The student grader allows teachers to grade and make changes to a specific student’s score on a specific activity.
Teachers can easily jump from one student to another for easy grading.
Accessing the Student Grader
To access the student grader, click the gradebook icon on a course card.
Select the activities tab and click on an activity that needs grading.
Select a student to start with.
NOTE: Students with a document icon in the status column have submitted this assignment, those with nothing in the status column have not.
This is the student grader page.
Grading with the Student Grader
The student grader is made up of two panels: the student panel and the grading panel
The student panel displays information about the activity.
Under the student's name:
- Activity: click the activity name to view the activity
- Grading period: shows which grading period this activity is assigned to
- Due date: when the activity is/was due
- Submitted: the date in which the activity was submitted by the student.
Three tabs across the top:
1. Content: Shows what the student submitted
2. Activity history: shows date and time the student submitted, status of the activity (whether it has been completed or not), the score they received or, if they haven't received a score yet, it may be blank or might read, "completed, needs grading", how many times the student visited the activity, the time they spent, and who the activity was submitted by.
3. Submission history: When and at what time the student submitted the activity
The grading panel allows you to:
- Give points for each learning outcome associated with this assignment
- Give full credit
- Give no credit
- Clear scores
- Save draft, if you need to take a break while grading, or plan to return later
- Submit score, which will add it to the gradebook and return to the student
- Excuse the assignment, so it does not impact the student's grade
- Allow a retry
- Override complete, if this assignment must be completed before moving on to the next, you can override that requirement, to allow the student to move on.
- Leave student feedback
- Create or use a previously created feedback template
- Return an attachment, for example: a rubric
- Add a private note, that only you and other course teachers can see
Once you are done grading this student's work, you can easily jump to the next student in the top tool bar.
