How do I grade an assignment submission in the Teacher app on my Android device?

The menu tab within each assignment allows you to easily grade assignments, including grading with a rubric, view previous submissions, and leave comments.

When you are finished grading an assignment for a student, swipe left or right to view other student submissions.

The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display, but unless otherwise noted, tablet displays mirror the same steps.

In the grade field [1], enter the grade for the submission according to your grading standard (i.e. points, GPA).

Tap the OK link [3].

Use Rubric

View Rubric

If you added a rubric with your assignment, you can use the rubric to help you score the student's submission. The Grade tab displays whether or not the grade is calculated by the rubric.

To view the rubric short rating summary, tap and hold the rating number [1].

To view multiple criteria in the rubric, you can adjust the height of the grades window by tapping and holding the menu bar [2].

Use Rubric for Grading

If you selected the rubric to be used for grading, you can automatically apply points to the submission grade.

Once you have entered a score for a rubric, the rubric score cannot be removed.

To select rubric points, tap the rubric score [1]. Selected criterions will be highlighted.

To add a custom score not included in the criterion options, tap the Add icon [2]. You can add a manual grade for the criterion.

Note: If your rubric is not set to be applied for grading, you can still tap the points for each rubric criterion, but but you'll have to add the points manually and enter them in the grade field.
