in your Asset Store will appear, or click 'Upload new' to directly upload a new file from your computer.

Depending how your tutors have set up the Workbook or Template, you may now be asked to add justification, which is a brief text description of why this file or asset meets the criteria you are being asked to evidence. If you are unsure what level of detail to put here, ask your tutor for advice.

If you click this you will see a summary of the files and their justifications, and will be able to mark this criteria as 'complete' if you feel the files you have uploaded have adequately met the criteria.

Note: Always check with your tutors, if unsure, which types of evidence they are happy to accept, and how many files they want you to upload. Think about the files sizes of files you upload, and use standard file formats so your tutor will be able to open your files if necessary.

Also note there is a 500MB filesize limit on individual files.
