How can I grade essay quiz questions using feedback?
Creating and grading an essay with feedback is a two-step process:
- Create your essay question quiz;
- Grade and offer feedback.
If you've already created your quiz and only need to know how to score and offer feedback, click the following link to jump down to step 2.
Create your quiz
You will, of course, have to fill out the Basic Info, Assignment and Settings tabs for your quiz, but we will not cover that here. To learn more about creating assignments, please refer to the help article How do I create assignments?.
Click the drop down arrow on the Create button and choose "Essay"
We recommend using "Essay" if your questions are truly essay questions -- if you choose "Short Answer" questions you must also supply the answers to the questions so LaunchPad can automatically grade them.
Click properties if you want to title your question
Note that this step is optional, but recommended if you are going to ask more than one question in this quiz.
After your students have completed the quiz, you can grade their essays and offer them feedback following the steps below.
Enter scores in the appropriate boxes
Note that you can use fractions for the scores in these boxes.
You can add feedback to multiple questions by using the numbering or bulleting feature in the toolbar at the top of the dialog box.
If you need to regrade the assignment, click on the student's score in the gradebook. That will open the grading dialog box again so you can make changes.
