Grading Assignment Submissions

As an instructor, you will be reviewing and grading assignment submissions once learners completes/submits the assignments for final evaluation. At the time of reviewing assignment submissions, you can provide score, grade and additional feedback/comment, if any. You also when the feedback / comments becomes visible to the learners, so they can refine the assignment further after seeing your feedback/comment and then resubmit the assignment for final evaluation.

This article will guide you on:

Viewing assignment submissions listing page

1. On the home page, hover your cursor over the required classroom and click Materials.

2. Click View attempts of the required assignment.

Information regarding the number of learner(s) who have attempted the assignment will be shown out of the total number of learners with whom the assignment was shared with. You will also see the number of attempts which are pending for review.

3. This table shows the list of all the learners along with their submissions status.

Viewing learners' attempts

1. Access assignment submissions listing page of the required assignment.

2. Click View Attempts link shown next to the learner name to view the submission made by that learner.

The number of attempts made by the learners will be mentioned in parenthesis, in case learner have made more than one attempt for the assignment (for assignments in which instructors have allowed multiple submissions). For example, in the following screenshot, James Decosta have made 3 attempts for the assignment and therefore it is mentioned "View Attempts (3)".

3. On the view submission page, you will see the submission text, links and attachments made by the learner.

4. By default, Teamie consider learners' most recent attempt for grading. Click the Attempt drop down and select any other attempt for grading, if required.

Removing individual learner's attempt

1. Click the Attempts drop-down to view earlier attempts made by the learner and choose an attempt for deletion.

2. The most recent attempt will be shown by default. Click the Attempt drop down and select the required attempt for deletion.

3. Once you have selected the attempt for deletion, click Delete this attempt icon.

4. Click Yes, Delete! button to confirm and delete the selected learner's attempt. Click Cancel to go back.

Please note, deleted attempt(s) can not be recovered / restored.

5. The learner's attempt would be deleted and you would be brought back to the view attempts page where you can see the total number of attempts made by that learner is reduced by one, i.e. the attempt that you have removed.

Consider an attempt for grading from multiple attempts made by a learner

As an instructor, you always have the choice to select a particular learner's attempt for grading, when a learner has made multiple attempts to the assignment. By default, Teamie considers learner's most recent attempt for grading.

2. Go through learner's attempt before considering an attempt for grading.

3. In case, you wish to consider any of the earlier attempt made by that learner for grading, then click the Attempts drop-down and select the attempt of your choice. Then tick mark Consider this attempt for grading checkbox.

4. The selected attempt would be considered for grading.

Grading learners' submissions (normal score grading)

3. Go through learner's attempt.

4. Evaluate the submission and assign the appropriate score in the given box. The score will be auto saved.

Scores will be visible to learners only when you publish them. Saving the scores will assign the scores to the submission, but you need to publish the scores to make it visible to the learners.

Similarly, you can grade other learner's submissions by navigating to their submission from the Learners' listing drop-down or by clicking on their profile picture from the left / right of the screen.

Grading learners' submissions (scoring rubric grading)

2. In case a rubric is attached to the assignment, you can grade with the help of rubric and depending on the type of the rubric (scoring / non scoring), the marks can be given to the learner. In case of scoring rubric, select the appropriate scale to assign the points according to their respective criteria. Scores will assigned on the basis of the scales as shown below:

3. Once the grading is done, you need to publish the scores for learners to see them.

Grading learners' submissions (non-scoring rubric grading)

Non-scoring rubric allows teachers to grade learners based on just the rubric criteria and not the scores. Scores need to be entered separately during the grading process.

2. In case a non-scoring rubric is attached to the assignment, the score needs to be given separately after assigning scales for the criteria. The scales does not update the score as the rubric attached is non-scoring rubric and the scales are to provide feedback rather than score.

3. Enter the scores separately and publish them for learners to see. The scores will be auto-saved.

Rubric scales will be published along with the feedback and is independent of the scores being published.

Giving and publishing / unpublishing feedback on learners attempt

As an instructor you can give feedback on learners' submission in the form of textual comments, audio recording and scales (if a non-scoring rubric) is attached to the assignment. Also, you can add a comment on a specific rubric's criteria if a rubric is attached to the assignment. By default, feedback added by an instructor would be visible to the learners. You can choose to unpublish your feedback, if required. Let's see how you can do this.

