Make sure you're logged in as a student (username student1 or student2, password SkillingRocks). Submit an exercise solution with the Submit solution button:
A new window will pop up. Type in your solution, and/or upload a file. You'll need to say how difficult the exercise was.
After you submit (and maybe refresh the page), you'll see the new status of the exercise.
Log out, and log in as a grader (username: grader, password: SkillingRocks).
Start the grading interface. Here's one way:
You'll see a list of submissions waiting for grading:
If the grader account was also the instructor, the names of the students would show up. They're hidden in this case, since the grader isn't the instructor. The grader might be a former student, in which case it's better to hide the names.
Click on a submission, and you'll get to grade it. Here's part of the screen:
The course's author added three rubric items to the exercise. The author gave the first rubric item two preset responses, though more can be added. Click on some responses. Choose whether the exercise has been completed or not. Give an overall evaluation.
You might end up with:
The solution needs work, and isn't complete. Click Create message to make a feedback message.
You can edit the message. Add links, whatever you want. Click Send message to finalize your feedback.
- Because of the preset responses, and other smart Skilling things, you can grade this exercise in about a minute.
- Graders can be casual workers. Instructors don't have to do their own grading.
This is what makes personal formative feedback practical at scale.
Now log out from the grader account, and log back in as the student who did the exercise. You can access the feedback from the lesson that contains the exercise, the Your stuff | Submissions report, or the timeline. In any case, you'll see something like this:
You can look at your submission (though not edit it), see your feedback, and, since you didn't complete the exercise, try again.
