  5. A pop-up message will appear asking if you want to lock all selected submissions. Press OK.

  10. If you are happy that you have completed your marking, click Save changes

  11. N.B. You can use the Reset button to start again as it will remove all scores/feedback comments and attached feedback files.

  12. Use the Change User box at the top-right of the screen to move on to the next students. You can do this by using the blue right/left triangles OR by typing the beginning of the student's name.
  13. Alternatively, you can click on the black triangle (downward facing) and select a student from the drop-down menu.

Releasing student marks

  1. Begin by accessing the student submission information table: Moodle Assignment > Grading Summary > View All Submissions.

  3. Select All of the students if you wish to release all of the marks together, or use the checkboxes to make a selection.
  4. Scroll down to With selected... and opt for Set marking workflow state > Go before clicking OK on the popup that follows.

  5. The next page will list all of the students that you have selected. To release the marks, set Marking workflow state to Released and Notify Students to either Yes or No.
  6. Click Save Changes to release the marks.
