If you have a large number of students, you can manage the list of student assignment submissions so that it becomes more usable, by applying filters or customising options.
You can filter the student list by group or by status.
1. By group
If you have a large number of students and multiple markers, you can set up your assignmentso that you can easily filter students using the drop down box in the top centre of the screen.
Markers can use this to ensure they are only viewing the students whose work they need to mark.
2. By status
This filter allows the user to display a subset of students. You will find this filter at the bottom of the screen under Options. Choose between ‘No filter’ for all students, or choose 'Not submitted', ‘Submitted’, ‘Requires grading’, 'Late' or 'Has extension' to display only students who meet that criteria.
This filter is useful for managing student submissions and allows markers to see which students require grading, submitted late or have an extension.
If you scroll to the bottom of the page you will find Options.
The settings under Options are as follows:
Assignments per pagedetermines how many submissions are shown on each page. If you have a large class you may like to set this number higher than the default.
Filter see above
Exclude suspended users removes students from the list who have been suspended from the topic for any reason.
Quick Grading - Quick Grading allows you to grade directly into this table.
Manage large numbers of student assignments
If you have a large topic, it is likely that assignments will be marked by multiple markers (eg each tutor marks student papers from their tutorial group). In cases like this, it may be useful to organise your assignments by marking groups.
All students will still submit their assignment into the same assignment dropbox. Markers will be able to choose the group they need to mark from a drop-down list, and will then only see students whose assignments they need to mark:
