Marking groups requires the assignment activity to be set up for groups

We also recommend you use the following process to upload marks and feedback into FLO for group assignments.

See also Create a group assignment (includes marking considerations).

Mark group assignments offline

Method 1 – steps

The bulk download feature for group assignments downloads one assignment per student (NOT one assignment per group) in the zip file. We recommend that all group assignments be manually downloaded from the File submissions column in the Assignment submissions table.
  1. Click on the assignment link

  2. In the next screen, click View all submissions

  3. From the drop-down Visible/Separate groups box (depending on how the assignment has been set up), select the group you want to mark
    assignment group

  4. Choose one student file to download for the entire group from the File submissions column (click on the file to download)
    file submission column

  5. Open the file and mark it. To upload it for all students in the group, you will need to upload the marked file for each student. Click on the Grade button for an individual student. In the individual marking screen, and upload the marked file in the Feedback files box
    Feedback files box

  6. Download the grading worksheet and put in the marks for each group, then upload to FLO, or add the grade as you upload the files to FLO (using the steps above)

Method 2 
– steps
Another way of marking group work is to download the files in a zip folder (for the selected group), mark one of the files, then save it as each of the other group members (ie replace the file that has been downloaded for each student with the marked file). You can then upload the files as you normally would for offline marking. You don't need to change any file names as you are replacing one file with another, so there is no risk of FLO not being able to upload them.

Mark group assignments online – steps

  1. Click on the Assignment activity

  2. In the next screen, click the View all submissions button

  3. From the list of students, select one member of the group and click on Grade (in the Grade column) to get to the individual marking form
    grade button

  4. Enter the mark, comments and upload feedback files (as required) on the  individual marking form

  5. In the Grade/Feedback comments/files view, scroll to the bottom of the screen. If the assignment has been set up to use groups, you will see a Group submission settings tab. Set 'Apply grades and feedback to entire group' to Yes. This will ensure that all group members receive the same feedback and mark. Of course, if you are marking students individually set this to No:
    apply grades and feedback to entire group
