This tutorial will show how to review open-answer questions requiring manual revision from an instructor. Here you can read:
PLEASE NOTE: only Open answer and Answer with Attachment question types need an instructor’s review:
Identifying an answer that needs a review
All Assessments containing a question that requires an instructor’s corrections are highlighted by this NEED REVIEW yellow alert in the Assessments section:
You can also quickly identify them from the Record, where you can filter Exercises and Tests containing open-answer questions still to be graded from the top menu. Unreviewed questions are also highlighted by this ⚠ alert:
Here’s a guide about the Record and how to use it.
Once you’ve opened the Assessment, click on the orange alert to see the open-answer questions still to be graded:
Reviewing a reply to an open-answer question
From the box reserved for reviewing open-answers question to be, you can:
- read the learner's reply. In an Answer with Attachment, you can also view the resource that the learner has added
- give feedback to the student; for example, you can type, “Pretty much on track, but you could have developed the answer better” or “Great job! That’s a very exhaustive reply”
- insert the score by manually entering how many points to assign to the answer.
You can read here how to assign custom points to each question
PLEASE NOTE: an answer is considered correct when a score of at least 60% is awarded. For example, 3 out of 6 would be incorrect, whereas 4 out of 6 would be correct.
- ask the learner to reply again to the open-answer question (asking for a new reply is not mandatory but up to the instructor). Here’s a guide on how to open the question for a new submission.
At last, click on Review:
After the review, you can still see both the learner’s replyas well as your feedback. You can also edit or remove your review:
PLEASE NOTE: reviewing an open-answer question is necessary to determine the learner’s overall grade.
You can also decide to hide the Test results from a learner before your review. Here you read how to make the results public only after an instructor’s review.
