How do I evaluate assignments in SpeedGrader™?
SpeedGrader™ makes it easy to evaluate individual student assignments and group assignments quickly.
You can access SpeedGrader through:
Sort Student List
View Assignment Indicators
For easy identification, each student is identified with a assignment submission status next to his or her name:
- A green checkmark indicates the assignment has been graded
- A yellow checkmark indicates the assignment has been re-submitted
- No checkmark indicates the assignment has not been graded
- A faded checkbox indicates the assignment has not been submitted
Evaluate Individual Assignments
SpeedGrader opens the assignment for the first student listed in the student list, arranged alphabetically by last name.
View Student Submission
View the student's assignment in the main body of SpeedGrader.
To provide comments on the assignment, you can:
View Submission Details
Evaluate Multiple Submissions
Assign a Grade
To submit a grade for the student's assignment, enter the grade in the grade field .
If a Rubric is attached to the assignment, you can click the View Rubric button  to evaluate the assignment.
If you would like to submit a comment on the evaluated assignment, type in the Add a Comment field . You can also attach a file or a media comment by clicking one of the media icons . When you are ready to submit your comment, click the Submit Comment button .
You can view any existing comments from the student, as well as new comments you post on the assignment, in the Discussions area . Comments on assignments will also appear as a new thread in Conversations.
Evaluate Group Assignments
When evaluating group assignments, the SpeedGrader drop-down menu will display the name of each group instead of each student.
Evaluating group assignments is the same process as individual students. You can mark up documents directly or download them for feedback, enter grades and view the rubric, and post and view comments.
