Changing the Grading for an Assessment

You have the option to change how your assessment is graded.

Changing the Grading

You can change your assessment grading from a percentage score to an NCEA grade score. Start by navigating to your Content section.

Find the assessment that you want to change the grading for.

Next, go into Edit mode.

Click More settings at the top of the page and select Grading options.

Depending on how the marking is currently set up for the assessment, you'll have the option to switch to either percentage based marking or grading based marking.

Graded Marking

There are two options for the grading based marking: NCEA Marking (Achieved, Merit, Excellence) and NCEA Grade Score Marking (Not achieved 0 - Excellence 8).

Changing question scores

You can change how many points a question is worth by selecting the question in the sidebar before updating the points under the Score section at the bottom of the page.

You can update the scores for an entire section by selecting the section in the sidebar and then Assign Score.

You can then input the score and select Set Score to confirm.

Limited Exam Editor

If your students have already started to complete the assessment, you are still able to update the grading options. When you select Edit Exam you will see the following prompt. To make changes on the assigned exam, select Edit live exam.

You will then be able to update the exam using the instructions in the sections above.

The Limited Exam Editor option will only appear for content that is owned by you. You can see who the current owner of the exam is by selecting the exam in your Content Library using Edit mode.

You will also not be able to use Limited Exam Editor option if your exam is shared to Public. You can resolve this by selecting More and the Make Private to school.
