Grade Assignment

  1. In the left Tool List of your site, select Assignments.
  2. Underneath the assignment you wish to grade, select Grade.
  3. You will see a list of student names and a Status column to the right of the names. If a student has submitted the assignment, the Status column will say Ungraded. Students who have not yet submitted their assignments will have No Submission in the Status column. Select the Participant's name to begin grading their submission.
  4. Assign the student a Grade according to the grade scale you selected. You will see the submitted work of the student either in a text box or as an attachment. 
  5. In the Instructor Summary Comments text box, make comments as necessary. You can also type comments into the student’s submitted text. You can insert comments into the student's assignment submission text box, by surrounding the comments with double curly braces, {{like this}}, the comments will appear red to the student.

When you release comments in the students assignment submission text box, they will not appear in your view of the assignment grading screen, only in the student's.

  1. (Optional) You may add an attachment, such as a Word document, to return with the grade.
  2. (Optional) Allow Resubmission: Select the check box to allow the student to resubmit the work if changes are required. You will have the option to add an Accept Until Date for the resubmitted work. You are able to allow multiple assignment submissions for the entire site when you create the assignment. This option grants the ability to resubmit an assignment on a student-by-student case.
  3. Select Save and Release to Student to send the grade and comments to the student or select Save and Don't Release to Student to save your changes without releasing to the student.
