The student’s test submission will open. From this screen, you can do the following:
  • Use the Grading Status filter to display all students or select the Needs Grading filter to focus on remaining graded work.
  • Select the Questions tab on the left to grade the submissions by question. The center panel will display all the student responses to an individual question. This is useful when grading essay questions.
  • Select the feedback button for a question to enter feedback specific to the student's response.
IDDC Pro Tip: Grades will only be visible to you until you post them to the gradebook. You can post grades individually as you grade each student’s work or you can post all grades at once.
