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.

Grade View is used by teachers to review students’ completed test questions and to grade constructed responses. Teachers with a proper subscription can also use Grade View to conduct a one-to-one assessment with a student or regrade a student's test.

Grade View allows teachers to:

  • Access other eAssessments related resources or views like Assignments, 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.
