If you happen to be grading an essay question, it will make sense
for you to want to grade just the students with ungraded submissions
and then select the first student on your list. Grade this student's
essay and then select
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.
