So you just got one of our fancy emails telling you that you have an activity ready for grading? Here's how to do it.
First, go to your classroom Gradebook and set the filter for the "View" drop-down menu to read "Individual Scores."
All those columns at the top let you filter even more! You can type in a student name or activity name or sort by status.
Once you've located the activity that needs grading, just click on the hyperlink/name of the activity. This will open up a new tab where you will see the following:
- The work submitted by the student (in the box below the activity description - it shows up as a link!)
- A rubric for you to use as a guideline when you’re grading
- An answer key that includes answers (where relevant) and other tips for grading
Enter a grade into the grading box and click "Submit Grade." Once you do, you'll see a little green checkmark to let you know that you did it right. Don't worry if it still says "Needs Grading"—that'll update when you reload the page!
Once you enter a grade, click "Submit Grade," and if you enter a comment, click "Update Comment," which will add the comment to Gradebook for everyone's perusal.
