Marking > Assess: automatically scored Items only only

So what does it mean if an assessment only contains items that are automatically marked (scored). In short:

  • The assessment will be scored and graded automatically.
  • At the end of the schedule the results will be published.
  • In order to view or process the results of an automatically scored and graded assessment before the schedule has ended you need to assign an assessor / marker to it. This person can select the assessment you want from their Marking > Results-tab to view, publish or export the results.
  • If you chose to go fully automatic and choose the 'do not assign assessor workflow markers can still see the handed in results while the schedule is open under Marking > Results if they have 'view reports' enabled on their profile for the schedule's hierarchy.

  • When looking up results - remember to check the ‘Total items found’ listed on the page (10,30,50 or 100) for large groups/ cohorts.
  • You can also use the Filter by option provided on the results screen to submit large sets of results. This can be done in the Results screen (Marking) for any assessment
