Grading and Feedback Updates

There are two major updates that are intended to support teachers in providing more effective feedback and make it easier to score/grade assessment questions.  

 

Question Level Feedback

You may now add written feedback underneath the score for each individual question on an assessment.  This can support students in using the assessment to drive their next steps in learning.  You will also notice that the scoring field now scrolls alongside the question responses. 


Pin Question to Top of Screen

This new feature lets you pin the question at the top, and makes the question clearly visible as you score each student's response on the page. 

 

 


 

Linking Questions

Improved Accessibility Features

It  is important to continue to improve BCPS One to accessible to all users.  Students may now answer drag-and-drop questions using keyboard shortcuts alone (tab + spacebar + enter) without the need of a mouse.  This shortcut should be familiar to students that use them on a regular basis.
