Reviewing Flagged Comments in Eval25

Comment Redaction lets an Instructor, Academic Administrator, or Administrator flag a student evaluation comment, for example, one that is offensive or untrue, and place it into the Comment Redaction report where it can be determined if the comment should be redacted or retained. 

A note on the comment can be saved to record the reasoning behind a decision. Redacted comments will be hidden from other reports, while retained comments are not.
