Tuesday Tech Tip: Grading Assessments in Schoology

This week we will explore grading assessments in Schoology.

Now that you have administered an assessment in Schoology you may think that you are done, but did you know you have options? Yes, options.

Some of those options include:

You might need to grade some subjective questions or you may want to review the submissions in the event you need to offer partial credit.  
To do this:

Here you can review and score questions and offer comments if you would like to provide that level of feedback.

What about grading all submissions for a particular question? You can do that too.

This is also a good place to analyze how your class performed as a whole on each question.

Wondering why all of your students did so poorly on question 5? Surely, you wrote a great question and selected the correct answer. But in the event that you need to adjust the answer and regrade, no problem. To change the answer for all, go to your test and change the answer. This will adjust the scores in the gradebook accordingly. If you need to dig deeper into a particular student's response and override a score, you can do that too by reviewing the question in question.

Another consideration is analyzing mastery.  For more information about Mastery in Schoology, please visit our post from March 25th or a section from the Schoology Help Guide.

Yes, Schoology is amazing for a variety of things. Grading assessments after the assessment is complete will help you with monitoring student progress and thus assist in the PLAN-TEACH-MONITOR-ADJUST cycle.
