|Updated Inline Grading||Grading Not Updated|
|If your wiki grading interface looks like the following image, you have the updated inline grading. You will see a wider, gray sidebar area on the right side of your screen. You will see a house icon and a listing of wiki pages. |
For information that applies to your system, see Grading Wikis Inline.
|If your wiki topic page looks like the following image, your school has not installed the grading updates. You do not have the updated inline grading if the right side panel is divided into sections and the first section is called About This Wiki. |
The information you need about grading appears in this topic.
After you enable grading, a column is created automatically in the Grade Center. View all the pages a student authored and edited as you determine the grade on the Participant’s Contribution page. The grade applies to the wiki, not an individual wiki page. You access the Participant’s Contribution page in the following ways:
You can edit previously assigned grades on the wiki’s Participant’s Contribution page or in a Grade Center cell.
You cannot change a graded wiki to ungraded. You need to delete the graded wiki from the Wikis listing page and the Grade Center, and create a new ungraded wiki.
Users with wikis that need grading are indicated with the needs grading icon in the Grade Center and on a wiki’s Participation Summary page under View Contributions By. In addition, they are listed on the Needs Grading page.
If during wiki creation you did not select the Show participants in needs grading status check box and select a minimum number of page saves, the needs grading icon will not appear in the Grade Center, on the wiki’s Participation Summary page, and items do not appear on the Needs Grading page.
The in progress icon shows in the Grade Center cell and in a wiki:
On the Participation Summary page, you can view a list of all student participation for the current wiki you are viewing. The information provided can help you understand how students contributed to the overall wiki content. This information can be especially useful when determining individual grades for gradable wikis.
In our example, grading starts from the wikis tool.
Use the Previous User and Next User arrows in View Contributions By section to access more contributions to grade.
You can edit the grade, feedback, or grading notes by clicking the Edit Grade function again at any time. The changes appear in the Grade section and in the Grade Center. The changes are documented in the Grade Center in the Grade History tab on the student's Grade Details page.
On the Participation Summary page, the needs grading icon appears in the View Contributions By section for group members when a group wiki needs grading. When you add a grade for a group wiki on the Participation Summary page, the grade is automatically given to all the members of the group and is populated in the corresponding column in the Grade Center for each group member. All members are assigned a grade, regardless if a member did not contribute. Students can view their group wiki grades in My Grades and on their My Contribution pages.
You can assign an individual group member a different grade than the group by editing the grade for the member. If you change a group member’s grade, and you assign a new group grade, the new group grade will not affect the individual’s new grade. The grade the individual member received and the grade the group received are both shown. The individual’s new grade will not appear to the other group members.
On the Participation Summary page, select the group member from the View Contributions By section. The Participant’s Contribution page displays the group member’s contributions. You can change the group grade for this member in the side panel by clicking Edit Grade.
The group grade and the individual group member’s edited grade appear in the Grade Center in the column that was created automatically when you enabled grading for the group wiki.
Grayed out cells appear in the group wiki column for course members who are not part of the group. You can also edit the grade from the Grade Center.
You can revert a member’s edited grade to the original group grade, which all group members received. Alternatively, edit the grade that was changed on the group wiki page by selecting the user.
If you no longer need a group, you can delete it. If the group has gradable items connected to it, the Delete Confirmation page appears. You can retain any group grade columns you need. On the Delete Confirmation page, do not select the check boxes for any columns that you want to preserve.
