How to upload grades and feedback for assignments.

Note: This guide describes how to enter grades and written (i.e. typed) feedback for an assignment. If you would like to give feedback by uploading a file (for example a scanned assignment with handwritten comments), this is covered in a separate guide.

  1. Log in.
  2. Click "Website Admin" at the top-right of the screen
  3. Click the "Modules" box.
  4. You will see the list of modules that you have access to. Next to the one whose assignments you want to mark, click "Select Module".
  5. Click "Manage Exams".
  6. You will see a table of all the assignments for the selected module. There are now two ways you can proceed: you can either enter marks and feedback via a web form or via a spreadsheet which you will upload.

Entering marks via the web form

  1. Find the row in the table corresponding to the assignment you wish to mark and click on "add results", or "edit results/feedback" if you have entered results for this assignment previously.
  2. If this is the first time marks have been entered for this assignment, you will see a choice between two tabs labelled "Add via file" and "Add via web form"; select "Add via web form". If marks have been entered previously for this assignment, skip this step.
  3. You will see a table with rows corresponding to the students enrolled in this module. Enter the mark for each student in the "Mark" or "Grade" column. You can also enter written feedback in the "Feedback" column.
  4. When you have finished entering marks, scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Add exam results", or "Update exam results/feedback" if you are editing existing results.
  5. The process is now complete. Note that in order for grades/feedback to be visible to students you will need to "verify" the results for the whole assignment. This is covered in another guide.

Uploading marks via a spreadsheet

Note: this method is only possible if this is the first time marks have been entered for this assignment. If it is not, please use the web form method above.

  1. Click the button labelled "Download module students spreadsheet for entering marks" and save the file somewhere on your computer.
  2. Open the spreadsheet in your preferred spreadsheet program (Excel, OpenOffice, etc.).
  3. You will see rows corresponding to the students enrolled in your module. Enter the marks for each student for the current assignment in the "marks" column. You can also enter written feedback in the "feedback" column.
  4. When you have finished entering marks, save the spreadsheet.
  5. Return to your web browser and find the row in the table corresponding to the current assignment. Click "add results".
  6. Make sure that the "Add via file" option is selected and click the "Browse..." button. Select the spreadsheet file that you saved containing the marks for the assignment. If you don't see an "Add via file" option this probably means that marks have already been entered for this assignment. You can still edit these using the web form method above.
  7. Click the "Add exam results" button.
  8. You may see some error messages. However, if you scroll past these you should see a table of students containing the marks and feedback that you entered into the spreadsheet.
  9. Check that the marks and feedback are correct, then scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Add exam results".
  10. The process is now complete; you will see a page summarising the marks you entered.
  11. Note that in order for grades/feedback to be visible to students you will need to "verify" the results for the whole assignment. This is covered in another guide.
