Grading for Learning Suite exams with both computer and teacher graded responses.
I have only seen this happen this semester. I don't know what has changed.
I have an exam on Learning Suite that has both a computer graded section (76% of the grade) and a teacher graded section (24% of the grade). When the students took the exam they saw their grades for the computer graded section. But after the exam closed (unless I had already graded the free responses) their grades went, for example from 74 to zero. Students were VERY concerned about this and the emails started coming in: why have I got a zero when the computer told me that I had 74 points. I have talked with IT and they said that when the exam finishes and the teacher graded portion is not graded all of the students automatically get a zero. I think that is CRAZINESS because it causes the students all kinds of stress.
From my perspective, the logic of them receiving a zero is flawed. Don't let them see a partial score and then turn it into a zero. They should at least see the points that they earned on the computer generated part of the grades. Maybe an * could be put next to the grade to let everyone know that the teacher graded portion still needs to be compiled.
Thank you for your suggestion to improve Learning Suite! Your request is currently under review for possible implementation.
