What’s next?

After you have entered a student’s marks either:

  • Click the link of the student's name that you wish to mark next.

Complete the table for all students. As you save the completed responses for each student you will notice that the Marked column changes from ‘No' to ‘Yes'. When you have completed your marking for all students click the ‘Finish' button.

  • When you click ‘Next Student' or click a student's name, the responses will automatically be saved. You can also click ‘Save' at any point to save all the responses you have entered so far.
  • When entering answers, it can be faster to move down the response column by using the Tab key instead of the mouse.
  • If you accidentally leave some responses blank, a message will appear warning you the student won’t be included in reports.
