In order for your students to start a lesson that uses kuraCloud grading:
- Ensure that "kuraCloud grading" is enabled for your course (this is on by default for all new courses, so you only need to perform this step if you want to turn it on for a course created prior to 2015).
- Author the lesson – add question panels and ascribe points and/or feedback to each question. More information about authoring graded questions can be found in the Authoring section of the help.
- Add a Completion Page to your lesson (this is also optional, but required if you would like to begin grading as soon as each student finishes their work – please refer to the explanation below).
- Publish the lesson so that students can begin.
A note about Completion Pages and Forcing Lesson Completion:
Completion Pages function as the digital equivalent of "turning in" or "handing in" a report, test or quiz. By adding a completion page to your lesson, students will need to click "commit" to finalize their answers. When they do this, all question panels in the lesson become locked (uneditable for that student) and kuraCloud commences grading of all automatically gradable questions. You, or people you assign to grade the course, are also able to grade the student's written answer questions at this point. Note that all of these operations occur on a student-by-student basis.
You can also use the "Commit All Work" feature to lock all students' answers and initiate grading for all students at once. Forcing lesson completion is useful where you have set a deadline and want to grade all students after this time, regardless of whether they have completed the lesson or not. If you intend to use this feature, it is not necessary to have a completion page, but by omitting it, kuraCloud will be unable to determine the number of students who have completed the lesson prior to the deadline.
To commit all student work, go to the card for the course and navigate to Student Work > Lesson > Grading > Commit All Work.
