Grading open response assessments (ORAs)

Open Response Assessments (ORAs) are assignments provided to the learners that require an original submission from the users, usually based on a prompt provided. These submissions are accepted in a few different formats from the user and can then be reviewed and graded. Grading is conducted by staff and instructors within a course.

Staff Graded

This is when an instructor or staff member will be required to review the students’ submissions. This option can help provide a consistent standard for grading for all students.

Grading Student ORA Submissions

In order to grade learners individually, follow the steps below.

  1. Navigate to your course by logging in to EducateWorkforce with your staff/instructor account.
  2. Within the course, navigate to the specific ORA of interest.
  3. At the bottom of the page, there are two options for assessing learners’ grades: Grade Available Responses and Manage Individual Learners.

Selecting the Grade Available Responses button offers a user-friendly process for viewing and grading learner responses. This process can be done by selecting the Staff Assessment button in the dropdown menu, in which information regarding the learner specified in the Response for: field will be displayed. Here, the staff and instructors can view, comment, and grade submissions.
