Solution Spotlight: How to Grade Assignments for Hours Tracking

The steps below are for grading an Assignment for hours tracking. See the Solution Spotlight: Tracking Hours for Internships, Practicum or Projects page for more information about this solution.

Steps for Grading

Instructors can either go to the Grades tool or to the Assignments tool.

  1. From Grades: An inbox icon will appear for those who responded. An orange dot is added to the icon if there are unread submissions.
  2. The instructor would then select the icon for each student to open their submission. This will show the submission for that student, and a link to the document the student has attached will display on the left side of the screen (ready to view or to download).
  3. The Instructor would download the attached file to review it.Assignment-Submission-Files
  4. Then, on the right side of the Submission page, add a comment to the Feedback field indicating the number of hours* approved, the date, and the approval file title.  *Keeping a record of the number of hours each time will help confirm the score total is accurate for record-keeping purposes.
  5. Select Add File to upload the approved file.  We recommend your upload be saved with Student name, Approved, quantity of hours, and original submission date in the file name.
  6. In the Score field, add the new hours earned to the final score.
  7. Click Publish or Update to save your changes and share the grade/responses with the student. Repeat for additional students. If you get an Overwrite pop-up warning, click overwrite (this just means that your new addition to the feedback field will be saved).
