The new PolyLearn Assignment Grader tool allows faculty to:
- view a PDF file
- annotate a PDF (.docx will be available this Winter)
- use advanced grading tools (Rubric and Grading Guide)
- provide a final grade
- write feedback in comment form
- upload an attachment (text or audio file)
Rubrics can be expanded with the toggle buttons on the bottom right side of the screen for easy viewing, and Faculty grading time can be significantly reduced when using rubrics and grading guides.
A well-designed rubric provides consistency, structure, and efficiency in the grading process. Rubrics can be seen by students before the assignments are due, and provide a description of expected performance requirements.
