How to Grade Assignment Questions

How to grade Assessments

This is available in the Assessment Builder. If you are not able to see it don't worry! We expect to release it to everyone by the beginning of June

When creating an Assessment learning activity, you have the option to insert graded-type of questions:

On the settings, you also have the option to set the Grade and Attempts of the whole assessment, as well as the option to Show the grade, immediately or after all assessment questions are graded. For more information on how to set the scoring settings of your assessment, you can check this article.

Questions such as multiple-choice, True or False, etc can be graded automatically, and provide feedback on the spot. 

If the assessment contains Text Assignment or File assignment questions, in order to grade the Assessment:

1. Go to Reports Center → Assignments.

2. Select the Ungraded tab, hover over Manage on the user's assignment, and click on Grade Assignment.

3. Set the score percentage for each essay question (100% equals all the scoring points).

4. On the scoring summary you can view the total score in percentage & score points, the score for auto-graded questions (if any are inserted), and the final assessment score that will define if the user has passed or failed. 


  • If your assessment contains auto-graded questions as well, apart from Text Assignment questions, the score you will insert on the essay questions will define if the user will pass the general assessment or not. This is displayed on the Score for auto-graded questions field. Ιf you don't have auto-graded questions, the field will display 0 / 0 points.
  • If your assessment includes both a File Assignment and Text Assignment questions, both can be graded on the same sideform.

How to grade (Legacy) Assignments

To grade a legacy Assignment you can follow exactly the aforementioned process. Note that the scoring will not be advanced, and you will have the option to assign a score from 1 to 100.

1. The Assignment Grading window will appear, displaying the user's name, time and date of the assignment's last modification, and the user's reply.

2. By scrolling down the Assignment Grading window, you will be able to add comments and grade the assignment, by adding a score from 1 to 100. Your comments can include an image or even a link with useful resources.

3. This is how the legacy graded assignment will look to your users.

How to grade (Legacy) File Assignments

1. To grade a legacy File Assignment you can follow exactly the aforementioned process, however, you will have the option to also view the files the user has uploaded. You may even add a file to accompany your grading (you can upload a file up to 20 MB).

2. In your File assignment settings, you can also allow the "resubmission if failed" setting.

General Notes: 

  • All the graded Assignments can be found under the Graded tab.
