Manual Grading

For more open-ended questions, manual grading is necessary. eMedley PA still helps graders, though. Our intuitive interfaces offer multiple options for approaching grading. Graders can choose to grade by student or by question. We also offer grading rubrics to streamline grading and eliminate subjectivity in grading open-ended questions. 

Student Testing and Assessment
Grade by Student
This interface presents tests in the usual way, with graders viewing one student’s entire test at once. The interface is designed to make grading more streamlined, though, so graders can also view the student’s information on the left side of the screen and can also easily switch between students within the interface.
Grade by Question
This interface is ideal for graders who prefer to grade all tests one question at a time or for classes where grading is divided between multiple people by question. With this option, graders easily go through each question on the exam and grade all responses to that question at once before moving onto another question.
Student Testing and Assessment
