Manually Scoring Skills Tests Questions

Automatically graded test scores and correct answers become available to students almost immediately after they submit their tests. For tests that include questions that must be manually graded, test scores become available to students shortly after grading is complete. Table 11 describes scoring multiple choice, text, or essay type questions.

This task is a step in Process of Working with Enrollments, Cancellations, Test Results, and Reports.

For information about how students view test results, see Reviewing Skills Test Results.

NOTE:  When a student has passed all required tests for a course, that student's enrollment status for the course is automatically updated to Completed. If the student is enrolled in a curriculum that includes the course, the curriculum Weighted Completion value is updated when the course is completed. Use the Update Grade command when manually grading a test to make sure that the curriculum Weighted Completion value is updated correctly. Do not directly set the student's enrollment status to Completed.