In case a non-scoring rubric is attached to the assignment for grading, rubric scales will published along with the feedback and is independent of the scores being published.

2. To add textual feedback, enter text in the Enter your comment here text box. Then click Submit.

4. Click the microphone icon to record audio feedback / comment.

5. In case, browser prompts for an authorization (this is one time authorization) before accessing your system's microphone, then please allow the browser to access your system's microphone and click Record button to record the audio comment.

6. Click Stop when you are done recording your audio comment.

7. Click Play icon to playback the recorded audio comment, before adding it to the learner's submission.

8. Click Delete icon to delete the recorded audio comment and record the new audio, if required.

9. Click Submit to add the comment (textual or audio or both).

You can add both textual and audio comment in a single feedback comment.

10. By default, comment(s) added by you, as an instructor, would be visible to the learners.

Comments will be organised chronologically, older comments would be appearing at the top and recent comments would be appearing at the bottom.

In case non-scoring rubric is attached to an assignment, the scales will be published when you make the feedback visible for learners. This way learners can get the rubric feedback to improve on their submission and make another attempt, if available.

11. In case, you don't want learner's to view the comment(s), then untick make this visible to "username" checkbox and learner won't be able to view the comment(s) until you publish it.

Publishing / Unpublishing score of an individual learner

As an instructor, once you have graded learner's submission, next step would be to publish their score.

2. Click the Publish Score button of the required learner. Once the mark is published, that learner would be able to see the marks (score) on the "View my attempts" page.

3. Repeat step 2 to publish other learner's marks whose submission(s) have been reviewed and graded.

4. Click Unpublish Score button to unpublish marks.

In case, an instructor has created an assignment and allowed learners to make multiple attempts (for example, learner can make up to 5 attempts) to the assignment.

Now, let's assume, a learner made first three attempts and yet has the chance to make another two attempts. In the meantime, as an instructor, you have graded any of the learners attempt and published their marks, then learners will not be able to retake the assignment even when the maximum number of attempts value is not yet reached, because once marks are published, learners can not make any attempt. To allow learners to make another attempt, you may just grade learner's submission and also may add feedback on any of the attempt made so far, but you should not publish their marks. This will allow learners to retake the assignment after seeing instructor's feedback and then you may consider the recent attempt for final evaluation, grade it and publish mark. For this, you can unpublish scores.

Note: The aforementioned case is not applicable if the 'Allow attempts after scores are published' setting is enabled by an instructor.

Publishing / Unpublishing Score in bulk

In case you have graded a lot of learners, then you don't necessarily have to publish their scores one at a time. You can publish learner scores in bulk using the bulk operation on the assignment submissions listing page. Similarly, you can unpublish learner scores in bulk too. Let's see how this can be done.

1. Access assignment submissions listing page of the required assignment.

2. On the submissions listing page, you would see a field "Select to do bulk operations", tick mark this checkbox.

3. Selecting this checkbox will invoke the bulk operation actions like Publish and Unpublish scores, Publish and Unpublish feedback, Removing attempts and Sending reminder emails.

4. All learners are selected by default when bulk operation actions are invoked.

5. Select the learners whose marks to be published, then click Publish Scores button.

6. Click Yes, Publish to confirm and publish the marks for the selected learners. Else, click No, cancel to go back.

7. Clicking Yes, publish will initiate the scores publishing process.

8. A confirmation message appears stating that the scores have been published for the selected learners.

9. To unpublish the scores, select the learners, then click Unpublish Scores button.

Publishing / Unpublishing Feedback in bulk

1. On the submissions listing page of the assignment , select the learners whose feedback needs to be published, then click the Publish feedback button.

Feedback can be published/unpublished independent of the scores, i.e. even if the scores are unpublished, you can publish the feedback.

2. Click Yes, Publish to confirm and publish the feedback for the selected learners. Else, click No, cancel to go back.

3. Clicking Yes, publish will initiate the feedback publishing process.

4. A confirmation message appears stating that the feedback have been published for the selected learners.

5. To unpublish the feedback, select the learners, then click the Unpublish feedback button.

Removing learner's attempts in bulk

1. On the submissions listing page of the assignment, select the learners whose attempts you wish to remove and then click the Remove attempts button.

