The Marking Guide Editor window contains controls that enable you to build a structure marking guide.
To display the Marking Guide Editor:
Note A marking guide may not be edited while any students are loaded into the current project.
This area will contain items. There are two types of items.
By default, this area contains one item (or line), "Select Edit Item to change the description". Clicking on the item activates the Item Description text box below the Marking Guide Outline Area. Changing the text in the Item Description text box and then clicking Update button will change the text of the original line. Concurrently one can determine whether an item is a heading item or a mark item.
Leave the check mark next to the option Heading, and the item will remain a heading item. Remove the check mark next to the option Heading, and the item selected in the Marking Guide Outline Area becomes a marking item.
Heading items typically contain marking items; whereas marking items generally do not, but can contain other marking items. Each marking item must have a value between one and 1000 inclusive, any other values result in a warning.
Note Selecting Save does not mean that changes to the marking cannot be made in the future. However once a list of students is loaded the marking guide cannot be changed. It is therefore advisable to make a copy of the project file before loading the list of students in case a change to the marking guide is needed.
