So far both of the two assignment types that we've graded have been ones where the students are submitting work directly online. But what about assignments where the students are attaching a file, such as for the Thesis Statement? To view these types of assignments, simply click on the link for Thesis Statement at the top of Thesis Statement column. Here we are taken back into the similar view. Notice that quick grading is still enabled because we save that as a preference. If you don't want to have quick grading saved as a preference all the time, you can uncheck this box, hit Save preferences, and quick grading will go away.
The main difference in grading an assignment where the students have uploaded a file rather than simply entering text online is that in the Last modified by the Students column, there should be a document that the student has uploaded and attached directly to your Grade Book. To view this document simply click on the link for the document, and your browser should attempt to download the document. To grade the assignment, all you need to do is save the file down to your local computer. We'll click Save File. Then when I return down to my Desktop, I can see the file that has been downloaded from the student.
If I double-click on that document, the document opens up. I can read through the document and if I want, I can insert comments directly into the document and return it back to the student or can simply return back to my Grade Book, assign a grade of 50/50, provide feedback directly to the student in line. Quickly grade the other assignments, and then click the button to save all my feedback. Now, when I click the link to See all course grades in the upper right hand corner, I'm returned back to my Grade Book and I have the grades that have been entered into my Thesis Statement.
Go ahead and generate grades for the Final Research Paper on your own. Next, we'll go in and we'll grade an offline exercise by grading the Poster Presentation.
