The Answer entry/Verification tool is an interactive data table that holds all assessment data. The rows in the table represent the selected students while each column represents each question included on the selected assessment. This tool can be used to manually enter student assessment data, but it also provides a destination for teachers to verify assessment data that has arrived in eDoctrina from one of the many ways available.
Verification after scanning student answer sheets if often required as it is difficult to predict how students fill in the bubbles on answer sheets. This tool provides teachers the opportunity to take a second look at any questions where a student left an answer blank, selected more than one answer, and/or provide a score for any "Teacher Scored" questions.
The Answer entry/Verification tool is accessible from the Teacher Dashboard, which can be accessed by clicking the option under the "Qucik Links" pull-down in the navigation menu.
In the Teacher Dashboard, use "Select students" filters to select the students to be included. Please note that the "Course" and "Class" are the only required selections, while the "Select Student(s)" pull-down will automatically populate with the students enrolled in the selected classes. The "Select Student(s)" option should only be used to select an individual student or group of students.
Manipulate the second row of filters to locate the desired assessment. The list of assessments can be rather extensive and it is often helpful to type the assessment ID, name, or affiliated "tags" in the search bar to easily locate the desired assessment.
When the appropriate students and assessment have been located, click the "Check Student Answers" button to open the "Answer entry/verification" screen.
The cells with a WHITE background and a "black triangle" in the top right corner indicate that the question is a Teacher Scored question. Clicking on the "black triangle" will open a pop-up window that allows the teacher to view student responses that have been entered online. If applicable, this pop-up window will provide the option to view any scoring guides or rubrics attached to the question.
Select the button to view any attached rubrics or scoring guides.
A pop-up will appear containing two tabs to choose from: the scoring guide and rubric :
The earned points for the question can be entered by selecting them in the "Answer Points" pull-down. Teacher comments, which have the option to display on the Individual Student Report are entered here.
The answer verification screen is also a great place to enter scores manually. Teachers have the option click the appropriate box and a drop-down menu will display the options available. Click the appropriate response from the drop-down and it will show in the box (which is color-coded).
This page does not automatically save, so it is a good practice to click at the top of the screen when any modification are made on the Answer Entry screen.
