Actively Learn is developing a feature that will make it faster and easier to grade short-answer questions. Through a grant from the National Science Foundation, we're implementing an algorithm that will suggest a student's grade based on historical data from similar responses to the same question. When teachers enter an assignment, they will have the option to turn on suggested short answer grading.
When do I see suggested grades?
- Our platform is confident enough in the suggested grade
- Our platform has enough historical grading data for that question
- Teacher must be using one of our default grading labels
- Once you opt-in, responses from that date forward will have suggested grades
How it looks
In the grading panel, grades will have an outline if our platform has a suggested grade.
Turn off suggested grading
From the action menu in the grading panel, there is an option to turn off suggested grading.
