Grading a VoiceThread Assignment

[Printer Icon] Print this article

When students/participants click on the link for a graded assignment, they will see the assignment you’ve created. They can immediately create or select a VoiceThread to submit for the Create Assignment, record comments on your VoiceThread for the Comment Assignment, or watch the VoiceThread for the Watch Assignment. As soon as they click on the “Submit Assignment” button, you will be able to grade their work.

When you’re ready to grade a VoiceThread assignment, simply return to your course/organization and click on the VoiceThread link again. This will display the grader.

Click on a student’s/participant's name on the right to see that student’s/participant's submission. You can click on each comment below his or her name individually to jump directly to it. Enter a grade on a percentage scale (0-100), and hit “Enter” on your keyboard. This grade will immediately be entered into your Blackboard course/organization gradebook.

Note: If you have set the assignment to be worth less than 100 points, still grade it on a scale of 0-100, and the score will be adjusted accordingly in your gradebook.

If you have students/participants who have not yet submitted their assignments, click on the “Remind” button to send them an email reminder.  Click “Remind all Students” to send an email to everyone who has not yet submitted.
