To Grade the Assessment

Hover over a student and click Grade (or Regrade if the assessment has already been graded).

For Ungraded Questions (questions that need manual scoring):

  • Ungraded questions will appear at the top of the page. Once they have been graded, they will move back to their respective position on the assessment.
  • If an Item has two questions in it, and one involves manually scoring, the entire Item moves to the top of the page.
  • Click into each box to add a score and click Save.
  • Once all ungraded questions have been graded, the assessment will revert back to listing the Items in numerical order.

For Auto-Scored questions:

  • Questions that were set to auto-score will already have grades. You can manually change the score of any auto-scored questions by clicking in the box with the score. See the image below:
  • The question above was set to score as an "Exact Match" - meaning that the student will earn the points only if they choose all correct answers
  • The score of 0 can be manually changed to, for example, a 0.5, since the student did choose two of the three correct answers. 
  • This grading process is based on teacher preference. To learn more about scoring methods, such as Exact Match, click here.

  • Step 1: Navigate to the top of the assessment.
  • Step 2: Click inside the box labeled Adjustments.
  • Step 3: Click the up or down arrows to add or take away points, OR type in the adjustment you'd like. See the clip below:
