There are generally 2 ways in which student grades can be entered into Markboard:
- Gradebook Entry
- Online Assessment
What is a Gradebook Entry?
A Gradebook Entry is a grade that is entered manually into Markboard by a teacher. This entry can be in one of the following styles: score, binary, rubric and observation. A Gradebook Entry cannot be taken by a student online, as this is strictly a way for teachers to enter grades into Markboard manually. This way a teacher can enter scores of an assessment that was taken offline.
- This article will explain how to create a Score Assessment within Markboard. A score assessment is essentially a mark "out of" a certain number. This allows to track what a student got out of a total number of points when it comes to a project, quiz, test, etc.
- This article will explain how to create a Rubric Assessment within Markboard. A rubric allows for the teacher to create a rubric with set expectations to reach and review, allowing them to mark their student based on how the met what the rubric required.
- This article will explain how to create a Binary Assessment within Markboard. A binary assessment is a pass/fail option, commonly used for marking whether a student completed a task or assignment.
- This article is how to create an observation. An observation allows teachers to create comments on a single student, a group, or an entire class. It isn't a mark, but allows teachers to track activity, behaviour, etc.
What is an Online Assessment?
An Online Assessment is an assessment that is created in Markboard for students to take online in their Chalk student account. Assessments are graded and returned back to students, either automatically or manually depending the assessment settings. Grades are then recorded in Markboard.
Note: Not all Institutions have this ability enabled. If you are unable to create an Assesssment, please discuss this with the Admin of your Insitution!
