The Grading Layer

When the Grading layer is selected, you can use QuickMark, add in-context comments, overall comment in text or audio, and grade with rubrics, to provide feedback. For more detailed information on each of the grading tools, check out Commenting Tools including overall feedback in text and audio, QuickMarks, and Rubrics pages.

To assign a grade without using a rubric, type the grade in the space shown below. It will be filled in your course Grade Center automatically.  You can only assign integer grade. No decimal point is accepted.
