Grading an Assignment:

  1. Click a particular Student’s name from the Ready to Grade tab to open their submission (or click the Enter Grade link if you already know their score.
  2. Grade the Assignment by doing the following:
    1. Numerical Grade - type the Student's grade in the boxes labeled "Score" and "Total" (you can also change the grade in the Progress book/ Gradebook). If you prefer non-numerical grades you can enter them here as well. The numerator and denominator can be filled with numbers and letters, including Pass, Late, Incomplete or N/A
    2. Provide Feedback (optional) - Type your Comments in the text box to the right of your Student's submission and attach a file, link, or library document if necessary. Then click the "Add Comment" button
    3. Select “Save" to submit the grade. Grades will remain editable
    4. When a Student's submission gets graded, you can access it from the Graded or All students tab, since it will no longer appear in the Ready to Grade tab

Note: When a comment and/or grade is provided, students will receive a notification. You can also update students’ numerical grades directly from within the Progress Book/ Gradebook. Assignments that are only assigned to individual students (not to entire groups) will not appear in the Progress Book/ Gradebook. As a workaround, you can grade them using the steps above, then manually add them to the Progress Book.
