Marking and leaving Feedback & Annotations
If a student has not attempted a particular question, it will be shown on your page as shown above. AssessPrep automatically assigns zero marks on not attempted questions.
For multiple choice questions, if a student has marked the correct answer, AssessPrep automatically assigns full marks. This feature greatly reduces a teacher's workload.
If a student has typed a particular answer, you can check it and assign the marks accordingly by typing in the space provided.
In the 'comments' box, you can type anything that you wish to convey to the student. For this an extensive tool panel is made available as shown above, when you start typing.
Once you have typed the marks and comments, click on 'Submit' to save them.
Note - As soon as you type the marks, AssessPrep automatically adds them to the total marks. This way, you never have to worry about totaling the test.
On the answer typed by the student, the teacher can also make annotations.
For this, select the part of the text that you wish to annotate. A blue icon will appear as shown above. Click on this icon to type the annotation.
When you click the 'Annotate' icon, a text editor will open as shown above. In this editor, type your annotation and click on 'Save'.
The annotated text will be highlighted in yellow and when the student will bring the cursor over the highlighted text, they will be able to read the annotation.
