Student Comments and Adjustments
Previous Topic  Next Topic 



In addition to the item comments the markers can also provide additional feedback via specific comments to specific students.  These comments are only seen by that student.  


This facility enables information regarding elements within their submission to be highlighted and if required an adjustment be made to the marks allocated.  The adjustment marks can either add or remove marks from the student or simply be a comment with no adjustment applied.   The comments allow for areas within the marking guide that may be lacking to be addressed where required.  For example, a comment and associated adjustment can be applied where the submission was late, or perhaps marks are awarded to reward work that was supplied but not considered in the marking guide.  Each comment added is stored against the particular student and is also placed in a general repository where it can be reused if it is relevant to another student during the marking process.  A list of all comments made for all students is available for analysis.
