Grading

Grading an Activity

  1. Navigate to the class whose Activity you want to grade.
  2. Find and click the Activity on the classes feed to open it.
  3. Select a student from the list to start grading their assignment.

The Grading Widget

When viewing a student's Activity you will see a numbered list to the right of the Activity.  Any item that is in green has already been graded.  Any item that is yellow still needs to be graded.  Click any yellow number to navigate directly to that question and start grading.

Auto vs. Manual

Many questions types, such as Multiple Choice and Short Answer, will be auto graded when a student turns in an assignment.

Question types, such as Free Response, will require you to grade the question manually. 

Feedback

To the right of every question is a Feedback button.  Click this to give the student feedback on any question you'd like. 

Returning an Activity

Once you've completed grading an Activity, click the Return button.  This will allow the student to see how that did on their Activity.  It will also enter their grade into your Gradebook and add their progress to the Activity Overview.

Collecting an Activity

Students will be able to work on their Activity until they turn it in or until you collect it.  To collect an Activity:

  2. Select all the students whose Activity you would like to collect.
  3. Click the three dots next to the Return button at the top of the student list.

Activity Overview

After you have graded and returned the Activity to your students you can click on the Overview tab.  This will give you a sense of your classes understanding as a whole.  You can see a distribution of the grades as well as how the class did on any individual question.
