Grading and Feedback for Student Responses

Here are three ways to add grades and provide feedback for students's responses as they work on Pivot Interactives activities:

  • Grade by Question: select up to five questions and grade all students' responses on one page
  • Grade by Student: grade and comment on the entire activity for each student.
  • Students export .PDF files of their responses, and submit them to their Learning Management System (LMS) for grading

1. Grade by Question

This method is intended to allow teachers to quickly provide feedback and grades for all students in the class for up to five questions in an activity. Here's a video tutorial:

  1. While viewing the activity in Pivot Interactives, select the browser's print function.
  2. Select the option to Save as PDF. Note: the location of this button depends on the OS and browser the student is using. Save the PDF file to the computer
