January 31, 2017 Kelly Basara

Users are able to grade essays online to include personalized comments to each Exam Taker's response. Basic Grading will allow anyone with access to the assessment to grade all Exam Taker's responses for a particular question. 


Basic Grading of Essays

1) Navigate to the Assessments tab within your Course.

2) Select a posted assessment.

3) Go to the Grading sub-tab within the assessment. 

4) On the Questions Requiring Grading page, depending on which view is selected, you will see the following:

  • View: Questions - A list of all essay questions within the assessment.

  • View: Students - A list of all Exam Takers who submitted their essay responses for this assessment.

A User can add Grader Notes if desired. Type the note in the field provided and click Add Note once finished. All notes will be saved and listed with the date/time, as shown below, with options to Edit or Delete any notes.
