Permissions and roles

To complete the procedures in this article, you must be assigned a role having the necessary permissions. This often excludes Students and TAs by default. To determine your role, follow the directions in Participant roles.

For a basic understanding of roles and permissions, see Permissions and roles.

[edit] Grading an assignment

To grade an assignment:

  • In the menubar, click Assignments. You will see a list of assignments.
  • Under the name of the assignment you want to grade, click Grade. You will see the assignment

along with student submissions. Note: To enter the same grade for all students without a grade, next to "Assign this grade to all participants without a grade", select or enter a default grade, and then click Apply.

To view a student's submitted assignment and start grading, click Grade below the student's name. Under "Assignment Submission", you'll see the student's submitted text. If applicable, under "Submitted Attachments", you'll see links to files the student submitted. Note: If a student has saved an assignment as a draft, the Grade option will still appear below the student's name, but you will be unable to see the text of the student's draft. You will see a warning that the student may still be working on the assignment, but you can enter summary comments and a grade just as you ordinarily would.

To leave comments, you have the following options:

  • You can add comments to the student's submitted text by enclosing your comments in double curly brackets, for example:

{{Cite your sources, please.}} The student will see your comments appear in red.

  • Under "Instructor Comments", you can enter summary comments in the text box (no special formatting is required).

If you would like to add an attachment to give to the student, click Add Attachments. For instructions, see Options for adding attachments.

  • Next to "Grade", select the grade for the student's assignment, or enter points in the box.
  • If you wish to allow the student to resubmit the assignment, check Allow Resubmission. Use the drop-down menus to select the "Accept Until" date.
  • When grading is complete, click Return Assignment to Student to make the student's assignment grade

immediately available, or click Save to return to the submitted assignments list to continue grading.

  • Click Preview to see how the returned assignment will look to the student, or click Cancel to return to the assignment

list. Note: You can return assignments to students with or without grades.

When you have finished grading student assignments and are ready to send grades to the Gradebook, when viewing the list of submitted assignments, click Release Grades.

[edit] Reviewing student status for all assignments

You can view a list of your students and see each one's status on each of the assignments. You can see whether the student has submitted the assignment, the assignment status, and the grade, if one has been given.

  • In the menubar, click the Assignments button.
  • From the "View" drop-down list, select Assignment List by Student.
  • To view the status of a student's assignment submissions, click the black arrow next to the student's name. To hide the student's information, click the arrow again.
