Save & Next
to cycle through all of your students. If you leave, all you need to do is return to the grading screen and again choose only students with ungraded submissions. When grading essay questions, LON-CAPA will give you essay grading keyword tools at the top of each grading page. For example, if you want the keyword "velocity" to be highlighted in every essay submission, just click List and type the word velocity. After grading a few essays in this example, you may realize that you want the keyword "vector" to be highlighted, this time you highlight the word on your screen with your mouse and then click the link Paste Selection to List. The keyword "vector" is now added. The Highlight Attribute choice gives you options to change the default highlighting scheme. For each student, you can also click on the option Compose message to student and leave a message for your student to read next time he or she visits the problem.
