As an instructor you can now view pending assessment submissions that need to be graded right from your To-Dos section and navigate directly from there to the all-new assignment grading page. The new interface will make it easy for you to grade an assignment and hence save considerable amount of your time.
This article will guide you on:
Viewing pending assessment submissions that are due for grading
1. You will notice a To-Dos icon at the top right corner, clicking it will open up your To-Dos section. To-Dos will be divided into two sections: Ready for Review and Ongoing:
Note: In case all the questions of a quiz are auto-evaluated, then it won’t appear in the To-Dos section because marking/grading would be done automatically as soon as learners make the submissions.
2. Ready for Review section will display three kinds of assessments:
- Assessments whose deadlines have passed
- Assessments with at least one submission from all learners
- Offline assessments for which no scores have been entered
Hence, as an instructor we want you to focus on this section. That’s why the red badge shown in the navigation bar shows the number of assessments that are ready for review.
3. Ongoing section will display all assessments for which learner submissions have been made and need to be graded. Once the deadline has crossed or all learners have made submissions, they become ready for review. The Ongoing section is something you can look at when you have free time, just to see the progress learners are making.
4. You may hide a To-Do from appearing in your Ready for Review section permanently by clicking its Dismiss button.
Note: Once dismissed, that particular assessments will never appear in To-Dos section and you’ll need to go to Materials and access that assessment for grading, so please use it with caution.
Grading submissions from your To-Dos section
1. In both the sections, you will notice a label right below the assessment name as 2 yet to grade or 1 yet to grade, this label indicates the number of learners who have made the submissions and their submissions are pending for review i.e. as an instructor, you can click this label to go to View Submissions page of that assessment to grade learner’s submission from your To-Dos section directly. Isn’t that convenient!
