Grading is arguably one of the most time-consuming tasks of conducting an exam. Exams created with examinr come with a grading interface to support you in this task. Moreover, some question types (numeric questions and multiple-choice questions) are automatically graded, but still give you the opportunity to override these grades.

The grading interface is available under the same path as the exam document, but you need to append display=feedback to the query string. For instance, if the exam is available under http://127.0.0.1:8181/exam.Rmd, the grading interface would be accessible under http://127.0.0.1:8181/exam.Rmd?display=feedback. If the user accessing this page does not have grading permissions, the user will see only their individual feedback (if the feedback has been made public already). Only users with grading permissions are able to access the grading interface.

At the top of the grading interface is the control bar for selecting the learner (center) and the learner’s attempt:

Attempts are identified and ordered by the time they have been finished (i.e., the last section was submitted). By default, the learner’s latest finished attempt is selected. You can also select un-finished attempts Selecting the learner/attempt will re-render the page in the state as shown to the learner for this attempt, and update the solutions according to the realized values. The button on the far right exports grades for all learners. See below for details on the export.
