Grade a Blog

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Grades are assigned to the whole BLOG, rather than to individual posts. If grading has been enabled, instructors can access a grading interface that feeds into the GRADE CENTER, from inside the blog itself. Instructors can also make use of grading RUBRICS within blogs to facilitate the grading process.

  1. Navigate to the blog you would like to grade.
  2. Click on All Course Members to expand the list of students' names. If this is an Individual to All Students Blog rather than a Course Blog, you may see your name instead of All Course Members. If this is the case click on your name to expand the list of students' names.
