Overview

You can grade and provide feedback on assignments one student at a time.

Accessing Grade by Student

  1. Click My Classes

  2. Click class name

  3. Click the three dots under Actions

  4. Click Grade by Student

This will take you to the Scores view.

Score: You can see each student's score so far. These scores could be from automatically graded MC questions or questions graded by the instructor.

Last Change By: The Last Change By column shows who made the last change to this activity. When the instructor assigns the activity, the status is set to No Change for all students. Once the student saves their work for the first time, the column changes to Student. Any comments or grades left by the teacher will change this to Instructor.

Student Updated At: This shows the time of the last edit made by a student. It's a great way to keep track of late work.

Status: What is the current status of the student's work? The Status will show one of the following:

  • Not started - the student hasn't yet opened and begun work on the assignment.

  • In Progress - the student has started working but hasn't yet submitted their work for grading.

  • Submitted - the student has submitted their work for grading.

After the student has submitted their work, you have several options for the Status of that work:

  • Submitted - the student has submitted their work for grading. They are unable to make any changes to their work.

  • Feedback/Revision - the student will see any comments and scores you've entered, and they will be able to modify their work.

  • Graded - You have graded the assignment and are communicating to the student that grading is complete. They are unable to make any changes to their work.

Actions: To see this student's responses on this activity (as of their last save), click Grade Student Response or click on the student's name.

Grading and Feedback

When you open a student's responses, you can see exactly what they entered for all questions. This view shows their last save; if they are actively working, refresh the page to see their work's latest version.

You can comment on their work, enter scores, or both.

  1. Navigate back to the Scores view for the assignment, or back to the assignment list for the class.

  2. Select Point Value to use the point total from autograded questions in addition to manually graded questions. Select Custom to set a customized, overall grade for the assignment.

  3. Navigate to the previous or next student.

  4. Options to view the answer key to the assignment, to show/hide instructor notes, to change the grading status (see below), save your grading progress, unlock all student sections, or to completely reset the student's response. Note: completely resetting a student's response deletes everything, including their progress and any grading or comments you've done. This cannot be undone!

  5. Score for a question. If autograded, you can overwrite it here.

  6. Comments displayed to the student.

Clicking on the Grading Status box will give you several options.

  1. Pending Grade - sets the Status of the assignment to Submitted. The student will be able to see their work and your comments but cannot make any changes.

  2. Final Grade - sets the Status of the assignment to Final Grade. The student will be able to see their work and your comments but cannot make any changes. If you've integrated Pivot Interactives with an LMS such as Canvas or Blackboard, this will also initiate the sending of scores to that platform.

  3. Request Revision - sets the Status of the assignment to Request Revision. The student will be able to see their work and your comments and make changes to their work.

When you are finished providing feedback, you'll need to save your work.
