View by Students
The View Answers by Students button allows you to view and enter answers for all the responses by one student at a time.
Select the name of a student to enter answers for that student. Search by student name to find a specific student. As you enter answers, all changes are saved automatically. However, this button does not score the student until you select Score Student.
View by Questions
The View Answers by Questions button allows you to view and enter answers for one question number at a time, for a single student or for all students.
In View by Questions mode, select All Students for the associated section, or click a student's name to enter answers for one specific question. Select the question number in the pagination area to score only that question.
To see a summary of all the question numbers, click More. To navigate to another question, click a question number in the question summary guide.
Adding and Clearing Filters
In both View by Students and View by Questions modes, you may add a filter to All Response Types, Constructed Response Types, or Unanswered Response Types.
You can easily tab through and enter scores for each student’s answer for Constructed Response Types by selecting All Students under View by Questions mode.
In the student sidebar, you can sort students by first or last name.
You can filter to see only the unscored students. Students who are unscored have a bell indicator to the right of their name.
To clear all filters, including the filters in the students sidebar, click the Clear Filter button. This button will take you back to the landing page of the Enter Answers view.
To return to the Tests Available page, click the back arrow in the top left corner of the screen.
Review and Score
After you are ready to submit students scores, you can click the Review & Score button. This button will open a window that shows a list of unscored students, with the number of unanswered responses they have.
To score students, select the check box next to the student name(s), then click Score Selected Students. After a student is scored, the student will have a score under Analysis. If the student had unanswered questions, this option will score these as incorrect.
Note: After selecting Review & Score, refresh your browser window before navigating to Analysis to update the data.
If you want to go back to a specific student's answers, you can click on the student's name to return to View by Students and review the unanswered questions.
Previews in Enter Answers
To assist you while entering answers, three preview options are available in View by Students and View by Questions. These previews are for the question, scoring guide (if you entered this information in the assessment), and student notes (if the student has entered notes for the question).
In View by Students, the preview buttons are located in the top right corner of each response.
The Question Preview button is on the left.
The Scoring Guide button for constructed responses is in the center.
The Student Notes button is on the right.
In View by Questions, if the All Students filter is selected, only the question preview and scoring guide buttons are located in the top right corner of the list of questions. If a student has written a note, the notes icon will be near the student's name.
