Grading Assignments Using a Custom Marking Guide
Last modified on 22 June 2023 01:01 PM
Marking guides are one of the advanced grading methods available in the eClass assignment activity. Similar to rubrics, they allow you to set up a number of marking criteria for the assignment. But instead of selecting from fixed scoring levels on each criterion, instructors score students manually from the maximum score for each category. When marking assignments, instructors can also provide feedback for each category optionally using a pre-entered series of frequently used comments. eClass will automatically add the marks given for each of the marking criteria and provide students with a total mark and feedback for the assignment.
