Grading in BlueQuill

There are two main ways to add grades for assignments in BlueQuill, the GradeGrid and In Object Grading

1. Use the Grade Grid when:

  • You want to grade across many assignments
  • You need to bulk download submission files
  • You want to grade 'off line' 
  • Grading group work

2. Use In Object Grading when:

  • You want to grade students in one assignment
  • The assignment has a rubric
  • You want to view documents in BlueQuill without downloading files
  • You want to provide feedback in the document without uploading a file
  • Grading a discussion

    Hi Paul, Outstanding Blue Quill development and content for grading preface the question that follows with the fact that I am just an adjunct professor and time is a bit precius......Epic: "Day to Day" is still a bit of a challenge in the class and the !Discuss Area! of a lab, me and the students have learned the best thing to do is write everything in a word document save it, then cut and paste it to the posting.....because-- if you freehand/author content directly into the form, and happen to click back to a reference from the class you wish to quote/refer for the students to review all your work disappears. After the second do-over most of us do the workaround of typing the whole idea in a separate word document described in the beginning....Please consider --- if BLuequill would just save the info in the filed as a draft until published by the writer to the class the speed and content keeps flowing at a good rate, and minimizing duplicating of documentation which seems to be the workaround required by the BlueQuill current method. Thanks for considering PUAD 350-Performance Management and Policy Analysis Adjunct Faculty: Patrick Brobeck

    Thanks Patrick. I think that your recommendation is a good one and something that we can consider for a future release. For now, your work around seems like a good one. You could also consider if using BQ Docs for some of these assignments could be appropriate since it does allow you to save drafts before submitting them.

    @Cynthia, as long as final grades have not been submitted, you should be able to just click on the score that needs to be edited, change it and re-publish it.
