About Grading eAssessments
eAssessments are digital tests that ease students away from traditional, paper-based testing to online assessment. Teachers assign eAssessments to students to check in-class progress and provide an experience that resembles the environment of many state-wide mandated online tests, therefore preparing students.
The Grading tool is used by teachers to review students’ completed test questions and to grade constructed responses. Teachers can also use the Grading tool to conduct a one-to-one assessment with a student or regrade a student's test.
The Grading tool allows teachers to:
- Access other eAssessments related resources or views like Assignments, Student View, Share with Students, and Reports.
- Filter by student test status and/or question status.
- Access versions of a student’s open responses saved over time to analyze the response development.
- Work with a student one-on-one on an assessment.
- Manage scores and comments sent to students.
