How do I change the visibility of student results?

By default, students can see the results of an assessment they complete as soon as it's been marked. You can withhold results until you're ready to share them, for example until you have marked the entire cohort's assessments. 

Create an assessment by following this guide.

When you reach the Assessment Setup section, choose between whether your students' results will be released as soon as possible or when you choose to, using the drop-down menu:

  • Making the results visible as soon as possible means that your students will be able to see their results in their Assessment Results page as soon as they have completed the test (if the test is automatically-marked) or as soon as their assessment has been marked (if the test is manually-marked). They will also be automatically emailed their results.
  • Making the results visible when you choose to means that students won't see their grade until you release them. They will still receive an email with their results when you release them.

Other teachers in your school can release results from the Control Panel as well. Keep this in mind if a single assessment has been assigned to multiple classes, as it may result in one class seeing their results before you expected.

Once the assessment has been completed and marked, release results by hovering over the assessment in question and selecting the Analysis button.

There is a banner under the Insights & Actions section with information about how visible the results are to students. Select Change to move between visibility settings.

Choose between Internal, Provisional and Finalised Results. You can also show students their grades, but not the questions they were asked, by unticking Allow students to view their papers. This can be useful if you want to keep the assessment private for reuse in the future.

The three settings are:
Internal Results: Not visible to students. Choose this when you are still marking the assessments, or have a planned release date for the results.
Provisional Results: Visible to students, but labelled as Provisional. Choose this when you want students to see their marks, but may want to make changes to the results.
Finalised Results: Visible to students and labelled as final. Choose this when you have marked the assessments and do not want to make any further changes.

Click Confirm to save your changes. If you have changed results from Internal to Provisional or Finalised, students will also automatically be emailed with their results (assuming this was enabled when setting up the assessment.)