2. Click Yes, remove to confirm and remove all attempts made by the learner(s). Else, click No, cancel to go back.

In case a learner has more than one attempts, all the attempts will be removed. If you wish to remove a single attempt of the learner, then read this article "Removing individual learner's attempt" for more information.

3. Once you confirm, system starts removing the selected learner(s) attempts.

4. A confirmation message appears stating the learner(s) attempts have been removed.

Sending Email to learners in bulk

As an instructor, you may need to remind learners sometime to make the submission to the assignment, if they have not yet started or have kept their submission in draft mode, before the deadline. However, as an instructor, you may have several other cases where you want to send an email to a group of learners regarding the submission even after they have made an attempt - a common one being the instructor requiring a particular group of learners to reattempt the assessment. So, you can do that too, i.e, send email to group of learners who have already made an attempt by using this feature. Let's see how to do this.

1. On the submissions listing page of the assignment, select the learner(s) who needs to be reminded and then click the Send email button.

2. In the Send Email template, add your response in the text box below.

3. Click Send Email button to send the reminder for the selected learner(s).

Download learners attempts

1. On the submissions listing page of the assignment, click Download Attempts button to download all the learners attempts along with uploaded attachments in the form of a zip file.

2. Downloading attempts process starts.

3. Once the download process is completed, a .zip file will be downloaded in your local system.

4. Unzip the file to view the submissions details of each learner.

In case, if an assignment is shared with multiple classrooms, then system will create that many folders after .zip is extracted. For example, if an assignment is shared with General knowledge and Physics classrooms, hence two separate folders will created for each classrooms to contain the submissions of each learner from respective classrooms. You can navigate to the required folder to view learners submission.

5. Extracted folder will also download a consolidated file (PDF) having the submission(s) details of all learners at one place. Open the submissions pdf file to view each learner's submission who have already made the submission to the assignment.

The folders, created by learner's name will contain the file submissions made by the learners to the assignment. In case, no file submission is made by the learner, the folder will be empty.

Note: Youtube links and Google drive documents are not downloaded.

Applying Filters

As an instructor, you can apply a variety of filters on the view attempt page of an assignment.

1. By default, system shows all the learners along with their submission details, on the view attempts page of an assignment.

2. You may search for a specific user by typing user's name in the Name search box and the table will show up the matching results.

3. Similarly, you can sort the learners list by their First or Last name.

Note: By default, learners are listed in alphabetical order by their first name.

4. Click Last Name to filter learners list by their last name in ascending order.

5. Click Last Name filter again to view the learners list in descending order by their Last Name.

Similarly, click First Name filter to view learners list in descending order by their first name.

Sorting Learners Submissions by applying Submission Status filter

By default, system shows all the learners on the view attempts page of an assignment, irrespective of learners submission status. In Teamie, the following submission status are available:

  • All: Combinations of Not Started, Draft and Submitted status (applied by default).
  • Not started: Use this filter to see the list of learners who have not yet started making submission to the assignment.
  • Draft: Use this filter to see the list of learners who have started making submission and saved it as draft.

13. Click the User Status drop-down field and select All filter to see the list of learners who are in Active or Blocked state.

14. Click the User Status drop-down field and select Blocked filter to only see the list of learners who are in Blocked state. A block icon appears next to a learner's name indicating that the learner's access to this classroom has been blocked.

Viewing the learners submission from a particular classroom when assignment is shared with multiple classrooms

1. Click View attempts button of the required assignment.

2. On the submissions listing page, you would see an instruction telling that "This assignment has been shared with"number of" classrooms", View attempts from all the classrooms by clicking here", where clicking here is a hyperlinked text. Click the clicking here link to view attempts of learners from all the classrooms.

3. Now, you would see the list of learners from both the classrooms, the assignment is shared with, along with their submission status.

4. In case, you wish to view the list of learner's submission from a particular classroom, click the Classrooms drop-down field and refine your search by removing the classroom(s) whose submissions you don not wish to view by unticking it. In this case, we do not wish to see the learner's submission from Effective Communication Skills classroom.

5. Once the filter is applied, you would see the list of learners from the selected classroom(s) only, and then you may continue the grading process as per your requirement.

Some learners might be part of more than one classroom and if the assignment is shared with more than one classroom in which learner(s) is part of, they will be listed more than one time on the submissions page respective to their classrooms.
