Marking/grading discussion/written tests

An increasing number of tests are described as discussion/written work tests. Teachers can use these for whole class discussion or for extended written work.

IMPORTANT The student must save their final version before the teacher can look at and mark the work.


To find the button to view what the student has written, first go to 'View results for the tests in this lesson' - or the equivalent button coming direct from the tests. You can also find the result from the Results tab at the top, though the result will be harder to find.


Then you will see the underlined word View.


That takes you to a screen like the one below (this is actually a different test).

The questions are listed on the left - most tests so far only have a maximum of two questions.

At the top right you'll see what the student wrote. At the bottom right is our suggested ideal answer.


The teacher can then grade each question out of 10. That will produce a final percentage score.

There is also a space for the teacher to write comments.



To reset the marks/grades you need to find the test itself - you can search for it by going to the Tests tab and searching in the Test Index.

Then go to the Class results button, find the class and click the red Reset to zero button.

IMPORTANT: This doesn't just reset the marks/grades. It also:

  • Clears the student's original answer
  • Clears any saved teacher comments

So student and teacher will be starting again.
