How to grade an assignment

  1. Login to Moodle and navigate to the assignment you’re going to grade.
  2. Click on the assignment name – you should now see a grading summary.
  3. Click Grade at the bottom of the page.
  4. You’ll now see a page with the assignment submission on the left hand side, a panel across the top of the page with the student’s details and name of the assignment. Down the right hand side is the grading panel.
    1. Markup toolbar – above the submission is a toolbar that allows you to add comments to the assignment file as well as draw on it or highlight sections.
    2. Grade – depending on the settings of the assignment this is where you set the final grade for the assignment. This could be a numerical value, a simple pass/fail or something else. After this is the marking workflow state – you’ll be told what setting you’re expected to use but generally an assignment could be grading and left as Marking Complete which means students don’t yet see the grade or Released meaning students are sent their grade and feedback.
    3. Feedback comments – use this section to provide feedback to the student about their assignment and your grade.
    4. Feedback files – if this is turned on for this assignment you’re able to submit feedback as a file – just upload it in the window.
    5. Attempt settings – here you can see how many attempts a student has made and if they’ve been allowed extra attempts.
    6. Change user – use these arrows to switch between student submissions.
  5. When you’re finished grading click Save changes at the bottom of the page.
