Marking an Assessment, in the sense used in the Assessment Tool, involves entering the Learner's responses into the Assessment Tool so that it can calculate the Learner's Scale Score. To do this, an Educator or Administrator must:
Downloading the Marking Guide
Note: To print or view the Marking Guide, you will need to have the Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer, or be using a browser with the Acrobat plugin installed. The Acrobat Reader is available as a free download from the Adobe website.
Note: If there is no Print Assessment panel in the side menu, check that the Assessment is a Non-Adaptive for Printing Assessment by checking the value for Type in the Assessment details in the side menu. Only Non-Adaptive for Printing Assessments will have a Marking Guide, and an Assessment cannot be changed from one type to the other (i.e. you cannot create an Assessment as an Adaptive Assessment, then later change it to a Non-Adaptive for Printing Assessment or vice versa.)
Entering the Learners' responses into the Assessment Tool
Entering the Learner's responses into the Assessment Tool requires an understanding of the various different types of Assessment questions that can be asked. For the purposes of marking, these can be divided into:
To enter the Learners' responses into the Assessment Tool you will need to have downloaded the Marking Guide (see above), and you will need the completed copies of the Assessments as returned from the Learners.
When you have finished, select Save to save the marks and return to the Main Mark Assessment screen, or Save and Mark Next to be taken to the input screen for the next Learner in alphabetical order of last name. Check the new Learner's name in the Assessment Tool is the same as the name on the front cover of the Assessment.
When the Learners' responses have been entered, the Learner and Educator can view the Reports for the Assessment.
Warning: Always check that the Learner's name is the one that appears on the Assessment cover. There is no easy way to transfer marks from one Learner to another, and mistakes in marking are, therefore, time consuming to rectify.
Hint: It may be easier if you arrange the Learner's returned Assessments in the same order as they are presented in the marking page - i.e. alphabetically by last name.
