Grading with LabArchives
There are two ways you can access students’ notebooks and grade using LabArchives tools. You can view student assignments in Moodle or in the LabArchives using the Course Manager.
To grade using LabArchives tools in Moodle, first log into Moodle and select an assignment. This will open the LabArchives Assignment Navigator:
To grade a student’s work directly in LabArchives, log into LabArchives, open Course Manager, and click Open Assignment Navigator on the top right of the Students tab. This will open the LabArchives Assignment Navigator.
The LabArchives Assignment Navigator
You will see the Assignment navigation tool at the top of a student’s notebook. This allows you to navigate from student to student within a specific course and section (if applicable) for a specific assignment. You can also view different assignments within a course for any given student.
Student names: This field allows you to navigate student notebooks in your course. You can click on the next or previous buttons (students are listed in alphabetical order) or you can click on the drop-down arrow to see the list of all the students in the course (or in the specified section, if applicable).
Go to assignment: This drop-down list allows you to select an assignment for a specific course for a selected student. This will allow you to remain on the same assignment when toggling among students.
Assignment Status: After selecting an assignment in the “Go to Assignment” filter, you can filter by Assignment Status: Assigned to Student, Submitted to Instructor, and Graded. The “Submitted to Instructor” option will show all students that have submitted the assignment for grading. Once you grade the assignment the student is no longer on the list.
Course: If you have more than one course, you can switch to another course which will change the list of students, sections, and assignments that can be viewed within the Assignment Navigator.
Section: This allows you to view students in “All sections”, “No sections”, or in specific sections for your course. If no sections were created for your course, this field will not display.
Note: By default, TA’s will see “My Section” when they are assigned to a section of the course.
When you have navigated to the assignment to be graded, the Assignment Entry will look like this:
In the Grade field, input a percent value. For example, if your assignment is worth 20 points, but the student receives 16 points. Input 80 to indicate the student received a grade of 80%, then click
The grades will be recorded in LabArchives’s and Moodle‘s gradebook.
Click if you want to send the assignment back to the student for edits. The assignment entry will revert to Assigned. However, if you have already graded the assignment, click on the pencil edit icon in the upper-left of the Assignment box to access Re-assign to Student.
Grading an Assignment Submitted by a Group
When students submit a group assignment, they will indicate their group members on the “I worked in a group with” line. The Group members will also select location for the work using “The work for this assignment is in” line. To navigate to another student, click on the name of the student in the “I worked in a group with” field.
Note: These fields are self-selected by each student in the group.
To assign a grade to one student, navigate to one student in the group, input a percent value in the Grade field, then click
To apply the same grade to the entire group, click
If you have already assigned a grade to other students in the group, you will see the following message:
If you like to assign group members the same grade, click Overwrite. If not, click Cancel.
When you click Assign Grade to Group or Overwrite, you will see that grade was successfully assigned to the group:
These grades will be recorded in LabArchives’s and Moodle’s gradebook.
You can access student grades in Moodle and in Course Manager. In Course Manager, it can be found under the Grades tab. You can export grades to CSV or PDF files.
