There are two Grade Release Options when you are ready to assign an assessment:
- Selecting "On Assignment Submission" will allow students to view their scores and answers immediately after completing the assignment. The feedback can be viewed by individual students as soon as the teacher gives the feedback.
- Selecting "Explicitly by Teacher" will withhold the results until the teacher releases the grades under Assignments. You must manually release the grades. The students can view scores, answers and feedback only after grade release.
The "Release Grades" button will become active only when:
ALL students have turned in their work.
The due date for the assignment has passed or the assignment is closed.
If the button is inactive, it could mean that students are still working through the assignment. You can check if all students in your class have not turned in their work. Please scroll through the responses and see if anyone has not submitted the work. Please ask them to click on "submit" if they have not turned in their work.
Once all students have turned in their work, the "Release Grades" button will become active for the assignment.
Note: You can still manually update any student's score at anytime AFTER they submit their assignment irrespective of the grade release option selected.
The teacher can opt to give feedback on individual questions and/or Overall Feedback on the assignment.
